|Jyotsna Srikanth||Carnatic violin|
Violinist Jyotsna Srikanth explores Time in South Indian music. The first half of this concert, with mridangam and ghatam percussion, is a whirlwind historical sketch featuring composers from the 15th to the 20th century in several different rhythmic cycles. The second half features the London premiere of her own Raga Seasons violin concerto performed with the Ligeti Quartet – depicting the six seasons of the Hindu calendar.
As part of Kings Place’s year-long Time Unwrapped series, two Songlines Encounters concerts examine the concept of Time in Indian music. Times of the day, times of the year, times in history and different rhythmical cycles as well. With some helpful explanations along the way, a rare chance to unravel the many ways in which time exerts its power over the subcontinent’s classical music.
‘Jyotsna Srikanth is an extraordinary and versatile violinist… free-flowing, often mesmerising’ Guardian
