Music composer T K Ramamurthy passes away

Chennai, Apr 17, 2013 (PTI)

Noted music composer of yesteryear, T K Ramamurthy (91) died here today following brief illness.

The veteran composer, also a violinist, breathed his last this 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.
