Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the classic release of carnatic music in Western markets. Part of the Nonesuch Explorer series, it was originally released in 1968, five years before Ramnad Krishnan died of a heart condition. This album makes use of a number of compositions by Tyagaraja, improvised upon thoroughly by the great vidwan of the form. The music needs almost no introduction beyond that of the liner notes and the sounds themselves. The improvised passages are clearly improvised by a master, exploring the limits of the ragam to their fullest. For someone looking to make a first step in a collection of carnatic music, this would be the obvious choice. For someone already familiar with the music, this should already be in the collection.
