Sruti deeply mourns the passing away of veteran violin vidwan T.N.Krishnan. T.N. Krishnan, a child prodigy, learnt his art from his father Tripunitura Narayana Iyer, a martinet of a teacher. Born on October 6, 1928 into an illustrious family of musicians acclaimed in the Carnatic and Hindustani traditions of Indian classical music,Krishnan’s talent was burnished by long association with the great vocal masters of the era. He was known for his ability to present the most complex nuances of Carnatic music with disarming simplicity, and his strong bowing technique that produced ringing clarity and purity of sound.
