    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Bill Evans, an influential pianist influenced by both Debussy and Bud Powell, was born 85 years ago. This week, Eamonn presents some of Evans' finest solo, duo and trio recordings.

    Blue Tunes

    The Blue of the Night is firmly focussed on the master this week, with a recording of J.S. Bach's Violin Concertos by the Dunedin Consort. Although Bach was most famous as an organist and keyboard player, he was also a fine violinist; his characteristic flair is evident in the many dazzling moments he creates. Under the musical direction of John Butt, the CD includes one of his greatest masterpieces - the Double Concerto for two violins. Carl will be enjoying this recording all week on Blue.
