Renowned violin exponent M S Gopalakrishnan, hailed for his deep knowledge of both Carnatic and Hindustani music, died here Thursday following a brief illness.
The 82-year-old maestro was admitted to a private hospital here on Wednesday after he complained of breathlessness.
"Padmabhushan M S Gopalakrishnan breathed his last today at 2.30 am in a private hospital," his daughter M Narmadha said.
An artiste remembered for his immense knowledge of either forms of classical music, Gopalakrishnan had a career spanning 75 years. He was counted among the 'violin trinity' of his time — the other two being Lalgudi G Jayaraman and T N Krishnan.
A recipient of various awards including the Padma Bhushan and the Padma Shri, he was an artiste with an open mind for new ideas.
Gopalakrishnan is survived by his wife, two daughters and a son.
