From the CD

Dr. Prabha Atre has authored various academic books on the multiple facets of music that are especially relevant for current day music trends and performances. Her first book ‘Swaramayee’, a compilation of her numerous articles on music that bagged the Maharashtra State Government Award in 1989 is a classic example of her original yet analytical thinking. Her second book ‘Swaralee’ published in 1992 also received numerous accolades. Madhya Pradesh Government Hindi Granth Academy has published Hindi translation of her books ‘Swaramayee’ and ‘Swaralee’ with a view of sharing the knowledge contained in her books with Hindi knowing music lovers. Her third book ‘Swaranginee’ published in 1994 carried 200 of her popular compositions in Classical and light Classical music. The albums of these compositions will be available in the market very soon. A book in English - ‘Enlightening the listener - Contemporary North Indian Classical Vocal music performance’ (accompanied with a cassette) has achieved the objective in enabling the global music lovers to understand and appreciate Indian music. A book of poems in Marathi titled - ‘Antaswar’ by Dr. Atre brings out another unique aspect of her creative personality.

Dr. Prabha Atre was trained in the traditional ‘guru-shishya parampara’ by the two doyens of the Kirana Gharana - the late Sureshbabu Mane and his famous sister Padmabhushan Hirabai Badodekar. She also drew much inspiration from the styles of the renowned maestros, Amir Khan and Bade Gulam Ali Khan. Today, she is herself an acclaimed guru both in performance and research. Quite a few of her students are already well known stage and mass media performers. Her P.H.D. students have had the advantage of testing their work in the context of contemporary performances. Additionally, she has been teaching at foreign universities as a visiting professor. Her public concerts, Radio and TV programs and lecture - demonstrations in India and abroad to audiences of varying tastes have always been highly appreciated. She was honoured with the National Award - ‘PADMASHREE’ in 1990 and the ‘SANGEET NATAK ACADEMY’ award in 1991 as the Indian Government’s appreciation for her outstanding role in enriching, preserving and popularizing the Indian Music.

Dr. Atre’s sincerity and sensitivity towards music clearly surface in her thinking and singing. Whether she renders a khayal, Tarana, Thumri, Dadra, Ghazal or Bhajan, her distinct style and typical ingenuity in design and presentation is always visible. Indeed, her pleasant and dignified presence on stage, her chaste and creative approach towards music, her imaginative play with subtleties of tones, her effortless control over intricate yet appealing phrases in aalaap, taan and sargam and her stirring portrayal of the emotional themes make her music a singularly satisfying experience.

This album present Raag Chandrakauns in the voice of the eminent classical singer Dr. Prabha Atre.

Raag Chandrakauns - a pentatonic late night Raag

Raag Chandrakauns is a classical North Indian moon Raag. It belongs to the ‘Kauns’ group but has the note shuddha nishad as its anchor. Except for this note, it is similar to Raag Maalkauns and is rendered in semblance to it. However, shuddha nishad marks it with a noticeable difference and lends Raag Chandrakauns a totally different character. Dr. Prabha Atre’s measured exploration of the subtle nuances of this Raag depicts the right mood, thus instantly reaching the inner depths of the listeners.

Dr. Prabha Atre - Deep voice of Knowledge and Talent

A renowned personality in the field of classical music, Dr. Prabha Atre has carved a place of distinction for herself in the field of music as a brilliant thinker, performer, composer and guru. Today, she can be hailed as one of the senior most front ranking female vocalists of the country representing the Kirana Gharana.

Dr. Prabha Atre is a science and a law graduate, and holds a Doctorate in music. A former Assistant Producer with ALL INDIA RADIO, former Professor and Head of the Department of Music, SNDT Women’s University, Mumbai, and former Producer & Director of the recording company ‘Swarashree’, devoted only to Classical Music, Dr. Prabha Atre displays immense talent and grit towards contributing to the field of music. She displays constant innovation and creative endeavour that distinguishes her from other vocalists, both in classical and light classical idioms. At present she is involved in several social, educational and cultural institutions as a committee member.

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.
