CD review: Ravi Shankar Symphony

Performed by the London Philharmonic under David Murphy, it’s a resounding triumph, from the vibrant, animated opening movement Kafi Zila through an elegant, involving lento section of duetting flute and sitar, and an intriguing Indian scherzo whose hypnotic layerings of marimba, flute and sitar evoke echoes of American minimalism, through to the stirring, virtuoso finale.’ (5 stars)
