Notes and Editorial Reviews

Not only is Ravi Shankar’s name synonymous with the sitar, he has also opened the way to musical genres such as fusion and minimalism through his interaction with other artists, including The Beatles, the composer Philip Glass, the conductors Zubin Mehta and André Previn, the flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal and the violinist Yehudi Menuhin. Diverse aspects of his collaborative magic are captured in this survey, which embraces classical Indian ragas, duets, trios, ensemble performances and concertos with orchestra.
