I guess I don't need to introduce this legendary Indian Mandolin Player called 'U. Shrinivas' who had single handily rose the fame to Mandolin Instrument among the Indian Classical instruments. IMO, Mandolin never would have got so much attention among the Indian music followers without the efforts of this great musician. Sadly, this great musician passed away on 19th September 2014, just at the age of 45 due to the complications arose in his liver transplantation.
'Galant pleasures' seems an apt description for this release, which presents a charming selection of works written for the mandolin in 18th-century Paris. Indeed, it was around this time that a number of plucked instruments came into vogue, and the mandolin in particular found great success among the nobility and middle classes, taking part in an atmosphere of intellect and refinement that prompted a new artistic direction in music of the period, revolutionising audiences' tastes and sensibilities along the way.
