Post by jvenumadhav »

Can anyone please let me know the feedback on T.K.Govinda Rao books on the compositions Tyagaraja, Dikshitar, Shyama Shastri and Svati Tirunal etc.. I would like to know especially about clarity and readability of notation, and any other feedback would help.

Regards,

In an article here: https://www.thehindu.com/features/frida ... 025726.ece
Lalithaa Srinivasan writes:

Among TKG’s greatest achievements was the compilation and publication of Trinity compositions, impeccably notated, complemented by meanings of the lyrics, in English. Collecting over 600 compositions of all Haridasas including Purandaradasa, he tuned them in catchy, evergreen melodies that were tailor-made for the sahitya.
Does anyone know if the book on Hasridasas' compositions is in print? Thanks.
