doo-dah, doo-dah dancing

I just might try something if I can get my terrible recording set-up tamed. 

Stay tuned.

Oliver! you would be surprised to know that Violin was introduced to Carnatic music only about 200 years ago as fiddle.

 

I think Jim(Worldfiddler) is taking lessons from Karthik.

 

Deemajor, I would like to know why you have chosen this name for the forum?  I have been holding this question from your first post.

Suresh     Was there a similar instrument before the violin that played that music?  Surely there have been bowed instruments in India for a long time.

I'm really curious about the influence of Indian music on music in other parts of the world.

I'm afraid that classical Western music typically sounds a bit sterile to me.  However I could listen to the small groups of Mozart and Handel all day smile

Suresh, I think I chose the name because I was into practicing some D major scales at the time.

Was that a recorder? I mean, seriously it's an orchestra instrument? I always thought about it like the cheap $5 flute they give all primary-schooler to learn music lol. Heck I still have mine (Yamaha is solid).

Hi Noir Velours!  Yes there is a recorder being played and it is an orchestra instrument.

Hi DeeMajor!  The following is from Wikipedia.

D major (or the key of D) is a major scale based on D, consisting of the pitches DEF♯GAB, and C♯. Its key signature consists of two sharps. Its relative minor is B minor and its parallel minor is D minor.

D major is well-suited to violin music because of the structure of the instrument, which is tuned G D A E. The open strings resonate sympathetically with the D string, producing a sound that is especially brilliaant.

It is thus no coincidence that many classical composers throughout the centuries have chosen to write violin concertos in D major, including those by Mozart (No. 2, 1775No. 4, 1775); Ludwig van Beethoven (1806); Paganini (No. 1, 1817); Brahms (1878); Tchaikovsky (1878);Prokofiev (No. 1, 1917); Stravinsky (1931); and Korngold (1945).

....

It is appropriate for guitar music, with drop D tuning making two Ds available as open strings.

I thought it is for these reasons you chose your name.

Hi Oliver!  I am at the other side.. having listened to lots of carnatic music, instrumental and vocal.

Ok. Today's flavor is Hindustani Classical(North Indian) and it is Chaurasia playing the  flute.

On display is some of the instruments, sitar, santoor, sarangi, violin, viola, veena and flute,besides voices by Pandit Bhim Sen Joshi and Dr. Balamuralikrishna who plays the viola also.  The first 3 instruments are used only in North Indian Hindustani music while violin and flute are played in both Hindustani and south Indian carnatic music. Also various dance forms of India are on show. Hope you will like this in the Raag Desh.
