Mostly my radio programs of one hour have to be produced rapidly. The rule is 95% music plus 5% left for announcements/introduction. That’s good for listeners from outside who do not understand Dutch. Selection and sequencing are crucial to draw listeners in. Mostly the programs are short portraits of a musician or a group, sometimes specific themes and now and then a potpourri of heterogeneous pieces that find each other, make themselves fit with some goodwill of the listener.
July offers a portrait of young French pianist Eve Risser and a blind collection of piano trio pieces. Blind here means: first listen and names of performers only afterwards. Eve Risser recently released des pas sur la neige, a remarkable solo-album and she toured with her still more remarkable White Desert Orchestra that sets a new tone in creative music (read a review HERE … ). Her music(-making) is related to the work of Norwegian pianist Christian Wallumrød and the Norwegian-French improvisation group Dans Les Arbres (see the playlist below). Both programs of july can easily accessed.

The first august program brings together wonderful cutting-edge live-recordings of well known Portuguese violinist Carlos “Zingaro” Alves with the darkly rumbling piano works of Argentinian bandoneonist Dino Saluzzi performed by pianist Horacio Lavandra, new solo work by German-French contrabassist Pascal Niggenkemper from New York, a piece by young composer Florian Wittenburg and a small splinter by young French duo Petite Vengeance. Subsequent pieces surprisingly have something in common … I discovered (later).
