Kulturelle Begegnung: Indien!

GSO-CMM-Srinivasan

What a wonderful and inspiring evening! Tabla player Ravi Srinivasan, Kathak dancer Ioanna Srinivasan, and sitar player Michael Dreyer joined us for a unusual yet mesmerizing program: Halvorsen Vasantasena Suite for Orchestra (a real discovery in itself), a Sargam (for tabla, sitar and dance), Naresh Sohal’s modern Hexad Suite for ensemble, two fun pieces by Ravi Srinivasan for ensemble and tabla, a Johann Strauss Polka “Die Bajadere” (indian dance girls), and Rahman’s “Slumdog Millionaire” Suite for Orchestra, with added tabla and sitar…
And the numerous audience didn’t think for a moment about soccer…:)
