    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    Sergei Rachmaninov's - inextricably Russian - orchestral and chamber works are featured on the programme all this week: enjoy rhapsodic majesty, minor keys and melancholy, nightly.

    Anuoar Brahem Souvenance;  March 30th- April 5th

    Oud player Anouar Brahem has consistently produced mesmerising music for the ECM label. His latest work is no exception. Inspired by the political and social upheaval in his native Tunisia, Souvenance is supremely captivating and benefits from his piano based quartet along with a string orchestra. He's in the National Concert Hall next week with his quartet - so this week he is in the Blue spotlight.
