Faraaj Bhai,

These were recorded in 1962.

I had wrongly described the raag of composition in Post No. 1 as Madhyamavati (it is a raag in Carnatic Music). It should have been Raag Madhuvanti. The post has been corrected now.

Regards,

Rajan

Gajananrao Joshi was an eminent vocalist as well as an accomplished violinist in the Indian Classical Music world. Recordings of his full concerts are not easily available. While I am uploading a couple of snippets of a live concert to give a feel of his singing, I am still looking out for recording of his full concert. I earnestly request anybody having such a recording of Gajananbuva Joshi to please share it with us.

I love violin. In my opinion, along with Sarangi, violin is the instrument which comes closest to vocal singing. However, not many violinists have become popular in Indian Classical Music world. The names that come to mind are N. Rajam, V. G. Jog, Gajanan Rao Joshi. Though some South Indian Carnatic violints have also given concerts in Indian Classical Music style (e.g. M. S. Gopalakrishnan), I feel that their concerts are not so rich in musical content, probably because their base is essentially in carnatic system of music.

It is very important for an instrumental classical musician to have undergone rigorous vocal singing training. Gajanan Rao Joshi was basically a vocal singer and due to certain circumstances (on the insistence of a royal patron) picked up violin. Probably this is what made Gajanan Rao's violin recital worth listening. Another example is Ustad Vilayat Khan, who as I understand, used to break into vocal singing even when giving a Sitar recital.

Let me add that all these are my personal opinion.

I like N. Rajam's violin recital. She was a disciple of Pt. Omkarnath Thakur. Uploading her recital - Rag Bageshri.

The zip files are split into two parts due to size limitation of a post in HF. Please download both the parts in same directory and then extract using winrar. It will extract them into a single file.

I agree with you RajanCS. I also prefer the North Indian style but I have a real soft spot for Lakshminarayan Subramaniam who is an extraordinarily gifted carnatic violinist. In case you haven't heard it, I recommend the album Beyond (1996) for the tracks Weeping Soul and Wandering Saint. These haunting pieces really capture the soul of Indian music.

Also, I made a post in the Hindustani Violinists, A rare breed thread listing some wonderful Hindustani violinists which you may find useful. Most notable are Prabhakar Jog (try Gaanara Violin - Bhaktigeete Volume 6) and Indrayudh Bose (try Ahir Bhairav, Jog 2007).

I have all of these albums and can post then as torrents if you wish (bitrate and size too high for HF).

Nirvana,

Sincere thanks for your comments and suggestions. In fact I was also following the thread - Hindustani Violinists, A rare breed - closely. I had also seen your posts mentioned above. I have spoken to my friend who is himself a violinist. I understand from him that Prabhakar Jog used to give public performance called Gaanare Violin (Singing Violin). I will take the CDs from him and listen.

Thanks again for the pointer.

Regards,

Rajan

I just found this website which has free CD rips of Indian music to download via rapidshare. Most of them are FLAC or 320kbps.

http://www.welove-music.net/search/label/Indian

There are a couple of violin albums by Kala Ramnath, and a Shahid Parvez album.

The album Pure by Kaushiki Chakrabarty is a must-have. I downloaded it from the vagos.fm link so I can confirm that those particular rapidshare links definitely work.

The Bhairavi rendition was recorded in 1965 when Pt. Omkarnath Thakur gave a public performance. Bhairavi, needless to say, was the concluding piece in that program. Bhimpalas was the main raag sung by him in that program. In line with the forum policy, the rar file is split into 2 parts so that each part is less than 20 MB.
