„I find nothing more inspiring than the music making of my very great colleague Subramaniam. Each time I listen to him, I am carried away in wonderment,” - Yehudi Menuhin.
Dr. Lakshminarayana Subramaniamot is often referred to as both the Paganini of Indian classical music and the Indian god of the violin. One thing is for sure, his personality is the combination of the intense focus of an Indian musician and the draw of a star of the western world. His remarkable popularity is testament to the richness and openness of his art, allied to his ability to retain his roots while establishing a strong foothold in the traditions of European music. This has allowed Subramaniam to fashion a unique musical style that can draw in audiences from all corners of the earth.
Over the years, Subramaniam has established an extremely broad and stylistically rich repertoire. He has performed with and without an orchestra, composed film scores – playing as soloist for the Bertolucci film Little Buddha – and collaborated with the world's best known musicians, be they specialists in classical or jazz music or the cultures of the Far East. He, like his father before him, is a respected master of the classical traditions of the Karnataka region of southern India. In addition, the violin virtuoso has, for instance, played with such giants as Yehudi Menuhin, Stéphane Grappelli, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Al Jarreau and Jean Luc Ponty. His compositions represent milestones in music, such as the Double Concerto for violin and flute with its unique use of micro intervals, Spring – Rhapsody, a homage to Bach and baroque music, or the Fantasy on Vedic Chants, premièred by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta.
