"Guldasta": Prof. D.T. Joshi and His Compositions

Pt. Debu Chaudhuri (Author)
Synopsis Prof. Dhruva Tara Joshi, popularly known as "Joshi ji" was not only a refined musician of class but also a seasoned composer. He had a vast knowledge of Urdu, Hindi, English and Bengali language. His love for music and passion for language helped him to understand the philosophy of music. He was a great Sitar player of his time and gave a number of brilliant concerts all over India but unfortunately his physical problem forced him to stop playing Sitar. So Joshi ji concentrated more on composing and teaching music. That is why he composed not only Khayal, Dhrupad, Ghazals in Urdu language but also composed many famous instrumental bandish. During one of his rare visits to Delhi, Joshi ji left his manuscripts with the author and requested him to publish his life time achievement. There are about 94 vocal compositions in this publication selected from his manuscript which include Khyal, Dhrupad and some instrumental compositions. Many of these compositions are sung by the present performers as they have been accepted as the creation of a master composer. He was a Guru in its truest sense and taught many students who are no more today and some of them are renowned musicians of the day. His pen name (takhllaoos) as a composer in Hindi was "Prem Rang" and in Urdu language it was "Junu Lucknowee." He was also a great composer of vocal classical music and some of his instrumental compositions have also been included in the last chapter just to show his vast repertoire and command on the subject. He was a great personality, a great artiste and become friendly to any one, who had the fortune of coming close to him. As a person and as a human being he had no parallel in the field of music. The book is a testimony of "Joshiji's" great creations and the performers and students of music of all time to come will be immensely benefited from this invaluable publication.
