He first played for us as a young boy and was self-assured even then. He catches on very quickly even with rarely heard Hindustani ragas like Basant BahAr, Haricharan and DeepAli and maintains the energy of the concert. His rapid-fire repartees evoke the great maestro Lalgudi Jayaraman.
He is an excellent violinist on whom the music world has great expectations
Vittal exudes a very pleasant demeanor on stage. His razor-sharp intellect allows him to respond instantly to any challenge in his own inimitable way in an exquisitely beautiful form. His conception of the raga is so unique and original, without transgressing the Carnatic idiom, that it inspires me and expands my own horizons of musical thought.
