Classical musical instruments
Rarely do we come across books on musical instruments. And one covering the whole gamut of Indian Classical musical instruments is practically unheard of. This book by Dr. Suneera Kasliwal covers almost all instruments in vogue in the classical music scenerio of southern and northern India. Apart from delving deep into the history and evaluation of each of these instruments , this well researched book deals with their structural and manufacturing details and the basic techniques of sound production. Beautifully illustrated, this book is recommended for all those who have genuine interest in Indian Classical music and instruments.
