Mysore Vasudevacharya

An hour of creations of one of the major 20th century composers.

Mysore Vasudevacharya was a towering musical personality, tracing his musical lineage to Tyagaraja through Manambuchavadi Venkatasubbayyar and Patnam Subramania Iyer. He was a prolific composer, with more than 200 compositions which include pada varnas, tana varnas, kritis, javalis, tillanas and ragamalikas. His compositions are written mostly in Telugu and Sanskrit. Vasudevacharya's lyrical Telugu used in his kritis is more chaste than that of composers of his time. On this feature, you will hear some rare compositions of Mysore Vasudevacharya.
