Product Description

This CD explores the depth of Indian tonality on a large fretted stringed instrument known as the surbahar. Designed especially for revealing the dynamics of Indian melodic form the surbahar,which looks like an oversized sitar, opens the window to a rich array of emotional texture. Accompanied by the pakhawaj, the ancient two sided hand drum, and the all encompassing spaciousness of the tambura; the surbahar inspires and invites listeners towards tranquil contemplation


"Beautiful and accurate ornamentation....neat and impeccable rhythm....and a constant thrust and parry between the percussionist and the surbahar illustrate Landsberg's excellent command of the instrument. -- Times of India, December 20, l995

"His ear is as fine as his fingers are practiced. His perception of the tune and intonations of the raga is truly authentic...A lovely and consistent tonality in all octaves is the feature of his art. Impressive is his intimate comprehension of complex ragas even a majority of Indian musicians shy away from...." -- The Hindu, December 15,1995
