The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on the next programme...

    Oct 26. Sunday's BLUE gathers more seemingly-disparate elements and ties them in a neat little bundle: Ella Fitzgerald sings a song by the late Jack Bruce; we hear Belfast-born Michael McHale, in advance of the pianist's appearance in Castleconnell, Co Limerick on Tuesday; the voice of Dubliner Riona Sally Hartman; lesser-known works by Aleksander Zarzycki, William Wallace and Emil Mlynarski; sax-player Art Pepper (pictured), from the re-issue of "Smack Up"; and the last 2 pieces of the week by Franz Liszt (see BLUE TUNES, below). 10pm start...

    Franz Liszt: Oct  20th - 26th
     
    Fransz Liszt is remembered as a virtuoso. Much of his self-composed concert repertoire is considered to be the most technically-difficult music written for piano. In the week of the anniversary of his birth, "The Blue Of The Night" features Liszt's late career compositions, including low-key pieces for cello and piano performed by, amongst others, Paul Lewis, Nikolai Lugansky, Pascal Amoyel and Emmanuelle Bertrand. Join us any night between now and Sunday, from 10pm...
