Description
About the Book:

Music to the Ears: great Masters of Hindustani Instrumental Music is a modest attempt to assess the life and contribution of about thirty personalities who have devoted their life - time to the creation, enrichment and propagation of Hindustani instrumental music primarily through performance, teaching and research. The author tries to present profiles of these personalities whom he had seen, heard, met and known on friendly terms, over the years in a non - conventional manner by combining reminiscence, interview, analysis, discussion and biographical information in a composite form.

The interest in Hindustani music is growing in India and abroad significantly and Music to the Ears: Great Masters of Hindustani Instrumental Music will benefit both students and connoisseurs of music.

Mohan Nadkarni has been acknowledged as one of the best known music critics in India since 1948 . Basically a student of Sanskrit literature and Ancient Indian History, he later on took to Indian musicology and aesthetics. He has contributed articles and reviews of concerts and recorded music as well as Sanskrit musical in English. A broadcaster and telecaster in English and Marathi, his other books are At the Center: Fifteen Musicians of Madhya Parades; Bal Gandharva: The Non-Peril Thespian; Bhimsen Joshi: A Biography; Great Masters of Hindustani Vocal Music, and Samvaad Directory of Indian Classical Musicians and Dancers.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
