This past Saturday night, October 10th, 2009, I attended my very first Indian Classical Music concert. It was Ravi Shankar and Anoushka at Carnegie Hall. For me, it was a great night of music in a beautiful venue, and was a giant leap in my humble journey.

The fact that it was a sold out show, at such a large venue, leads me to think that the chances that someone may have recorded it are pretty good. If someone could lead me in the right direction towards finding a copy of this show, please PM me. I do not have any interests in distributing it to anyone. I just want to have a sonic scrapbook of my first time. I would really love to be able to have an mp3 or a CD of the show.

Thanks.

Glad to hear someone else was at that concert. I especially enjoyed the Chaurukeshi (second raga)- time completely stopped!

Anyway, glad to hear you enjoyed your concert. Actually experiencing the music live is a very different thing than listening to a recording. I will be seeing Panditji next month in Santa Barbara and am looking forward to it.

How did you enjoy the Shahid Parvez concert, by the way? I'm sure it was amazing.

To tell you the truth, I am without words, at this point. It was such an intense experience, that I was dreaming about it while I slept last night. I am still in shock/afterglow mode. The whole weekend was fantastic. I am very luck/gratefull to have taken part in both events.

I am not qualified to give a review of either show. So, I won't even attempt to. I will say this. I enjoyed myself. BIG TIME!

PS- there is a recording of bageshree from last nites show at:

http://www.mininova.org/tor/3039372

you need to use bit torrent to get it, and a Flac program to decompress it. maybe someone on the forum can upload it to another site that more people here are familiar with. its a decent recording, and will suffice until an official release comes in the future. it was purposely not made to be stellar, to not complete with any official release, whenever that may be.

I doubt anybody recorded visual, I had a great view of the lower part of the hall and i did not see one single lcd screen. My friend got me in for free (she works at Carnegie) and even took us backstage. She also mentioned that they took away someone's camera and the person had to collect it back after the show. Needless to say, amazing show and I'd love to have a dvd of the event, maybe on one of the tour's venus they will do it.
Also, for the ones that missed NY show, there'll be a Newark, NJ show soon, check http://www.RaviShankar.org for info.

Cheers.

I had a floor seat (about 20 rows back), and you're right, no cameras. One thing that I really can't stand these days, is going to a concert, and having to look at a hundred camera screens in front of me. I try to buy seats that are as close to the stage as possible. I pay good money for good seats. I shouldn't have to stare at someone's cell phone screen tha whole time. Thankfully, people at these shows have respect for the artists and the venue. I don't think I'll ever go to a rock concert again, now. LOL!

Also, just to add to what KC said, there are still a ton of good seats left for the Newark show. I scored a third row seat yesterday morning, for a reasonable price too. Much cheaper than the Carnegie Hall show. The show is going to be held at Prudential hall at NJPAC. From pictures, it looks like a very nice venue. It is the home of The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Should be another great night.

the format is FLAC, a lossless compression. google Flac and download a flac program, very easy to use

Here are the files (split due to up-load limit):

http://rapidshare.com/files/293533289/parvez.part01.sitx

http://rapidshare.com/files/293661573/parvez.part02.sitx

If you are a Windows person, you will need Stuffit Expander to unpack them into one file.

If you don't already have it, I recommend VLC for playing .flac files. It plays pretty much anything and it's free!

A good Windows-based program for burning .flac files to CD is Burnatonce.

Thanks again to Mike for the upload.

lol, bootleg is such an ugly word...but im happy you enjoyed the performances. You picked one helluva artist(s) to make your first concert experience.

Its funny, sitar recordings are amazing and awesome, but the live performance gives so much more than a recording EVER could. Even the simplest techniques looks/sounds amazing.
