How to Play Indian Sitar Raags on a Piano by John Pitts

Explore the amazing world of Indian raags, reinvented for piano solo

Explore the amazing world of Indian raags, opened up in this sympathetic but thorough reinvention for piano solo (or duet or two pianos) by award-winning British composer John Pitts. Sheet music for 24 raags (sunset-to-sunset), detailed instructions, countless musical examples.

Indian raags have an extraordinary musical heritage dating back several centuries (from the area that is now India, Pakistan and Bangladesh) – a truly unique musical genre of fascinating melodic beauty and rhythmic intricacy – freely combining elaborate composed melodies with carefully rehearsed improvisation. Now this amazing world has been opened up in this sympathetic, but thorough, reinvention for piano solo (or duet or two pianos) by award-winning British composer, John Pitts.
