srI subramaNyO - MD
E maNi miguLa - SS
rUpamu jUchi - varNam

Sri Srivatsa explained the way the compositions are structured and some very essential things about tODi.

I am unable to write them all and post here for want of time and some short-term-memory-loss

Existance of 30 Tyagaraja, 8 Dikshitar and 4 Shyama Sastri pieces was recorded.

vAriti is a kriti with complete emphasis on pUrvAnga. vEdAraNyEsvara is a kriti with complete emphasis on uttarAnga. The PD kriti and sri subramaNyO were rendered one after another to show similarities in phrases used and the usage of different gamakkas on the gandhAram. The innaDa valE kriti, on dharmAmbikA of thiruvaiyar was rendered to emphasise on the different structuring of the kriti. dAkshAyaNi, nE pogaDa and karUNa nidhi ilalO were rendered to show how the rAgam can be easily fitted to different types of tALam. rAmacandrAya again to show emphasis on how the kriti exploits all tAra sthAyi prayOgams.

Sri Srivatsa also explained the meanings of the kritis and the words and all the nuances in the sAhitya. It was nice lecture.

This is first of a series of Lectures of similar kind, Sri Srivatsa is planning to deliver.

Next programme is on 27th of March on sankarAbaraNam.
