Trasoff's technique was impressive...now and then there would be an outburst - half gasping moan, half transfiguring spirit - that hung in the air like an instant of pure truth. Those are the moments you live for in music...' - Daniel Buckley, Tucson Citizen ------ David Trasoff is one of the few Americans who has spent the years of training and practice required to bring North Indian classical music to the stage through the authentic performance of the ragas, solo or accompanied by tabla.
