It was a very moving concert. Each piece was rendered with a great amount of precision of sAhityam and totally bhAva-laden. I personally find it tough to choose which was the best. The AlApanais of hamIrkalyANi and husEni and shankarAbaraNam were all very beautiful. The Ahiri navAvarNam took one to ultimate levels of ecstasy. The accompanists were gelling well and on the whole the team made it an unforgettable concert.

It was one superb concert. From the grand varNam, each piece was rendered very beautifully. Everything fell in place. The AlApanais were as usual very innovative and refreshing. The neraval were extensive. I was mesmerised by his one Avarthana svarams. The number of patterns which kept coming were just endless. The violinst was giving good replies. Sri Murthy was playing very well, in complete tandem with the main artist. Sri Sivaraman ably supported him.
