Book Description


Picture of famous composers, musicians, musicologists and patrons of music are published with shot notes in this book. Besides the Musical Trinity (Tyagaraja, Muthuswamy Dikshitar, Syama Sastri), twenty- seven luminaries inclusive of eminent composers, singers, instrumentalists, kathakas and patrons of music are presented in this volume. These pictures can be used by teachers of music in class rooms. Fuller accounts of the lumanaries figuring in this book can be seen in the author's book: Great Composers: Books I ⅈ Great Musicians; and Dictionary of South Indian Music and Musicians: Vols I&II."

It is an inspiration to look at the pictures of great men more so in the case of luminaries who have shed lustre on their country's music by their brilliant compositions.
