Trinity

A selection of renditions from the Trinity of Carnatic music.

This is a feature containing both well-known and less-known compositions of the trinity of Carnatic music composers - Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri, whose compositions have formed the bedrock of Carnatic music as we know it for the past two centuries and more. The three composers were contemporaries, they had their own distinct compositional styles, and the three complement one another in a remarkable manner. This feature allows us to appreciate the unique standpoints from which each of the three composers has created their masterpieces. This programme contains three compositions in the ragas Abhogi, Ramaamanohari (Ramapriya), and Kalyani.
