In between the notes a portrait of Pandit Pran Nath, master Indian musician ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pran Nath's teacher, Ustad Abdul Wahid Khan, who died in 1950, was the acknowledged master of the Kirana style in the 20th century, and through his performances on All India Radio, was chiefly responsible for making it the most influential and popular classical style of its time. Beginning in the late 1930s, Pran Nath too was hired to perform on All India Radio and quickly gained fame as the new young master of the style. After a long career in India, in 1970 Pran Nath met the American avant-garde composers Terry Riley and La Monte Young and Young's wife, the artist Marian Zazeela, who became his disciples. Mainly through their devotion and effort Pran Nath was able to begin a new career in the West as a musician and performer. Although In between the notes is a video portrait of a particular artist, its real subject is artistic integrity. Throughout his life Pandit Pran Nath has resisted every opportunity to advance his career commercially by acceding to the popular appetite for technical display, very common among audiences at concerts of Indian classical music, including vocal music. His work has always involved a search for purity of expression, finding the exact nuance of pitch and tonal quality, "in between the notes", to fit perfectly the mood and nature of the raga being performed".--Cover
