Vilayat Khan & Bismillah Khan - Duets From India - ST 10483

Ustad Bismillah Khan
Ustad Bismillah Khan (Urdu: استاد بسم اللہ خان صاحب‎; March 21, 1916 – August 21, 2006) was an Indian shehnai maestro. He was the third classical musician to be awarded the Bharat Ratna (in 2001), the highest civilian honour in India and gained worldwide acclaim for playing the shehnai for more than eight decades.
Vilayat Khan
Ustad Vilayat Khan (Bengali: বিলায়েত খাঁ Bilaeet Khã; August 28, 1928 –March 13, 2004) was one of India's well known sitar maestros. He recorded his first 78-RPM disc at the age of 8, and gave his last concert in 2004 at the age of 75.
Vilayat Khan was born in Gauripur, British India to Enayat Khan, a sitar maestro. His family of musicians trace their pedigree back to the court musicians of the Mughals. His father, recognised as a leading sitar and surbahar (bass sitar) player of his time, as had been the grandfather, Imdad Khan, before him. He was taught in the family style, known as the Imdadkhani Gharana or Etawah Gharana, after a village outside Agra where Imdad Khan lived.

Side One (Duetto Jugalbandi)
  • Raga : Gujaree - Todi
Both Ustad Vilayat Khan and Ustad Bismillah Khan handle their respective instruments with dexterity and skill to bring out all of the serenity and pathos of this Raga. During the first few minutes, with the help of short "alaps" they lay a foundation for the Raga and gradually unfold a vivid synthesis of harmony and the melody. The subtle "Taan" patterns (note combinations) used to embellish this performance demonstrate the performers artistic mastery.
Side Two
  • Raga Chaiti - Dhun

Here is typically lilting flok tune of India's Uttar Pradesh region. It is immensely popular with audiences and draws its name "Chaiti" from "Chaitra," which is the first month of the Hindu calendar and the month during which it is most frequently performend.

  • Raga Bhairavee-Thumree

This short but sweet work can be played at any time of the day or night.

Convention, however, holds that Raga Bhairavee be performed at the end of every musical performance. The "Gat" composition has for its mood the "Shringara Ras" (Love) and hence and atmosphere of romance is heard throughout. Both artists give memorably zestful performances, adorning their artistry with delicate touches of highly imaginative and skillful flourishes. The result is a compelling composition which remains in the heart long after the music has faded away.
