The Caturda??iprakasika (c. CE 1650) 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 and attractive paddhati. It has been profoundly influencing every musician, musicologist and composer of south India ever since it was written. This influence will remain undimmed in the foreseeable future. The Caturda??iprakasika is written in ten chapters: Sruti, Svara, Mela, Raga, Alapa, ?haya, Gita, Prabandha and Tala. It is being issued in two volumes: The first volume consists of the critically edited text, English translation, text-critical comments, critical and explanatory notes, several indices and a detailed critical introduction. The second volume contains a critical study of rare commentary of this text called Makhih?daya.Printed Pages: 1191.
