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 Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, 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.

Track 1 & 2
The first composition, Siddhi vinayakam is a kriti composed by Muthuswami Dikshitar in the raga Shanmukhapriya set to Rupaka tala, a three beat cycle. 

Tracks 3, 4 & 5
The second composition is a Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi in the ancient raga Kharaharapriya. The Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi is one of the most complex forms of musical expression in Carnatic music. This Pallavi is set to Tisra Matya Tala of 8 beats, divided as 3+2+3. After the Pallavi, there is a swara kalpana in Kharaharapriya followed by three other ragas: Neelambari, Malayamaruta and Hamsanandi.

Track 6
The final composition is a Thiruppugazh which is based on the very traditional raga Thodi. It is set to a rhythmic cycle of 16 beats, divided as 5+5+6. This is a composition of the saint Arunagirinathar.
