i reached late for the concert. I could hear only from the kEdAram.
i liked whatever i heard.

Smt. Gopalakrishnan did a very good job in both manOdarmam and kalpitam parts. To sing a rare rAgam like sAranga tarangiNi, without getting the rasika bored, to such an elaborate extent, was indeed a great thing. She was equally at home with a rare rAgam like sAranga tarangiNi or with relatively popular rAgams like kEdAram and nATTakuranji. It was all done very well. The kriti renditions were very good as well. The elaboration of the pallavi itself, with trikAlam and the rAgamAlikA svarams were all done very well with utmost ease.

The accompanists were very supportive and played very aptly for the occasion.

A totally enjoyable concert.
