View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Kumar Prasad Mukherji’s elegy to a vanishing age of musical giants comprises many shared experiences between performer and audience, and between recital and applause. It is his salute to a world receding into the shadows of history peopled by ustads, pandits, the rich and the famous, and the sacred and the profane. He traces the origins of their schools from folk traditions to the courts of ancient emperors. He points to the time when notation crept into classical music, resulting in the preservation of ragas that would otherwise have been lost to time.
