“Birju Maharaj is in the class of the great western performers such as Baryshnikov, Margot Fonteyn, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. He is a phenomenon”.

Beate Gordon, Director of performing Arts Department of the Asia Society, New York    

 

Zakir Hussain has astounded me with the depth and breadth of his musical intelligence: his fine attention to detail, his willingness to be a supportive accompanist, his wide-ranging curiosity and generosity with international collaborators and his exuberance and pedagogical approach to performance.
