Music Composer: Ilaiyaraaja
Violinist: VS Narasimhan
Album: How to name it?
Year: 1986 the fusion of Indian and Western classical music, dedicated to the carnatic master Tyagaraja and to J. S. Bach.
It features a fusion of the Carnatic form and ragas with Bach partitas, fugues and Baroque musical textures.

About the Music Composer:
Ilaiyaraaja (Tamil: இளையராஜா) (born June 2, 1943 as Gnanadesikan) is an Indian film composer, singer, and lyricist. Composed over 4,000 songs and provided film scores for more than 800 Indian films in various languages in a career spanning more than 30 years.

Ilaiyaraaja was a prominent composer of film music in South Indian cinema during the late 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s.[3] His work integrated Tamil folk lyricism and introduced broader Western musical sensibilities into the South Indian musical mainstream...

His different styles of music allowed him to create syncretic pieces of music combining very different musical idioms in unified, coherent musical statements.

Ilaiyaraaja has composed Indian film songs that amalgamated elements of genres such as pop acoustic guitar-propelled Western folk, jazz, rock and roll, dance music (e.g., disco), psychedelia, funk, doo-wop, march, bossa nova, flamenco, pathos, Indian folk/traditional, Afro-tribal, and Indian classical...

About Ilayaraja ....
Ilayaraja was born as Rasayya into a poor rural family in Pannaipuram, Theni district, Tamil Nadu, India on June 2, 1943. He was the third son of Daniel Ramaswamy and Chinnathayammal. His rural background exposed him to the folk songs, sung by villagers whilst at work in the fields. As his village did not have a school, he had to walk to Kombai, the nearest town, just to get an education. Family troubles forced him to give up studies after class eight and instead sing for his elder step brother, Pavalar Varadarajan, whose services were hired by the Communist Party of India to popularize and further their cause. Ilayaraja accompanied his brother for about ten years staging concerts in Pannaipuram and the surrounding villages and towns, enjoying the tag of `the musical Palavar brothers. He first tried his hand at composing music during this period: he set to music an elegy written by the Tamil poet laureate Kannadasan for Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister..

achievement of ''raja''..

* song of Thalapathi (1991) was amongst the songs listed in a BBC World Top Ten music poll.

* composed the music for Nayakan (1987), an Indian film ranked by TIME Magazine as one of the all-time 100 best movies.

Ah! That's where the Maestro jumps to Raga Shanmukhapriya. Till 2:23 it is
Raga Simhendramadhyamam - and both these are sampoorna ragas that is they
have all the 7 frequencies but differ only in the 7th note. Touch of pure
genius to highlight the transition that even Westerners can understand.
Truly a masterpiece for generations to come. What Oscars could possibly
honor the frequencies in Nature, that the beautiful mind of Isainyani has
captured for eternity? Eternal Ilayaraja.

The only music that can make you cry and smile, take you the depth of
oceans and the dizzying heights of mountains - Ilayaraja's music. Without
his music my life would have half lived. For once I thank god that I'm
blessed with the power to hear and that I'm born in India. Long live

Every time I hear this music its bring back memory of that classic movie by
Balu Mahenthira,s 'Veedu' one can compose music like Illayaraaja
...he is more than genius...

Author JaiSanaathanaDharma (5 years)
There is Simhendramadhyamam in the beginning when slow, Shanmukhapriya
later when it gets faster. There are other raga(s) too I think.

Hi all What a wonderful composition by the Great Maestro who uses more
instruments rather than electronics. Truly soulful music! He is not even
recognized by the Indian Government for his achievements. His BGM is
uncomparable.Those days we did not have this kind of communication
explosion,otherwise he would have gone places. The world needs to know
about him. Hats off to the great Maestro !

Author sx42007 (6 years)
Who can make such music other than ilayaraja!! See the pathos, ups and
downs in solo violin!! Karnatic ragas were fusioned by western symphonic
orchestration. This piece is going to stay for generations to come. Raja is
going to remain as another Beethoven on this planet.
