Muthuswamy Deekshitar


Carnatic music has been endowed with thousands of compositions by a galaxy of composers, many of whom are today revered as saints. Among the most prolific are

Purandara Dasa (1480-1564);
Annamacarya (1408-1503);
Tyagaraja (1759-1847);
Muddusvami Dikshitar (1776-1827);
Syama Shastri (1762-1827).
The last three are known as the Trinity of Carnatic Music for the profound and indelible impression that their works have had on the modern understanding of Carnatic Music.
**********************************************************************************
Compositions in Carnatic music possess multiple dimensions:

Trinity of Carnatic Music


The aesthetic dimension refers to the melodic value profferred by the raga and its concerted usage with the lyrical dimension;
The lyrical dimension encapsulates the meaning intended by the composer and the religious value of the lyrics, or sahitya
The prosodical dimension describes the technical value associated with the poetic metre;
The rhythmic dimension captures the organization of the sahitya and prosody according to the composition’s tala.
Some compositional forms in Carnatic music include the varnam, the kriti, the tillana, the javali, and the padam, some of which were derived through the intimate relationship between Indian music and Indian classical dance.
********************************************************************************************
Each of the innumerable ragas of Carnatic music is defined by rules of usage of its notes including the permissible and forbidden manners of ascent and descent, the aesthetics of transitioning between notes (gamakas) and their relative prominence.

Time is measured according to beats or beat cycles known as talas.
