Sitar Recital by
Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan
The inimitable tone and keen artistic genius are characteristic of Shahid Ji’s performances. The power of his music transcends our souls into a state of silence and peace.
The delicate notes of the famous raag Bageshree, a night raga, show deep emotions. First sung by Miyan Tansen in the sixteenth century, raga Bageshree still enchants musicians and connoisseurs alike due to its pleasing melody and profound emotional expressions. Shahid Ji presents the aesthetics of this popular raga. The greatness of Shahid Ji’s performance is his characteristic style showcasing both the technical finesse and gaayaki baaj. Enjoy the initial alaap jod jhala and drut in Rupak taal followed by Gat in drut Teen taal.
In the second part of the concert, Shahid Ji performs Raag Shyam Kalyan.
You don’t want to miss how these great artists interact with each other during this concert. The immensity of their passion for music and their respect and understanding for each other marks the on-stage chemistry between these great artists. Rare magic unfolds when such stalwarts grace the stage.
Pandit Anindo Chatterjee’s sophisticated tabla accompaniment is beyond words. You cannot miss the distinctive soft, precise touch and fast rhythmic movements.
The credit for the pristine sound from this concert, audio recording, and mixing goes to a Grammy-winning recording engineer, Joe Branciforte. Joe is multitalented and wears many hats as a musician, composer, and record producer.
