Quantity:

Caturdandiprakasika (c. 1650 A.D.) of Venkatamakhin is a fundamental treatise of Karnataka music and marks the rearguard in the renaissance of Indian music. It has launched a crucial, conceptual revolution which has metamorphosed this musical system into an enduring the attractive paddhati. Caturdandiprakasika is written in ten chapters: Vina, Sruti, Svara, Mela, Raga, Alapa, Thaya, Gita Prabandha and Tala.

The first volume consists of the critically edited Text, English Translation, Text-Critical Comments, Critical and Explanoatory Notes, several Indexes and a detailed Critical Introduction.

The second volume is a detailed commentary of Caturdandiprakasika called Makhihrdaya. It consists of a purely musicological study, critical and comparative and Caturdandiprakasika, set in a historical perspective. It inaugurates a modern era in Indian musicology of critical analysis and interpretation devoted to a single musicological text. With an interdisciplinal approach, it organizes enormous musicological information in a compact format.

This translation of Caturdandiprakasika of Venkatamakhin strikes a balance between appreciation and criticism of Venkatamakhin and his contributions. It provides a historical continuity to the subject matter both in its entirety and in its divisions so that the author's personality and his work are placed in the perspective of totality and distance of both the past and contemporaneity.
