Dr. Lakshminarayana Subramaniam (born on 23 July 1947) is an acclaimed Indian violinist, composer and conductor, trained in the classical Carnatic music tradition and Western classical music, and renowned for his virtuoso playing techniques and compositions in orchestral fusion.
"Garland" is a unique piece, which brings out the two individual styles of improvisation, Indian and Jazz each on its own and together, Svend Asmussen's solo, which follows the introductory theme, is in pure jazz style, whereas Subramaniam's solos are in the true Indian tradition. Another unique feature is, that the piece is set to two different rhythmic cycles: the theme itself is in a seven beat cycle and the solos are in a four beat cycle. "Offering Of Love" is a romantic Ballad written, arranged and played by Subramaniam. It is basically a Western piece harmonic progressions sprinkled with gypsy flavour and a touch of Indian ornamentation. "That Dream is: a fusion composition, where there is a subtle interplay of both the Eastern and Western idiom.
