Product Description

Review

An important live performance. Malgunji is disarmingly delicate and light, only to surprise you with its hidden depth. -- Fanfare, Nov/Dec 1996

Banerjee and Chatterjee are in top form, and the sound is superb. -- Rhythm Music January/February 1997

I like rock music and it took me years to appreciate the wonder of live recordings, having been raised on Beatles studio albums.

This recording is contemplative and joyous.

I am not an expert on Northern Indian music - merely a beginner - and I do not listen to enough Western classical music. It has taken me years to learn to enjoy sitar. Like many I was first exposed to it by George Harrison, then Ravi Shankar and finally by many evenings of dining in Little India restaurants in the East Village of Manahattan where live music is played.

Nikhil Banerjee is a truly magical artist and musician. There is so much beauty and grace in his playing on this disc. It is enchanting. This reord brings me peace and leaves me in quite awe. I am so glad I have discovered this incredible artist. His communication is universal.

I write this for those who like the Grateful Dead, The Doors, Santana among others. Buy this. The sitar and the drumming is incredible.

Being a live recording, the length of the ragas are not limited by what could have been on one side of an LP record. The playing is truly inspired.

Pt. Nikhil Banerjee was one of the best sitarists who ever lived - and his legacy still lives on. His ability to draw upon multiple sources in his ragas , while not sticking so much to structure of the raga, created a sense of beauty in tonality.

His rendition of Malgunji is not exception. He loosely follows the Malgunji chalan and intersperses Rageshri and Bageshri into his work. Listen to the vilambit and drut gats late at night to hear the heart of what Malgunji is. Anindo (who plays tabla) is much younger in this album.

Highly recommended listening.

Format: Audio CD
An 80-minute rare rag for early evening with an alap-jor of 26 minutes (longer than most recorded ragas): this live recording of a performance in Munich, Germany, in 1980 affords the proper measure of time in which Nikhil Banerjee, a grand master of sitar, can seriously explore a lovely raga. Raga Malgunji has many of the elements of the Shri family of ragas, particularly Rageshri and Bageshri, and as we listen, nay, absorb this peaceful, romantic raga, we feel joy and marvel in the improvisations. The young Anindo Chatterjee envelopes the gat, the final sections, with his tabla, incisively playing the common 16-beat teental rhythms, slow and fast. The album is as good as it gets, and if you are devotee and collector of Indian classical music, it belongs on your shelf.

Format: Audio CD
For most of us in the West, the late Ravi Shankar long represented North Indian sitar playing. But as my familiarity with Indian classical music grew and my record collection expanded, I found myself reaching for a disc by Nikhil Bannerjee when I was looking for a transcendent experience. This disc, recorded in Munich in 1980, is one of his very best.

Also gradually, my focus shifted from the fast-paced conclusion of a raga to the slow, unmetered alap at the begining. The lengthy alap here is an emotional journey, starting in the sitar's lowest register and working its way to gloriously melodic heights. The entire work is a model of structural integrity achieved via unpredictable turns and byways.

Bannerjee is assisted by then-young Anindo Chatterjee, a tabla drummer capable of leading, not simply echoing, melodic exchanges with the soloist. This is an essential disc.
