    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Anne Queffélec is an award-winning pianist. Each night this week, Carl and Eamonn will air tracks from the Parisian's new CD of early 20th century French music, Satie & Compagnie.

     

    Blue Tunes June 8th - 14th

    Parisian Anne Queffélec - the daughter and sister of writers - is passionate about literature. That said, Anne has, from an early age, devoted her own efforts to music. She was awarded first prize at the 1968 international piano competition in Munich, and at Leeds the following year. “The piano is,” she believes, “an orchestra in miniature.” Her latest Mirare release, “Satie & Compagnie” focuses on French composers of the early 20th century.

    We’ll be airing selections from the CD all this week on BLUE. Expect to hear music by Ravel, Debussy, Hahn, Poulenc, Satie and others, nightly, from 10pm.

    Anouar Brahem: November 17th - 23rd

    Tunisian oud-player Anouar Brahem has over the years created his own delicate sound – deeply rooted in Arabic classical and folk music yet infused with contemporary jazz sensibilities. His music is the real example of fusion – a troubadour of world music; Brahem’s extensive catalogue on ECM Records is our Blue Tunes focus all this week.
     
     

    Teddy Wilson: November 24th - 30th

    From the 1930s until the 1980s, Teddy Wilson provided accompaniment for Louis Armstrong, Benny Carter, Benny Goodman, Lester Young et al. He was Billie Holiday's musical director and made a number of fine albums under his own name. This polished pianist is featured each night this week on Blue.
