The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on the next programme...

    Nov 22.  On this Saturday's BLUE, Eamonn seamlesslessly (?) intersperses the new with the old: Philippe Cassard interprets Schubert; ECM trio Jokleba plays original fare from a recent issue; virtuoso bass-player Stanley Clarke leads his band on the just-released "Up"; Marc-André Hamelin performs a low-key solo piano piece by the sadly-neglected Georgy Catoire, from a recording that was first made available in 1999; we'll hear more from Anouar Brahem (see BLUE TUNES, below); Les Lunaisiens advise workers, en Francais, to arise from our slumbers; spanking-new John Surman (pictured), featured with the Bergen Big Band; and Andreas Staier perfoms a Schubert variation on a period piano. 10pm...

    The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Though Alexander Scriabin died at the age of 43, he wrote much of the 20th century's finest music for piano. Hear a selection of his preludes and études each night this week.

    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.
