The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on the next programme...

    July 27. The surname Granados - we're told - translates from the Spanish as "distinguished". On Sunday's BLUE, we'll listen to 2 distinguished pieces of music by Enrique Granados, who was born in Spain on this very day in 1867. Also coming our way tonight, new jazz from Hamburg guitarist Andreas Dopp; a selection from a new recording of Prokofiev violin sonatas by Alina Ibragimova and Steven Osborne; a sample from the 2014 debut CD by German trumpeter Benny Brown; choral octet voces 8, from the newly-issued "Eventide"; more Piazzolla featuring bandonéon-player Pablo Mainetti; jazz singer/songwriter Karen Mantler; the final two recordings of the week by Talich Quartet (see BLUE TUNES, below); and ECM artist Maria Pia De Vito with Francois Couturier, Anja Lechner and Michele Rabbia. 10pm start...

    Talich Quartet: July 21st - 27th

    Václav Talich was music director of the Czech Philharmonic from 1919 to 1939 .His nephew, Jan Talich Snr, founded the Talich Quartet in 1964. Three decades later, his son, Jan Talich Jnr, took the first violin chair in the quartet. In this, its 50th anniversary, we feature a number of Talich releases, including recent recordings of works by Mendelssohn, Brahms and Kalliwoda. Join us for Talich Quartet, each night this week on Blue.
