#1 Videos of Great Violinists

Post by SrinathK » 20 Dec 2015, 22:41

I've heard it once too often the other day, that we've done a poor job of video archiving the playing of our greatest violinists when they were at their peak.

Therefore in this thread, we are going to share whatever videos we've got of our violinists that are out there and hope that what does remain shall be useful to rasikas and music students.

With a sincere request that this thread not turn into a space for the sort of stuff that will turn music students & lovers away...

We'll start with a video of Lalgudi Jayaraman playing Ada Modi Galade

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_TC6rORbug - Part I
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVYJj0jxGlg - Part II

The video offers enough, but could have easily offered much more had the cameraman not blotted out the lower part of the violin (and almost all the left hand work) while focusing on LGJ.

An interview with LGJ

One regret would be here that there are not so many videos of LGJ before the 1980s, when he was at the peak of his capabilities.

The Violin-videos bringing out more details of the left-hand-finger-techniques help the violin-aspirants a lot. Fortunately, such video, in which Vidwan VVSubrahmanyam Sir had played ‘A string of Ragas and a teaser (https://youtu.be/psD7gj6zBa0)’ in a Lec-dem by the initiation of Dr. Lakshmi Sreeram.

Even though this was meant for some other purpose, now, this truly helps the poor Violin-aspirants a lot, being the only video of its kind, and we all must thank Dr. Lakshmi Sreeram in this respect. amsharma
