Remembering Legendary Sitar Maestro and Composer Bharat Ratna Pandit Ravi Shankar on his 100th Birth Anniversary (7 April 1920 ) Pandit Ravi Shankar (7 April 1920 – 11 December 2012 ), born Robindro Shaunkor Chowdhury was an Indian musician and composer who was one of the best-known exponents of the Sitar in the second half of the 20th century as a composer of Hindustani Classical Music. Shankar was born to a Bengali Brahmin family in Benares, British India, and spent his youth touring India and Europe with the dance group of his brother Uday Shankar. He gave up dancing in 1938 to study sitar playing under court musician Allauddin Khan. After finishing his studies in 1944, Shankar worked as a composer, creating the music for the Apu Trilogy by Satyajit Ray, and was music director of All India Radio, New Delhi, from 1949 to 1956. In 1956 he began to tour Europe and the Americas playing Indian classical music and increased its popularity there in the 1960s through teaching, performance, and his association with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and Beatles guitarist George Harrison. His influence on the latter helped popularize the use of Indian instruments in pop music throughout the 1960s. Shankar engaged Western music by writing compositions for sitar and orchestra, and toured the world in the 1970s and 1980s. From 1986 to 1992, he served as a nominated member of RajyaSabha, the upper chamber of the Parliament of India. He continued to perform up until the end of his life. In 1999, Shankar was awarded India's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna. Awards & Recognitions : Sangeet Natak Akademi Award(1962 ), Padma Bhushan(1967 ), Sangeet Natak Akademi Fellowship(1975 ), Padma Vibhushan(1981 ), Kalidas Samman from the Government of Madhya Pradesh for 1987–88, Bharat Ratna(1999 ), Ramon Magsaysay Award(1992 ), Commander of the Legion of Honour of France (2000 ), etc. On his Birth Anniversary, Swarveni Music Academy pays rich tributes to the legend. #swarveni #music #Indianmusic #raag #hindustani #hindustani_music #raga #thumri #bhajan #academy #taal #geet #sargam #gayak #gayaki #alaap #tabla #classicalmusic #Indianclassicalmusic #classical #baithak #riyaz #livemusic #live

according to my trusty barenreiter book of bach there two ways to play the fifth suite: with normal tuning or tuning the a string down to a g. i’ve never tried tuning down so i tried it today and it was really cool! i think i prefer the feel of this to the ‘normal’ tuning because the suite feels a lot more resonant. it’s a little confusing though, especially because i’m used to different fingerings. it’s like playing violin lol . . . #cello #cellist #celloplayer #cellomusic #cellolover #cellolife #cellistoftheworld #cellistoftheworld #violoncello #violin #viola #bass #bassclef #playhomieplay #practice #practicemakesbetter #practicemakesprogress #practicedaily #practicejournal #bach #cellosuites #classical #music #musician #classicalmusic #classicalmusician #classicalmusiclover #orchestra #symphony #musicianlife #practicepractice

Bach Chorale Number 14 (I think? ) . I found this sheet music in the back of my band folder having no idea what it sounded like. I also can't tell if I should be putting the sheets up, but Bach died around 300 years ago so I *think* it's public domain now...? . #bach #classical #classicalmusic #flute #clarinet #orchestra #chorale #bachchorales #woodwind #sheetmusic #baroque #baroquemusic

"She was savage and superb, wild-eyed and magnificent; there was something ominous and stately in her deliberate progress. And in the hush that had fallen suddenly upon the whole sorrowful land, the immense wilderness, the colossal body of the fecund and mysterious life seemed to look at her, pensive, as though it had been looking at the image of its own tenebrous and passionate soul."

"In the ruins of a temple of Ancient Rome" by Pierre Antoine de Machy, 1775. Like Hubert Robert, Machy was one of late 18th century France's great painters of ancient roman themes and landscapes, who revered the atmosphere of ruins and remnants of ancient Rome. In this masterpiece, Machy portrays the monumental halls of a former roman temple in monumentalistic classical style, together with the presence of several people, both explorers, tourists, as well as local farmers, who marvel at the sheer grandeur and might of the ruins. ~ ~ ~ #painting #paintings #paint #painting 🎨 #artwork #historypainting #peinture #peinturealhuile #paris #opulent #opulence #architecture #classical #neoclassicism #neoclassical #architecturelovers #masterpiece #painter #rome #ancientrome #ancient #roman #rome #temple #romanempire #antiquity #archigram #monument #monuments #ruins @westernorder @traditionalaesthetic   @cultureofelan @guildofgentlemen @deutsche .weltanschauung @artetvous   @the .kazakh.absolutist @heritage_artwork @ethnic_europa @anglo_tradition_

"You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consist of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life" - Albert Camus. This is not a typical Monday motivation quote but it gives me hope and power to actually go through the day 💪🏻 I am tired and overwhelmed by social media, the craziness around, people who believe in quarantine and those who don't. We are constantly put in the loop of trying to be happy/successful (even now ) but forgetting that we just need to live. So live your best today, do what makes you happy, if you don't want to practice - just don't, call your friends/family (or don't ), play video games as long as you want (or don't and read the book ), because it's OK to not work all the time and you don't need to feel bad about yourself. An if you want to work and use this time for self-improvement - that's great! If that makes you happy (like for real, real happy ), go for it! Just be you and LIVE 👸🏼
