      This is a beautiful album...

      This is a beautiful album worth every rupee you spend on it. I specially wanted to hear Fur Elise and it's played differently, unique, a pleasure to listen to. But I loved all the other pieces as well....They are not just a copy to copy of Western music, nor are they so freakily 'different' that they make no sense, instead there is the individual input and interpretation by the Indian musician resulting in a delicious collection. Buy it!

      A brilliant effort. A must for western classical enthusiasts.

      I never imagined I would listen to mozart's symphonies in veena and sitar. This is a great work of fusion by various artists that gives 'classical' a rare sense of maturity and sensibility. While each piece is performed on various instruments as a center piece, it also successfully blends a common sound throughout the album. Totally loved it.

      The Best Fusion Experience Ever

      Does full justice to the magnificence and genius of Western classical. The titles chosen leave nothing to be desired and the improvisation using Indian instruments blends so seamlessly and exquisitely that it almost creates a new genre. It also makes the central piece of the original title stand out in all its brilliance. This album has the potential to make you appreciate the beauty of both Western and Indian classical even if you have not been able to do so before.
