“His kind of musician doesn’t come often. He elevated music to a new level with his creativity and genius. He was one of those few musicians who had mastered the instrument called viola. It’s a great loss for the nation. He was certainly a Bharat Ratna material and he will always be remembered as a legend who was part of the golden period of Indian music along Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, M.S. Subbulakshmi,” said Subramaniam.

Balamuralikrishna passed away earlier today after a brief illness. The legend was 86 when he breathed his last. Among the many honours awarded to him, sitting right at top is nation’s second highest civilian honour Padma Vibhushan. The French government also awarded him with the prestigious Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2005.
