RIP T N Krishnan one of the legendary violinists of our times. In the pantheon of Carnatic music violinists when we were growing up, there were 3 greats, Lalgudi Jayaraman, MS Gopalakrishnan and T N Krishnan. Now all 3 are gone. Om Shanti. #tnkrishnan

Really saddened by the passing away of the great T N Krishnan, the last of a kind. Whether it was Saarasaksha, Raghuvamsasudha or Jingle Bells, the violin was his slave. Here’s from his 2017 Xmas Day concert at Music Academy….the last I saw him live. Om Shanthi🙏🏽 #TNKrishnan pic.twitter.com/yeXd3Le8Cy

TN Krishnan – the Violin stalwart is/was an idol of one of my friends. He used to rave about the man and his art in lengths. He used to look forward to the Christmas concert at the Academy for the #JingleBell & the hearty New Year’s wish from the man himself.
