The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on Saturday's programme...

    Nov 1. Into a new month, and Eamonn presents more late-night sounds that can simultaneously relax and stimulate. These include symphonic Grieg; the latest joint effort by Robert Fripp (pictured) and Theo Travis; the Hilliard Ensemble, from the last release before retirement later this year, a CD devoted to English carols and motets from the 15th century; the ECM debut by Norwegian trio Lumen Drones; vocalist Tim Bowness and multi-instrumentalist Peter Chilvers from the recently-available "california, norfolk"; 2 more Jacques Loussier Trio readings of the  classical repertoire (see BLUE TUNES, below); and Wagner's music, played by Wilhem Latchoumia.

    A 10:15pm start-time anticipated, immediately following the live opera broadcast from Wexford...

    Jacques Loussier: Oct  27th - November 2nd
     
    Pianist Jacques Loussier turned 80 earlier this week. He's composed soundtracks for nearly 70 films but is best-known for his jazz treatments of works by Satie, Debussy, Ravel, Vivaldi, Schumann and in particular J.S. Bach. All this week, we pay a birthday tribute on BLUE, with recordings of Loussier interpreting a number of classical composers. And we dip into two 2-CD retrospective releases which came out on Telarc in 2014: "My Personal Favorites: The Jacques Loussier Trio Plays Bach" and "Beyond Bach: Other Composers I Adore".
