Overview: An Incurable Romantic

Lalgudi Jayaraman is one of the greatest geniuses in Carnatic music. His name enjoys a global following as does his musical style, which is named after him. Now Lakshmi Devanath unearths the inner details of his life in this definitive biography.

An Incurable Romantic: The Incredible Journey of Lalgudi Jayaraman portrays the life of its subject with a mix of objective balance of basic facts of background, upbringing and education with a more subjective look at his art and the details behind his innovative and original music style. The Lalgudi Bani musical style is charted out in full depth, from early beginnings to an experimental stage to late style. The manner in which Jayaraman used the violin as a vehicle for his craft, and the way in which this distinctive western instrument was completely bent to Carnatic music in the Indian musical tradition is an astonishing story and the source of Jayaraman�s national prestige and international renown.

An Incurable Romantic as the title mentioned, also attempts to penetrate the inner nature of the artist. Artists are enigmatic by default and Jayaraman was no different. Lakshmi Devanath employs a range of explanations for the source of his greatness. Was it his family of musicians of several generations? The role played by his mother and wife in supporting and nurturing his talent? or was it a deeper mysterious yearning that only comes out through the music?

Lakshmi Devanath�s An Incurable Romantic: The Incredible Journey of Lalgudi Jayaraman is a brilliant biography that comprises anecdote, research and first-hand interviews with the subject. Jayaraman passed away in 2013 but not before giving the book and his author, his blessings. Lakshmi Devanath is a respected scholar in the field of Carnatic Music and is a trained musician in her own right. She is the author of Poorva - Magic Miracles and the Mystical Twelve and Pictures of Melody, a picture book on Indian music that was praised by former President APJ Abdul Kalam. This paperback book is listed online with the ISBN-10 number of 9350291886 and the ISBN-13 Number of 978-9350291887.
