The concert began with a short sketch of darbAr. The varNam was rendered neatly followed by the asAvEri kriti. The kEdAram AlApanai was short. The rare kriti was rendered well with a round of svarams at 'kEdArEshvaram visvEshvaram'. The varALi AlApanai was good and wholesome. The grand kriti was rendered amazingly well with neraval and svarams at 'sAgara shayanuni tyAgarAjanutuni'. The bEgaDa AlApanai was short and crisp. The kriti was followed by a quick round of svarams. The anandhabhairavi piece which followed had a sparkling cittai svaram as well.

The main kalyANi AlApanai was sung well. The kriti was rendered well with an elaborate round of svarams and korappu at the pallavi line. The padam was amazing. The jAvaLi and the other pieces which followed were all good also.

Smt Nandita gave a nice concert with a lot of classical pieces, true to her lineage and keeping the tradition going.

Smt Poorna on the violin was good in all parts of the concert. She gave good replies to the main artists and was very supportive in playing for the kritis.

Sri Kumar was his usual self, playing in accordance to is being presented. He played with good anticipation. His tani in a not-so-popular tALam was good as well.
