It was a great concert. I personally loved the whole concert. The sAvEri was awesome. The kIravANi was elaborate and absolutely bhava laden. The main srI rAgam was fantastic. All the songs seem to have been carefully chosen for the occasion. There was a good mix of ragams and composers and all the songs were rendered with a lot of bhavam and classicism. The accompanists were wonderful and made it a concert to remember for a long time.

It was an excellent concert. I walked in late, during the danyAsi. The veteran musician showed a lot of Voleti in his style of singing. The AlApanais of both kannaDa and Anandabhairavi were brilliantly handled. kalyANi was handled in a superb fashion. The kriti renditions were good. The svarams and neraval wherever done were with a lot of bhavam. The choice of kritis to present was very offbeat and refreshing. The accompanists were matching and did an amazing job with providing much needed support to the main artist. Fantastic concert. Should listen to him more.

It was a great concert. All the pieces carefully chosen and presented with a lot of bhavam. Being a thematic concert, there were a few interludes explaining some of the facets and interesting points about the compositions that were presented. Also, there was more emphasis on the compositions and not on the manOdarmam as the occasion demanded. The kritis were all rendered very well. The AlApanai of pUrvikalyANi was short while that of kAmbhOji was very beautiful. The neraval svarams in both were presented crisply. The rAgamAlikA viruTTam was also very beautifully rendered.

On the whole it was an evening if grand classical music from the veteran. The bEgaDa made my day.

It was a good concert. The bEgaDa was presented well. The mukhAri AlApanai was nice as well. However, I would prefered a more peppy song between the varNam and dhEnukA to make it a better punchy start for the concert. The accompanists were good as well.
