"This performance is a sequel to a blockbuster Call Of The Valley album released in 1967 by EMI. The maturing of Sharma and Chaurasia is visible in their presentation of their music and despite a huge gap since their previous duet, the clear fusing of their minds and music is simply magical! It is as natural and seamless as one could possibly imagine! Hearing this concert on a CD gave one flutters but to see it being performed visually makes one fully realise what an incredible performance this is! Apart from the pedigree, it is better to identify The Valley Recalls more as iconic in its own right rather than a sequel, per se, to what in the 1960s was a mould breaking effort to bring classical music in an idiom more widely acceptable and enjoyable."
