Product Description

Product Description

Sumptuous and surreal, the Kronos Quartet and Asha Bhosle's You've Stolen My Heart is not unlike the colorful, melodramatic Indian film musicals to which it pays tribute. Eight of its twelve tracks feature superstar Bollywood film playback singer Asha Bhosle, widely considered the world's most recorded vocalist. The songs were chosen from the repertoire of her husband, the late composer R.D. Burman, who revolutionized the sound of the movies produced at Mumbai's (formerly Bombay) fabled studios, a.k.a. Bollywood.

BBC Review

Most of us know Asha Bhosle from Cornershop's cheeky 1999 tribute "Brimful of Asha" and the Kronos Quartet as the daring (and daringly populist)outfit that makes headlines with new musical excursionsand reworkings of early music.

This celebration of Rahul Dev Burman's (1939-1994) groundbreaking soundtracks for Indian cinema is a unique project, in that the members of Kronos have devoted themselves fully to aping the master's sound.

While the cello might be a tad more elegant on lovely ditties like "Mehbooba, Mehbooba" and the flourishes a little less celestial throughout, this is a faithful, warm-hearted selection of 12 lovely songs. Septuagenarian Bhosle gasps and pants and croons almost as gorgeously as she did when recording with Burman, and her virtuosity matches up to the demands of the compositions as they switch mood, change rhythm and hop across genres: there's gypsy music, can-can, and even mariachi in this musical marsala.

Some say the Kronos Quartet is a bit too canny and commercial when conceiving projects, but this is more than a cynical bit of bandwagon-leaping, and will draw new audiences to the trance-inducing beat of Bollywood. --Chris Moss

What a wonderful record. The Kronos Quartet take on R.D. Burman's filmi sangeet, the songs for the Bollywood blockbusters, stars the Diva herself, Asha Bhosle, on 8 of the 12 record tracks. Also featuring, percussionist Zakir Hussain and Chinese's pipa player Wu Man. But the KQ doesn't just play the transcriptions of Burman's songs to a string quartet, they add flavour and spice to na already very spiced music. The result is exuberant, elegant and very funny. Asha's vocals are just superb, the arrangements are luxuriant, still retaining all the cinematic quality of the songs.

I know next to nothing about Indian music, except that I've been sometimes quite taken with random pieces I've heard, and even some Ravi Shankar at times (although, doesn't he go ON sometimes?) You've Stolen My Heart is a collection of various styles of Indian film music (although, all written by the same composer), and wasn't always an easy album to listen to for a 30-something indiekid like myself, largely because it's such an unfamiliar style - and it can be difficult to appreciate such a very different genre from the usual. But, hell, we all need to break out from the usual once in a while, don't we?
So...on first listen I was sometimes intrigued, but equally often mystified, bored or even irritated by what was going on here.
My advice would be, however, to try listening again, because while this may never become an all-time favourite of mine it is a CD I'll be returning to, and it definitely improves, as the different styles becomes more familiar, over time. While at an unfamiliar first or second listen the whole thing can seem to blend into a bit of an unmemorable mishmash, over a few listens some beautiful and exotic tunes will differentiate themselves and you'll wonder how you missed them the first time around!
Recommended for patient listeners who want to hear something a bit different from the norm.
