Letters: Ravi Shankar, sitar master

Re "He introduced Indian music to much of the Western world," Obituary, Dec. 12

I had the great fortune to see Ravi Shankar several times over the last 30 years.

Unquestionably the most impressive of any musical performance I have ever seen was his benefit concert in Long Beach on Nov. 4. Despite requiring oxygen and assistance getting to and from the stage, he was in fine form throughout the show, demonstrating his characteristic sense of humor, masterful musicianship and love for the audience, fellow musicians and family.

The performance, like his long and tremendously creative life, was a gift to all.
