"Some 3000 spectators listened
to Krishna Mohan Bhatt... as he gave one of the most pleasing
performances of his most illustrious musical career with his
full and elaborate exposition of Hem Lalit raga in alap, jod,
jhala and gat. The fast gat (composed piece) and the climactic
sawal-jawab sequences... were startling and enjoyable. He
then rendered two light classical pieces vocally and went
on demonstrating them on his instrument explaining the generic
characteristics of the song form. He explained or rather showed
the concordance of sahitya (literature) and sangeet (music)
as the basis for delineation of light classical music."

"... a signature style... pretty and romantic
in mood and sweep... in Raga Misra Kafi he charged the air
with some of the most dreamily romantic music it has been
my pleasure to behold. Hyacinth wafted, parrots preened themselves,
romance was in the air. The beauty of the moment, the beauty
of music turned visual."
"Highly intense world of sound...
a warm atmosphere in which the sounds and soul of India could
be felt... one was swept up by dreams of perfumed gardens...
this music is uniquely spontaneous and direct; serious and
full of joy at the same time. The artists improvise and play
from the depth of their souls... a fascinating performance
of classical Indian music."
