Make way for the Soprano from Gurugram

Oct 22, 2016 07:19 PM IST

Did you know the first Indian to be part of 500-year-old Vienna Boys’ Choir is an intrepid 11-year-old from Gurugram?

He had never heard of yodelling in Bollywood or maverick genius Kishore Kumar’s demonstration of his repertoire in songs such as Zindagi ik safar hai suhana. But Rishan Bhatnagar’s impressive rendering of Austrian Yodeller won the boy from Gurugram a scholarship to one of the best-known choirs in the world. Bhatnagar, 11, is the only Indian to be part of the 500-year-old Vienna Boys’ Choir, that includes an ensemble of sopranos, trebles and altos based in the Austrian capital. The choir has been the cradle for the creativity of such iconic composers as Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Schubert and Haydn.

The choir pitch is closest to the Soprano quality of voice, which Rishan Bhatnagar possesses
