The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on Friday’s programme…

    Jan 30. Tonight, an American pianist called Earl goes wild about Rachmaninov; Willie Dixon contemplates a world in which sea-water is made from whiskey; Duke Ellington (along with his orchestra) pays tribute to Billy Strayhorn; the Swedish Chamber Orchestra performs a pastoral suite by Gunnar de Frumerie; Mats Edén fiddles some Swedish folk; the usually-focussed Herbie Hancock does some driftin’; 3 ensembles play the music of Astor Piazzolla; Felix “Felice” Behrendt invites us to have a happy day; the late Elliott Smith tells of a certain Miss - or should that be Ms? - Misery; the Irish Youth Chamber Choir sings a composition by Howard Skempton; and we hear more from this week’s featured recording by Ryuichi Sakamoto and the Morelenbaums (see BLUE TUNES, below). 10pm start…

    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.

    Tom Jobim Tribute: January 26th - February 1st

    The cellist/arranger Jacques Morelenbaum and his singer/wife, Paula, were a big part of the life of Antonio Carlos Jobim (pictured), shaping the music of his last recordings. They paid a fitting tribute to “Tom” by recording an album in his Rio de Janeiro home studio - suitably titled "Casa".  We mark Tom Jobim’s birthday this week by shining the spotlight on this moving tribute with Ryucihi Sakamoto on piano and Jobim’s son Paulo on guitar.
