    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    German experimental pianist Hauschka is under the Blue spotlight - prepared piano, exciting soundscapes, solo works plus his recent duet outing with violinist Hilary Hahn.

    Blue Tunes Recommended -

    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.
