USTAD SHAHID PARVEZ – “Magnificent Melody” |
INDIA – North Indian classical; a complete raga plus a dhun (instrumental transposition of a song) from a nephew of the late great Vilayat Khan, joined by Anindo Chatterjee on tabla. I know it’s hard to give up a whole hour to a single track, but if you have that extra hour, Raga Darbari won’t disappoint. The rest of us will find plenty of satisfaction in track 2.
1. 58:32 – Well-known night raga: slow solo sitar, light but sharp, carefully builds the structure for 18 minutes. Then a series of stately themes emerge, gradually growing faster and more complex. By the 27-minute mark it’s pretty exciting; tabla comes in at about 29 minutes (right at the halfway mark). Marvelous interplay for another 20 minutes, then starts to build up to the big finale: tabla gets fast and furious in the last few minutes.
2. 10:13 – all the same basic steps as track 1, only compressed into 10 minutes: solo sitar for 2:30, very fine sitar/tabla interplay from then on. Gets faster & aggressive in final 2 minutes
