About this album

This concert performance was recorded on January 2003, at the Saptak Festival in Gujarat, India, where HariPrasad Chaurasia has been a regular performer since this annual musical celebration began some twenty five years ago.

He begins his recital with Raga Jaijavanti, an evening melody which has been a great favourite of many vocal masters of the past including Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. For Indian classical music instrumentalists, vocal music is an important reference point; the phrases played are articulated as if sung. The mood of the raga is melancholic and romantic, its complex structure placing great technical demands on the performer, making it a raga that can be approached by only the more seasoned Indian musicians.
