Dr. L. Subramaniam
World-renowned violin icon from India, Dr. L. Subramaniam, often referred to as “the Paganini of Indian classical music”, combines the serenity of an Indian musician with the magnetism of a Western rockstar. He began his career as a child-prodigy, performed with the world’s greatest musicians and soon became known as a master of the violin. Dr. Subramaniam has produced, performed, collaborated and conducted around two hundred recordings.
Dr. Subramaniam, founder/director of the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival, the biggest global music festival in India, has performed/recorded Carnatic classical music, Western classical, both orchestral and non-orchestral, composed for and conducted major orchestras, scored for films and ballets, and collaborated with a wide range of some of the world’s greatest musicians from different musical genres. He was musical advisor to Peter Brook for his “Mahabharata”; he composed music for films that include Salaam Bombay and Mississippi Masala and was the featured soloist for Bernardo Bertolucci’s Little Buddha and Merchant–Ivory Productions’ Cotton Mary. He has also composed for the world’s greatest orchestras which include the New York Philharmonic, Zubin Mehta (Fantasy on Vedic Chants), the Kirov Ballet and the Berlin Opera.
