The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Wednesday 2 April 2014
Amsterdam born, Swiss based violinist Gwendolyn Masin first came to the attention of the Irish public with a performance on the Late Late Show when she was eleven in 1988. Today she enjoys a busy international career as a performer and a teacher, she has continued her connections with Ireland through regular appearances and a dedication to Irish contemporary composers such as John Buckley, Eric Sweeney and Raymond Deane. Her latest CD "Origin" is a tour de force of string ensemble performances - most of which were arranged by Raymond Deane. Dances by De Falla, Bartok and others pay tribute to her multicultural background. Hear it all week on Blue.
Enjoy this short video collage of a great night when Blue broadcast live from Kaleidoscope Night at Bello Bar in Dublin last June and re-broadcast on Bank Holiday Monday's Blue (August 1st).
