The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Monday 24 March 2014

This Week on Blue....

Pianist Ivan Ilic is a regular visitor to Ireland and returns this month for a brief tour. The Serbian-American Paris-based pianist has signed a new multi-album recording contract with Chandos Records, following internationally acclaimed recordings of Godowsky and Feldman. His first project under the label will be a series devoted to the solo piano works of Czech composer Antoine Reicha, a contemporary and lifelong friend of Beethoven. Ivan joins Carl Wednesday night for a Blue of the Night Session and we'll feature tracks from Ivan's extensive discography all week. (Photo by Irina Popa)

Listen Again...

Raised in the heart of the Kerry Gaeltacht and immersed in traditional music since childhood, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh is one of Ireland's leading traditional singers. For thirteen years she was the singer and flute player with Danú before embarking on a solo career that encompasses a wide range of activities including singing, composing, tutoring and most recently broadcasting. While she maintains a strict adherence to the tradition in much of her music, she is also determined to add other colours to her palette with some recent musical adventures. Enjoy this wide range all week on Blue as she is under the Blue spotlight. And on Wednesday Muireann joins us for a Live Session accompanied by the brilliant Gerry O'Beirne. (Photo:Bríd Ní Luasaigh)

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

All this week, we feature pianist, composer, and current Charles Eliot Norton Professor of Poetry at Harvard, Herbie Hancock, an artist who has enjoyed critical and popular acclaim

LOUIS REMEMBERED

It's been a sad year for the music world with the loss of many iconic figures. One of our own legends, jazz guitarist Louis Stewart left us earlier this year. Louis' musical legacy is recognised and lauded in the international jazz world. At home in Ireland, where he chose to base himself even at the peak of his international fame, he became a friend and mentor to many in a burgeoning jazz community. His loss is immense. In March 2014, Louis was the featured artist on The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran. This special programme features many of Louis' wonderful performances and his chat with Carl, recalling his early days and the highlights of his international career.
