Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar

A programme on the architect of the concert format in connection with his death anniversary on January 23.

Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar was one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. His concert had all the required ingredients in the right proportions, and his laya and kalapramana were impeccable. As another musical stalwart, G N Balasubramaniam, put it, "Sri Ariyakudi's music is the touchstone on which we can judge the standard of the music of others, probably because it is in the truest and basic traditions of our classical music."
