Euphony (Indian Classical Music)
Euphony (Indian Classical Music)
Description
About the Book:

Euphony is a definitive book on Indian classical music. It deals mainly with the intricacies of the Karnatic form which is known for its strong spiritual content and is one of the most sophisticated, scientifically and logically complete system in several aspects. There is a separate detailed chapter on Hindustani music which, despite sharing the same origins with the Karnatic form, evolved its own peculiarities, largely due to outside influences. There is also a brief comparison between Western and Indian music. The book begins by tracing the history of music, both Karnatic and Hindustani, and outlines the different kinds of musical Instruments that are unique to them. A lucid comparison of the two systems and short biographical sketches of famous karnatic music composers are the highlights of the book.

Drawing on their own experiences as performers, the authors bring to bear their most valuable perceptions on various theoretical and practical aspects of music. The book will appeal to the beginner and the connoisseur alike and will be a worthwhile addition to the library of any serious music lover.

About the Author:

L. Subramaniam is a legend today. A brilliant violinist, he plays Indian classical music in a very individualistic and masterful style. He is also an exceptional composer, with many unique works to his credit in the field of East-West orchestral fusion. Subramaniam gave his first violin performance when he was just Six, by which tender age he was already proficient in vocal music and percussion too.

Trained to be a physician, Subramaniam decided early on that he preferred music to medicine. He also holds a Master's degree in Western classical music. With this unique knowledge of both the Indian and Western classical systems, Subramaniam is able to draw on the best of both. He has created original music works, blending the melodic and rhythmic richness of his native idiom with the contrapuntal and harmonic progressions of Western classical music.

Subramanism's wife, Viji, was herself a highly gifted classical vocalist. She collaborated with her husband in his many recordings of Indian classical music, as also in his East-West fusion compositions.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
