Iyer-Subramanium-Iyer (Oriental Records 2xLP *1983, BGRP 1027. 1028)

‘As we bring about this recording we understand that Sri Alathur Srinivasa Iyer has attained “Videhamukti” – salvation attained by the realized soul after shaking off the physical sheath. He was one of the few musicians who had realized the truth of life through his devotion to classical Carnatic music. Oriental Records is indeed proud and priviledged to present to connoisseurs the one and only long-playing recording of this great Maestro…

...Dr. L. Subramanium, whose concert career commenced at the age of ten, is today, although only in his early thirties, recognized as “Violin Chakravarthi” (Emporer of the Universe of the Violin), a title conferred on him by the Governor of Madras….

Palghat T.S. Mani Iyer, a Maestro non pareil on the Mridangam, is a disciple of Tanjore Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar. Recognized as India’s greatest living percussionist, he started playing the Mridangam from the age of seven. He is the acknowledged Grand Master of this authentic Indian instrument, to which he has devoted his life….’(from the liner notes)

1983 double LP from three deeply heralded legends of the Carnatic classical world. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.

Happy to find this record rip. I heard a song off of this on soundcloud and it particularly struck a chord with me as I am also a violinist (far inferior). Thanks a lot for what you do. I will look for a way to donate.
