The Violin is one of the most beautiful of musical instruments. It originates from the string instruments family and has a pitch range of at least three octaves. The violin origin has been traced to Ravan Hattha, an ancient instrument from India. Even in present time Ravan Hattha is in use in the interior parts of Rajasthan. Ravan Hattha was created by the great musician Ravana during the Ramayana regime. Thereafter violin has traveled to Persia through the Arabs it called RABABEH then Rebec (Arabian), Lira Di Braccio (French) and the Renaissance Fiddle (Italy). The Violin was introduced to India around 300 years ago when Baluswami Dikshitar learned it from the army bandmaster at Fort St. George (Madras). The present day violin was developed in Italy during the 16th century until it's proportions were standardized in the 17th century. The biggest difference between Indian and western Classical music is that the former is based very largely on improvisation, with emphasis on the creativity of the performer rather than on the exact reproduction of the composer's work.
