Marking 70 years of India’s Independence, violin icon Dr L Subramaniam presents his new work, the Bharat Symphony in concert with the London Symphony Orchestra.
The work symbolizes the four major periods of Indian heritage: the Prehistoric Vedic period; the Mughal period; the British period and finally, the post-Independence modern period.
Incorporating melodic chants from Rigveda, 5000 year old sacred Sanskrit texts and Hindustani instruments, the work is an elegant tapestry of Indian culture, with the fourth movement symbolizing the post-independence period, tracing global influences over the last 70 years. Subramanium and the LSO are joined by an eight-member Indian ensemble, including some of India’s most celebrated artists.
