Arranged by Kronos Quartet

Transcribed by Ljova


Ram Narayan is one of the world's most revered masters of the sarangi, the bowed string instrument from northern India renowned for its vocal expressiveness. Over the course of his long career, Narayan has been the person most responsible for bringing this ancient chordophone into the foreground of classical Hindustani music. Born in Udaipur, Rajasthan, Narayan grew up in a family of musicians, and began playing the sarangi as a child under his father's tutelage. He began his career as a music teacher in Udaipur at age 15, then moved to Delhi in 1947 to work as a staff player at All India Radio. Like most sarangi players of the era, he played as a vocal accompanist only; however, he soon realized the potential of the sarangi as a solo instrument and pushed to bring his performances into the spotlight—a practice that was unheard of at the time. He moved to Bombay two years later to play in the burgeoning film industry and slowly pave the way for a solo career. In the early 1950s his ragas were some of the first to be recorded on LPs produced in India, and by the end of the decade Narayan became widely acknowledged as a soloist. Since then, he has received numerous awards, including the Sangeet Natak Academy Award, the highest honor issued in India for dance, music, and theater. Many innovations made by Narayan to bowing and fingering techniques on the sarangi have now become standard.

Ram Narayan is known for his vivid interpretations of traditional Indian ragas. A specified combination of notes played and embellished within a parent framework called a thaat, each different raga has the power to evoke a unique emotional transcendence. This esthetic feeling was termed by music scholars as Rasavadhana: a mystic state completely unrelated to desire, which is purely compounded of joy and consciousness. This arrangement of Raga Mishra Bhairavi is based on a performance by Narayan, recorded in 1989.

The Kronos Quartet's arrangement of Raga Mishra Bhairavi by Ram Narayan was commissioned for Kronos by Deborah and Creig Hoyt in memory of Raymond Frase.
