Rajeev Taranath in Concert
Cowell Theater — Oct 14th
Internationally acclaimed performer, Rajeev Taranath is one of the world's leading exponents of the Sarod. A distinguished disciple of Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, his performances masterfully combine the depth and rigor of the tradition of Hindustani classical music with an inspired imagination and emotional intensity.
Hailed a prodigy in Hindustani vocal music, he was trained by his father Pandit Taranath and other eminent musicians and was a concert and radio artist before he was 20. Rajeev has toured extensively as a performer in India, Australia, Europe, Yemen, and throughout the US. He has also composed music for several nationally and internationally honored Indian films and has received a number of awards for his work.
Taranath's distinctive musicianship demonstrates striking imaginative power, technical excellence, and emotional range. He is respected for the clarity of musical understanding which he brings to the unfolding of a raga and the beauty of the tone he evokes from the sarod.
Joining Taranath on tabla for this performance will be long time collaborator and brilliant percussionist Abhiman Kaushal. Mr. Kaushal is a sought-after concert accompanist and soloist and is presently on the faculty at UCLA.
