The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Wednesday 16 April 2014

This week on Blue Tunes...

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.
