This four-raga selection of Ravi Shankar's work could easily have been entitled "A Guide to Indian Sitar Music. These four ragas cover the gamut of Shankar's many stylistic tendencies on the instrument, and they also illustrate the various mannerisms in which Indian classical melodies are architected and established within a raga. Here the various sections are discussed in the liner notes and are readily discernible for anyone interested. That said, each of the four selections here represents a different time of the day and a different mood setting

After several listens, the subtle beauty of Raga Malkauns: Alap almost pulls you into a trance, while the Jor speeds up slightly at the end to create a masterful combination. The Tala Sawari and Pahari Dhun are both livelier pieces, especially Pahari Dhun, which is based on folk melodies of India.
