Selected reviews from press worldwide on Sri Chinmoy's music

It was clearly not an event to advertise or raise money. Sri Chinmoy’s approach was altogether different. He aimed to instill a profound sense of harmony in the hearts of his audience by playing soulful music.

These songs remind us that heaven is inside ourselves. Is this not their essential worth?
Aurores Magazine / France

The crowd had come not only for the music, but also for what was between the compositions, the inner serenity that the sounds only serve to prolong.
Le Monde / Paris, France


This is the story of an astonishing man. He is a man who has more than one string to his bow: he is a musician, he is an Indian man born in Bengal, he is a philosopher and a painter as well.
TV5 / France

If you listen to Sri Chinmoy’s organ improvisations totally, a dense, roaring, ever-surprising ride on a torrent awaits you: mighty, primeval in its power, ecstatic, but utterly simple, refreshingly carefree, resounding, overwhelming.

More than 10,000 wanted to hear the Concert given by Sri Chinmoy, but only 8,000 found seats.

Sri Chinmoy’s pipe organ improvisations will prove to be one of the most powerful, ecstatic and spiritually uplifting performances anyone is ever likely to encounter. Adventurous listeners who are inwardly quiet and fully present will discover the music of genius.

What a piano virtuoso Sri Chinmoy is. Listening to his piano piece was a revelation. By turns I was swept away in a tidal wave of creative energy. It was like a genesis, a primal creation, and then calmed by the sweetness of sunshine bathing a glistening landscape. I sat still, transfixed. And again I was amazed at Sri Chinmoy’s incredible range of creative and humanitarian energies.

Sri Chinmoy’s music can be forceful and intense, and at other times bouncy, naive and light. There’s something undeniably uplifting and fascinating, something purely human about the music.
Ear Magazine / USA

Sri Chinmoy’s sublime spiritual mastery reveals through music the infinite vastness of the universe as an intimate sanctuary of the soul. It is a living counter-melody to the immortal soundless sound which resides within us all.

This was an evening for silent meditations and for haunting tunes, played on Indian flute, esraj and other instruments, sent into the crisp evening air by Sri Chinmoy.
Los Angeles Times / Los Angeles, CA, USA





























                                           Sri Chinmoy himself performed one haunting number on the esraj, and a lovely, very modern flute essay pretty enough to make a deer lay its head in the musician’s lap.

Some of the most inspired music I’ve heard from a solo performer — classical, pop or otherwise.
