Here at last is the definitive Ravi Shankar Collection - ten discs covering 40 years of the master's recordings for EMI. This set includes collaborations with such luminaries as Ali Akbar Khan, Yehudi Menuhin, Jean-Pierre Rampal, and a host of other musicians both east and west.

Besides the ten discs, there is a 27 page booklet (English, German, French) and exclusive access to a website with additional audio and video content.

If you are familiar with Ravi Shankar, there is little I can say beyond the fact that the discs are exquisitely mastered, generously full, and contain a tremendous wealth of performances from an incomparable career.

And If you have not yet heard the music of Ravi Shankar - one of the greatest improvisational musicians of this, or any other age - this is your opportunity to enter into a musical experience that goes beyond hearing, beyond words, resonating deep into the depths of the infinite soul.

Need I mention that the offering of this superb box set for less than $4.00 per disc is a fantastic deal?

Hopefully this wonderful collection will stay in publication for years to come, for subsequent generations to enjoy.

Just in case it doesn't, I recommend you buy it right away!

Before some marketing exec realizes they should be charging a whole lot more for this wonderful collection of masterpieces!

There is popular India vocal music like Madame Subalakshmi, seldom heard by people who know sitar. There is a little Japanese Kyoto that I like very much. There are tons of straight forward traditional raga, with Lap portions that will take your mind to heaven. I don't like some of the mixes of western symphonic with sitar, but that may be my character flaw. Ravi's daughter Anouska currently does a lot of music that is that kind of mix which is wonderful. (Anouska's not on this compilation) If you know & very much like Ravi Skankar, you'll be very happy you bought this product. Namaste.

All music of Ravi Shankar is precious, and of course this is no exception. The photo here is misleading as the music is much older than the age the photograph depicts. He has not recorded for any company in the last twenty five years except a couple for EMI , like live at Carnegie Hall and Chants of India. The same old recordings are released again and again with new covers. The only company which releases authentic music from the Archives is his own company East Meets West Music. Also all the profit from that company goes to the Ravi Shankar Foundation. If you love Ravi Shankar and his music, buy only EMWMusic releases. This way you know you are supporting his legacy.

Deserves of course nothing less than five. I would I could give it more.

It seems to be all here, the Ravi Shankar I grew up with.

The sets with Sir Yehudi Menuhin, the film music, and the magnificent long Raga to Mishra Pilloo...all there.

I now have all, I think of the music of Mr. Shankar. I fell in love with Indian music when I first heard Shankar in the 60's and have a definitive collection of singing and instrumental music of India

If you frequently jones for sitar and Indian music, this is your set. The addition of orchestral, violin and flute back-up add to the depth of the spritual tones of the sitar. Music to paint by, meditate, do menial tasks, make love, what have you... agreat collection
