The Blue of the Night with Eamonn Lenihan

    Nightly, 10pm - 1am

    Coming up on Friday's programme…

    July 10. Louth Contemporary Music recently issued a recording of a Betty Olivero choral work, one performed by Trio Mediaeval, Cliona Doris (harp), Garth Knox (viola), Agnes Versterman (cello) and Sylvain Lemaitre (percussion). Olivero is a former pupil of Luciano Berio. On tonight's BLUE, Eamonn presents Olivero's "In the Sea there is a Tower", which gets its title from the first line of a Sephardi folk song. We'll also hear Trio Mediaeval from "Aquilonis" (see BLUE TUNES, below); new (but newly available) Al Di Meola; Nick Drake (pictured) from "Five Leaves Left"; vintage Amadeus Quartet;  an Art Pepper tune that was deidicated to the family pet; jazz wunderkind Joey Alexander; and a new recording of Beethoven's Violin Concerto In D by Thomas Gould. 10pm start...
