Dr. Subramaniams performances and compositions have pushed the bounds of traditional musical genres and pioneered global fusion, blending Indian Carnatic music, Western classical music, jazz, and world music. Since 1973, he has released over 200 recordings and collaborated with musicians such as Jean-Pierre Rampal, George Harrison, and Al Jarreau.
Dr. Subramaniam has been described as the Paganini of Indian violin, and fellow violinist Lord Yehudi Menuhin has said, I find nothing more inspiring than the music making of my very great colleague Subramaniam. Each time I listen to him, I am carried away in wonderment
