Professor V Lakshminarayana, in whose name this festival is conducted in India and around the world every year, was responsible for bringing the India violin to the international stage and introduced many masterful techniques. He was not only a great performer, but a great teacher as well, and has trained many great musicians. The Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival is now run by Dr L Subramaniam and Viji Global Arts, a registered charitable trust.
This volume begins with the inauguration of the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival in 1992 with a prayer song by Bharat Ratna Smt. M S Subbulakshmi. It also features an outstanding rendition by Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan.
