Here are some more stately music for an elevated taste. Unfortunately not enough have been reissued of these old plates by Fayaz Khan Sahib. There are some more collections on CD's but with mostly overlapping repertoire. Any extra supply is most welcome. Hope you enjoy!
Ustad Fayaz Khan (born at Sikandara near Agra in 1886, died 5 November 1950 in Baroda, he
is considered to be one of the most important exponents of the Agra Gharana and one of the most influental vocalists of last century.
From the backside of the sleeve we can add to our gleanings the following information...
He had a very massive voice, deep and robust, and his presentation was spell-binding. Although kheyals were his forte, he was equally impressive in the renderings of Dhrupad, Dhamar, Thumri and even lighter modes like Dadra and Sawaree. About the year 1915, the late Sayajeerao Gaikwad of Baroda appointed him a court musician in his Durbar and he held that position till his death in 1950. He was also awarded the title 'Aftah-e-Mauseeqi' by the Maharaja of Mysore for his meritorious performances.
On this disc is offered a selection from recordings made by him years ago. Listening to them even today is a thrilling experience, so divine, so sublime is the quality of their presentation.
