Nikhil Banerjee au Musée Guimet 1974-1984



C'était le temps des Amis de l'Orient, association un peu guindée qui organisait des voyages en Indes mais aussi (surtout)des concerts de musique à l'auditorium du Musée Guimet. Un des hôtes réguliers était le sitariste Nikhil Banerjee. Il venait une voire deux fois par an pour faire des concerts et pour graver des disques, les LP's de Sonodisc, devenus assez rares et recherchés aujourd'hui. Un certain nombre des enregistrements ont commencé à circuler sur le net, une chose dont je suis très probablement à l'origine sans l'avoir cherché. Il était donc temps de mettre de l'ordre dans tout cela. J'ai sorti les vieilles cassettes du placard pour en faire des numérisations plus propres que les copies des copies des copies qui sont maintenant proposées. Voici le programme:

4/11/74: Marubihag/ Gara (avec Anand Bodas)

Merci Hans pour ces liens précieux !
En voici un autre qui ne manquera pas d'intéresser les sitaristes et plus généralement les amateurs de « meend-s liquides »: Balaram Pathak en pleine possession de ses moyens.

Hans, thank you so much for the recordings. A quick question: the folder name Guimet13nov75 doesn't match the date in your post. Which is correct?

Ritadhi a dit…

Thanks a lot Hans for these fantastic recordings. The Lalita Gauri and the Gara in particular is unbelievable.

Prithviraj a dit…

Many thanks Hans, for uploading the recordings of the 1978 concert. Our bad luck that the complete Piloo is unavailable. Did NB also play Pancham se Gara after the Piloo, as your original announcement at the chandrakantha.com forum suggests?

Thanks again for your kind effort.

To be honest, I had written on the original tape Sur Malhar, Pilu and Pancham se gara. I really can't remember what happened during the concert: no more tape probably. Anyway, it may be on one of the other tapes with the concerts I haven't digitalized yet. I'll try to get it. Thanks for the encouragements.

A bonus kafi from the '79 set! Many thanks!! :-)

Prithviraj a dit…

Jhinjhoti! Finally!!

Bravo, Hans! Many thanks. :-)

Ajay a dit…

Thanks Hans, yes Jhinjhoti finally, thank you very much, and thanks for all the uploads at Orkut too.

Bosmart a dit…

Voilà, la liste est complète cette fois ci. A noter; le raag Pancham se Gara est rajouté au dossier de 78.
(Pancham se Gara has been added on the 1978 file making the list complete and definitive)

Prithviraj a dit…

Superb effort, Hans. Bahut, bahut dhanyavad!

ragamala a dit…

Indeed, Hans, many thanks. You have given many of us something special to look forward to every weekend over the last couple of months.

I hope the work brought back to you some fond memories.

Hello Hans,

I find it intriguing and wonderful that I study Bresson and Godard in India and you listen to Vilayat Khan and Nikhil Banerjee in France.

Ajay a dit…

Thanks Hans for outstanding work. Yesterday I listened your Nikhilda's Kaunsi Kanada, and it gave me tremendous peace, I prayed to God to give same peace to divine soul of Nikhilda' and to you too for this classics...

Greetings & Happy New Year! A colleague & fellow Indian Music lover just forwarded your site & I was somewhat chagrined to see an unauthorized, uncredited use of my photograph of late Pandit Nikhil Banerjee.
I would appreciate either receiving a credit byline OR please remove the photo & replace it with another, not of my authorship.
Thank you, Ira Landgarten/Producer Raga Records, New York, USA

Hope this new picture makes you feel less chagrined!

Raga Raga a dit…

Thanks a lot for posting these superb archives.
By chance do you have recordings of 1980, 1981, 1982 also?

Bosmart a dit…

@Raga Raga: Sorry, no other concerts at Guimet on the shelves. Some others though! Will post them in time.

Raga Raga a dit…

Thank you for your reply.....ya please post those other concerts......that would be really great :) ... And thank you very very much again for posting these outstanding gems by the maestro...
