Noted music composer of yesteryear, T K Ramamurthy (91) died in Chennai on Wednesday following brief illness.

The veteran composer, also a violinist, breathed his last Wednesday morning at a hospital, sources close to his family said.

The M S Viswanathan-Ramamurthy duo had composed music for a number of films including 'Karnan', the story of the warrior king which starred a galaxy of actors including South Indian thespians Sivaji Ganesan and N T Ramarao.

Later, Ramamurthy parted ways with Viswanathan in the mid-60s and composed music for a few films.

Ramamurthy's recent significant public appearance came at the anniversary function of Jaya TV, where he was honoured by chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
