CD Reviews

Consumate Musician
Howard Ross | Ocean City, NJ United States | 06/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I agree with the above reviews - I have about 80 Indian Classical CDs and Sultan Khan is a favorite - He's very lyrical while retaining good classical form - sort of reminds me of the asthetic Chopin would have in Western Classical Music. My other favorite is Sabri Khan who has a little more austere intensity - Ram Narayan is very austere and Dhrupad like."
Beautiful Indian classical music

"A beautiful set of two long-ish ragas, recorded in 1974 by two members of Ravi Shankar's touring ensemble in an informal Marin County concert. Khan plays the sarangi, an elaborate stringed instrument that is played with a bow, like a violin. These two pieces are all about the mellow, languid "alap," (the slow, melodic introductory movement of longer Indian classical pieces... and should be a treat for anyone in search of something mellow to zone out on. Lovely stuff... definitely worth checking out."
Sensitive, heart warming and thought provoking | 09/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've listened to numerous North Indian Saranghi players (both on CD, and live in New York), but none of them moved me as deeply as Ustad Sultan Khan. His tone and sensitivity inspire emotion like noone else."
