It was a very good concert. Kum. Amrita did a very job in giving a fantastic concert. All the songs were rendered with a lot of gait and the manOdarmam was outstanding.

The AlApanai of pantuvarALi was quite elaborate and was a fitting prelude for the majestic Dikshitar piece. The neraval & svarams at the madhyama kAlam of the anupallavi were done in a very elegant fashion and was very moving. Earlier the neraval & svarams for the harikAmbhOji piece, at 'sEshuDu sivuniki' was very good and filled with rAga bhAvam too. The main course bhairavi was truly classical. It was very enjoyable and Kum. Amrita carefully incorporated all the bench-mark phrases of the grand ragam and built it up in a very matured fashion eventually culminating in the Shyama Sastri masterpiece. The kriti renditions of the nATTaikuranji and bhAgEsrI pieces need a special mention for the azhuttam with which they were rendered and the emotions they created.

In Sri L Ramakrishnan was a perfect accompanist on the fiddle. His accompanying the songs was perfect and his replies to manodarmam parts were totally matching. The mridangist, Sri Sivakumar was extraordinary. He played with amazing anticipation and accompanied all the songs with great care and it was in tandem through out the concert including the played a crisp tani that he played.
