I am glad to learn that the Violin Maestro Dr. L. Subramaniam has initiated a series of International Music Festivals commencing on January 11, 1992 in Madras which has been the Centre of distinguished Music Festivals and performances over the decades.
I am glad to learn that the Lakshminarayana International Music Festival will bring together eminent Artists, Musicologists and Vidwans from far and near in a creative endeavour. I wish the Festival every success.
President Republic of India New Delhi, 9 January 1992
By his remarkable creativity and exceptional talent, Dr. L. Subramaniam has come to be recognized internationally as a great violinist. Following his father’s footsteps, Dr. Subramaniam has taken instrumental music to an altogether new and original dimension.
It is a matter of great satisfaction that he and his late wife, Shrimati Viji Subramaniam established a Global Music Festival in the name of Dr. Subramaniam’s father and guru, the late Professor V. Lakshminarayana.
I am delighted to be able to preside over the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival in Delhi featuring the Lithuanian Orchestra with the Kaunas State Choir specially conducted by Lord Menuhin and to be able to hear the distinguished violinist from Scandinavia – Arve Tellefsen and pianist Christian Eggen.
May Dr. Subramaniam continue to link the music and musicians of the world through his remarkable genius.

I am happy to know that the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival is being organised on February 10, 2005 at Siri Fort Auditorium, Delhi.
“Good music is indeed divine,
It enters into our minds,
Blossoms happiness in body and soul. Music enriches imagination, Imagination leads to creativity.”
On this occasion, I extend my warm greetings and felicitations to all those associated with the Festival and wish the events all success.

I have had the pleasure and privilege of attending the Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival and presenting the Lakshminarayana International Awards to eminent musicians and artists on a few occasions. The Lakshminarayana Festival organized by India’s renowned violinist Dr L. Subramaniam is perhaps the only global music festival hosted in India where artistes from different countries of the world perform. Over the years, the festival has emerged as a prestigious event in the music calendar of India.
Dr. L. Subramaniam is easily the finest exponent of Carnatic music of our times who has through his masterly performances popularized India’s divine music in different parts of the world. He has been endowed with a rare gift of adapting himself to different genres of music from Indian classical, Jazz fusion to Western Classical. Surprisingly he has achieved universal acclaim at a much younger age. I have witnessed many of his performances and experienced the sheer pleasure of his music. Dr. Subramaniam is a phenomenon to have happened to Indian Classical music at a time when music stands at the crossroad of purity and populism. I have no doubt in my mind that Dr. Subramaniam will take the Indian classical music to international heights with his adaptability, openness to learning and hard work.
As a connoisseur of music, I wish him many more years of glorious service to the cause of music in India and the world at large.
