  • "When the listener gets wistful while listening to a performance, he is deeply stirred. Nirmala Rajasekar's veena recital was one such instance. The full potential of the veena was used for producing eminently pleasing aural effects... at places the veena even simulating the human voice."                                                                                                                                                -The Hindu: Friday Review, India

  • "Rajasekar is regarded as a master of the veena. With the mantle of master comes the responsibility to share Carnatic music with others. She's passing her love for music onto students."                                        -Minnesota Public Radio, USA
