A Prodigy…My cousin? and my interest in Classical Music

Aishwarya Venkataraman, my second cousin is a prodigy. I met for the first time when she came to perform at ASU yesterday. At 13, she is an accomplished and an amazing violin player. You guys can and should read more about here.

I heard Classical Indian music after ages yesterday at her concert and I realized how much I actually enjoyed it. I used to regularly go to some concerts with my parents when I was in India. But, this was my first one since I came to the United States and my interest in classical music has come back again. She gifted me one of her CDs. I have not heard it yet but I am going to hear it today when I go back home today.

I am just a novice classical music listener and I don’t understand the intricacies in them.
It is just that I find them very soothing and melodious to hear and I hope I learn more about it when I start listening to them.
