Hi everyone !
Just a little note to announce the publication of a new book by Dr Patrick Moutal (sitarist, prof. at the Paris Conservatoire):

Hindustani Gata-s Compilation: Instrumental themes in north Indian classical music
ISBN 9782954124414 (€28 + shipping)

The books contains 454 themes on 164 ragas. They come from Pt Lalmani Misra, Dr K.C. Gangrade and other great instrumentalists. You can read extracts at http://www.moutal.eu (the book is available directly from the author). Take a look at it!

I wish you all a nice week end and happy Easter!

Is this Moutal that's posting?
I've just ordered mine, glad to see he's put something out in English after the Comparative Studies of Hindustani Ragas went out of print. Looking forward to it and thanks for posting!

Lars

Hi Lars!
I'm not Moutal :-) I'm a former student of Patrick at the conservatoire.
Hope you'll enjoy your copy! Tell us more when you get it...
Have a nice week end,
Sophie

Hi Sophie,
Ok, great well thanks for your updates and I heard from the man himself today. Very excited to see this and would like to say to everyone here that Dr. Moutal has a wealth of knowledge and please help support his efforts by buying his book. It's the next best thing to having an English translation of Bhatkandes works which I keep hoping to see someday.

Lars
