DOUBLE VIOLIN

Radhakrishna plays the rare, creative and unique ten string, stereoscopic DOUBLE VIOLIN, the only one of its kind in Asia among a handful in the world.


His version of “nouveau” DOUBLE VIOLIN is a recent addition to the world of string instruments. Incorporating the range of violin, viola, cello and double bass, it showcases that music transcends the barriers of time and has a unique, universal appeal. He has disproved the dictum that “east is east and west is west and never the twain shall meet” by his impeccable style where he harmoniously blends the orient and the occident. A trend-setter, he has done India proud by being the only Asian to possess the rare DOUBLE VIOLIN.

Radhakrishna has the unique honour of being the only artiste to play solo on the creative DOUBLE VIOLIN at the prestigious Thyagaraja Aradana festival held at Thiruvaiyaru on 9-01-2007 for the first time in the annals of the festival.

He was privileged to play the DOUBLEVIOLIN teaming up with mrudangam maestro Umayalpuram Sivaraman in the divine presence of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba at the Athi Rudra Maha Yagnam conducted at Chennai on 22-01-2007 which was telecast live.
