The remaining two traditional pieces are a bonus, showing Shankar's talent at his peak.
A must-have collection at a bargain price!
Ultimately, this album is a great introduction to Shankar's work and to Indian classical in general. However, for those interested in a slightly more accessible entre (in the Western sense), his "West Meets East" collaborations with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and others might be a more ideal starting point.
- Improvisations on the theme music from "Pather Panchali" (movie)
- Fire Night
- Raga Rageshri (Part 1)
- (Part 2)
- (Part 3)
(Angel - ADD - 1962 - remastered)
This album from 1962 gained some attention for Ravi Shankar in the west and for good reason; this is a wonderful introduction to the musicianship and style of the music of India. This is a Five Star album.
