EMI's double-CD collection of Ravi Shankar's works including Western instruments, however, is one of the exceptions, for it adds a great deal even to the conversation carried on by those who have paid attention to the career of the man widely considered modern-day India's greatest musician. The attraction here, in a nutshell, is that this CD set brings together music recorded between 1967 and 1982, much of it only sporadically available up to now. There are two concertos for Shankar's sitar (a large Indian lute with sympathetically resonating strings) and orchestra, plus works he wrote for collaborations with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal. For purposes of comparison, there's also one performance by Shankar alone.

Genre: Documentaire

Joueur de sitar virtuose, l'un des plus connus au monde, Ravi Shankar fut le premier ambassadeur de la musique indienne, qu'il popularisa en Occident à partir de 1956. Tout au long de sa longue carrière, il s'est posé la question de la transmission de son art. À la différence du classique occidental, la musique indienne se transmet de manière orale, dans la quotidienneté et le compagnonnage. Ce documentaire le montre lors de son dernier passage à Paris, qu'il présente lui-même comme son ultime voyage en Europe, où il avait choisi de donner pour la première fois une leçon de musique au public de la salle Pleyel.

Ali Akhbar Khan: The son of influential Hindustani musician Allaudin Khan, Ali Akbar Khan was one of the Eastern world's greatest musicians. A master of the sarod, a 25-stringed, lute-like, Indian instrument, Khan brought the Northern Indian classical music to the international stage. A five-time Grammy nominee, Khan was called, by Yehudi Menuhin, "an absolute genius, the greatest musician in the world." Tracing his ancestral roots to Mian Tansen, a 16th century musician in the court of Emperor Akbar, Khan began studying music at the age of three.
