About this Item

A number of artistic trends derived from the Arabo Persian tradition contributed to the richness of music in medieval India. The first volume of of Nur Ratnakar offers a compendium of sources on the early manifestations of this cross cultural phenomenon from the end of the tenth century to the end of the fourteenth a key period in the development of Indian music especially court music. Some of the important Arabic and Persian sources examined in the first volume of this bio biographical survey highlight diverse but complementary aspects of the art music of India. Shahab Sarmadee's selections from texts of various literary genres (such as musicological texts historical chronicles poetry and ornate prose memoirs and other personal writings) document the history theory and practice as well as the aesthetics of music often in its traditional Indian definition which includes dance and occasionally drama. Since music is considered a science and a branch of knowledge in the Arabo Persian civilization classical treatises in Arabic stress the importance of the musical and consonantal ratio. Celebrated texts even when they do not refer to Indian music provide deep insights into the mathematical structure of music in medieval India. Besides treatises in Arabic and Persian on the theory of music and historical chronicles highlighting the eminence of this art important musicological treatises and poetical works relevant to music written in Sanskrit during the period under consideration are included in the survey. Knowledge of music was a prerequisite for a sophisticated ruler hence the aristocratic patronage to music and musicians throughout the Islamic world. In India from the Sultanate period onwards many Indo Islamic rulers encouraged music and dance of both Persian and Indian origin with a view to promoting the interaction between Persian and Indian culture. 651 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 52523
