Synopsis

Album Description
HE DOTH BESTRIDE OUR NARROW WORLD LIKE A COLOSSUS, wrote Shakespeare of another man in another time, but in our musical world today, the description could be applied most fittingly to Ravi Shankar. In inspiration we have the key Ravi Shankar himself becomes enraptured when he makes music; and his audience, sharing in his mood, experiences ennoblement, exaltation, even ecstasy. By reaching directly into the souls and hearts of his listeners, Ravi Shankar thus breaks throuygh natural frontiers and cultural barriers; and by basing his art on the triple principles of inspiration, improvisation and ornamentation, he remains true to the most ancient traditions of Indian Music, while being at the same time one in spirit with the great masters of Renaissance and Baroquemusic in Europe. A man for all seasons, a man for all time - Ravi Shankar is truly an artist for all of humanity.
