Indian Classical music lost yet another stalwart as the highly revered violinist M.S.Gopalakrishnan(10 June 1931-3 January 2013) breathed his last around 2 a.m on 3rd Jan 2013. Boasting of a stellar career, MSG as he was fondly called, was conferred with great honours like Padma Bhushan, Padma Shri and Sangita Kalanidhi title by the Music Academy. The most novel and standout feature in his music was that he was always open to new ideas and seamlessly blended Carnatic and Hindustani forms. Thus, his violin playing style attracted purists and youngsters alike. He is one musician, who can truly be called a ‘virtuoso’. His passing away has left a void that is extremely hard to fill.
