My father, Pandit Shiv Dayal Batish remembers being accompanied by Dr. Mustafa Raza's father Ustad Ahmed Raza Khan when used to be invited to sing at All India Radio, Delhi. He mentions that the late Ustad Ahmed Raza Khansahib was not just a great Vichitra Veena player but als quite an accomplished Harmonium player. He also saw, on a number of occasions, Ustad Abdul Aziz Khansahib performing for my father's guruji Shri Chandan Ram Charan of Patiala. He mentions this episode in his "Vichitra Veena TUtor" mentioned above.
