One of the Best Recordings from One of the Best Musicians
Kevin Conare | Philadelphia, PA USA | 02/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording is a must have, I would put it in the category of the 10 cd's I would take to that proverbial desert island. For anyone entering the wide field of Indian classical music, here is a great recording by the master of the bansuri -- bamboo flute. Raga Darbari Kanada is a midnight raga and considered the most stately of all the ragas. Incredibly, Hariprasad-ji captures this with a simple bamboo flute. Many Westerners think that the essence of Indian music is in the flourish. But, in fact, often it is in the ability to sustain one note, without vibrato or trill, and bring out its fullness of feeling. Hariprasad Chaurasia does that brilliantly here. This is a cd to listen to in the stillness of the night. Try to avoid the temptation to use it as background music for yoga or reading. Instead, listen. If you need to distract your mind, read the liner notes. It will be well worth your effort, as even a novice will be able to hear how a master musician brings out the nectar of a raga."
Midnight voyage

"This recording of Hariprasad is epitomal for his clear full sound as well as densely textured style. The raga is a midnight raga and usually first performed by new artists just breaking into concert settings, so having Hariprasad's rendition is quite a boon for the developing musician. An added bonus is a brilliant version of raga Pilu as the closer for the recording."
An all time best

"The alap in this recording is the ultimate musical experience. This raga lends itself extremely well to the bansuri and Chaurasia's rendering is pure magic."
