Kadri Gopalnath

Music by the saxophone maestro in connection with his birthday on December 6.

Kadri Gopalnath pioneered the use of the saxophone in Carnatic music. With his modifications to the instrument to suit Carnatic music, and also his vibrant style of playing, Gopalnath has built up a large following for himself and for the saxophone. He has also participated in the Jazz Festival in Prague, the Berlin Jazz Festival, the International Cervantino Festival in Mexico, the Music Hall Festival in Paris, and the BBC Promenade concert in 1994 at London. His production, called 'East-West', is an audio-video presentation that is a fusion of Western and Indian music with compositions of Tyagaraja and Beethoven.
