Anoushka Shankar Sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar presented her legendary father Pandit Ravi Shankar 's latest concerto with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra to a full house at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York.

The world premiere of "Sitar Concerto #3 for Sitar and Orchestra" over the weekend was a huge hit with the audience at the Carnegie Hall.

Though she had performed at Carnegie nearly 15 times with her father, or in a larger ensemble, this was her first appearance as a soloist.



This concerto, commissioned by Orpheus, evokes the journey of a young girl from lonely childhood to passionate love affair.

The work featured evocative melodies played with soulful elegance by Anoushka, including a striking passage with a tune unfolding languorously over a string drone.

Shankar finished writing his concerto last year with the well-known Welsh conductor David Murphy transcribing it.
