Lakshminarayana Subramaniam

Lakshminarayana Subramaniam 

When: Fri., Sept. 18 2015




Want to know exactly how synonymous the south Indian violinist Lakshminarayana Subramaniam is with his instrument? Simply type "" into your web browser, and you'll soon find that the 68-year-old champion of the evocative and bewitching Carnatic musical tradition rightfully controls that domain. During the last several decades, Subramaniam has emerged as one of the world's great instrumentalists, using his four strings to create small worlds of sound. Above the moderate accompaniment of Indian hand drums and a steadfast drone, Subramaniam allows a modest coterie of notes to bleed into and out of one another in tiny intervals. He creates an uninterrupted musical thought that leads listeners to follow and chase the sound around the mix, like a pet in pursuit of a prized toy. During his career, Subramaniam has collaborated with Western musicians and written in symphonic configurations, too. But hearing him delight in the music of his youth and region remains a real thrill and a transfixing experience. 8 p.m., $10$34, 1336 Campus Drive, Durham, 919-684-4444, —Grayson Haver Currin
