Album Notes
India’s celebrated musician and composer, Chitravina N Ravikiran has been dubbed as the “Mozart of Indian Music” by world media as much for his prodigious entry at age two as for his stunning artistry and inventive creations. The maestro has revealed another facet of his to music aficionados by becoming the first major classical slide player in the world to present Beethoven’s evergreen Fur Elise. The artist's own codification of Beethoven’s melody into an Indian-classical style raga (named Veetavanam, suggestive of the name of the master-composer) and his improvisatory prelude in it bestow an enchanting original touch to one of the most popular melodies of all time.

Innovative and Enchanting
What a wonderful interpretation of the familiar western melody by the artiste, Chitravina N Ravikiran! I especially like the way in which the music gradually unfolds from a western interpretation to an Indian classical style without taking anything away from the original melody. It was a short and haunting piece and look forward to hearing more innovative pieces from this artist. The Chitravina sounds like a guitar initially but gradually develops its own personality which comes close to the human voice.

Looking forward to more.
