Album Notes
"L Subramaniam is the best this listener has heard." - The New York Times

"Violinist L Subramaniam proved to be a peerless virtuoso. Subramaniam’s poetic imagination formed inexhaustible permutations" - Los Angeles Times

L Subramaniam, India's foremost violinist, orchestral composer and creator of the Global Fusion concept, is perhaps the greatest representative of Indian classical music today. He has performed/recorded with some of the greatest musicians of all times including Yehudi Menhuin, Stephane Grapelli, Herbie Hancock, Ali Akbar Khan, Ravi Shankar, George Harrison and Stevie Wonder. He has written/performed orchestral compositions with the New York Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Orchestra Nationale du Lille, among others.

This album presents the art of Carnatic music, which has one of the most sophisticated melodic and rhythmic structures in the world.

This album features a Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi in raga Dharmavathi (tonic, major second, minor third, augmented fourth, perfect fifth, major sixth and major seventh, both in ascending and descending). Dharmavathi is one among the 72 melakartha raga (parent scales) in Carnatic music. The Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi is one of the most complex forms of musical expression in Carnatic music. This Pallavi is set to Mishra Chapu tala of 7 beats, divided as 3+4.
