Fusion on Menu for a Bollywood Great; Classical


Byline: PATSY FULLER

CLASSICAL music will look east when one of Bollywood's greatest singers teams up with her violinist husband for a concert next month.

Kavita Krishnamurti, one of the greatest voices of Bollywood films, will join her husband, Indian violin icon Dr L Subramaniam and musicians from India and the UK in a programme of Bollywood hits and classical Indian violin music at Birmingham Symphony Hall on April 30.

The concert will include hit songs such as Dola re Dola from the box-office smash Devdas - which have made Kavita a household name with Bollywood film buffs.

Tomorrow's concert also includes Jeptha by Carissimi and Membra Jesu Nostri by Buxtehude.

Christopher says: "If you love the Allegri, you will adore the other pieces - they are incredibly profound and passionate works which are rarely heard. We are performing with period strings and lute, which will add a special dimension. …
