B N Suresh

A tribute to a flautist of rare ability, in connection with his birth anniversary on January 7.

B N Suresh was born in 1946. He was a child prodigy, and none other than flute legend T R Mahalingam recognised his talent. The tonal quality of Suresh's flute and his ability to vocalise the lyrics on the flute gave an edge to his style. He made a niche for himself in the field very soon and many of his senior contemporaries like Lalgudi Jayaraman, M S Gopalakrishnan and Umayalpuram Sivaraman provided accompaniment to his concerts. B N Suresh passed away in the year 1990, at the age of just 44.
