Description

Preface

 

Indian classical music has stuck to its roots and characteristic identity uninfluenced by alien cultures. In the South, the purity of Carnatic music was strongly anchored by the compositions of the Music Trinity - Sri Thyagaraja, Sri Muthuswamy Dikshitar and Sri Shyama Sastry - followed by a succession of eminent composers. The tradition was dutifully preserved by a long line of dedicated performing musicians.

 

The Hindu, in its columns, carried a number of perceptive articles by well-known persons with deep knowledge of the theory, practice and progress of Carnatic, North Indian and Western music. The book that is presented, now is a compilation of select articles (not reviews) on several aspects of Indian Classical music covering almost the whole century. Since the material on hand was voluminous, the articles had to be suitably edited wherever necessary. The contribution of towering vidwans of yesteryears and the way the fine art has been handed down from one generation to the next are brought to the readers through the profiles of artistes from the past to the present day.

 

The scope of the book also includes: the controversy regarding the place of language in music, the views and observations pertaining to the changing face of concerts in the past and the present, Nagaswaram, North Indian music, Western music and interest abroad in Carnatic music. The photo section presents some rare photographs of past stalwarts and events.

 

This publication provides, a panoramic picture of Indian Classical music in the 20th Century and we hope musicians and music lovers will find it interesting.

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.
Gina, USA
