An awesome concert. The grand rendition of the varnam in 2 kAlams with the svara sAhityams set-up the mood for a wonderful concert. The bEgaDa kriti was rendered soulfully and with a fitting round of svarams, with a quick umAbaraNam to follow.

The AlApanai of danyAsi was scintillating. The rAga bhAvam was fully intact and shown in great detail. The kriti was rendered wonderfully in a very emotive and meditative fashion. With a soulful and bhAvA laden sahAnA to follow, it was a wonderful to hear the kriti and a round of svarams.

The main course, pUrvikalyANi was so elating and grand. The phrases flowed all over the rasikas and created a certain kind of aura that is rare and few and far apart. The kriti was rendered in a fitting fashion, with a gripping round of neraval and svarams. It was very different and nice to listen to kIzhkAla svarams after the kIzhkAla neraval and the mEl kAlam to come later.

As if all this wasnt enough came the kAmbhOji. As the artists started to humm, one was in mood for a pallavi. The night was still young. However, the grand padam came as a surprise and was rendered in a soulstirring fashion. The paras jAvaLi and suruTTi thiruppAvai eventually led to the inevitable, end of a concert.

The vocalist was in great form and presented everything with a lot of grip and leisure, that added a lot to the overall listening pleasure of the concert. The choices were very classical and so was the presentation. The accompanists were wonderful.

The violinst was great in accompanying and in giving fitting responses. His solo versions of the rAgam and the svarams were all wonderful. The mrudangist played with great anticipation and with a lot of embellishments that made the concert totally much more enjoyable. His tani was nice as well.

A great concert indeed.

It was a wonderful concert. Each piece was rendered with a lot of traditional classical sangatis and with a lot of bhavam. The submain kEdAragauLa was started in a racy fashion. The AlApanai was developed very elegantly and with a lot of mesmerising sangatis. The kriti that was chosen came as a surprise. The song was rendered well followed by elaborate neraval and svarams at 'bhAgavata sEvalO baDaliyunnAvu'. The rendition of the tODi kriti was sedate and invoked a lot of bhavam and was very emotive. The main pUrikalyANi was majestic and rendered very well. The AlApanai was very elaborate and fitting the grand kriti that came up. The kriti was rendred with elaboratae neraval and svarams at 'panchAkshara linga rUpam prasanna rUpam'. The padam was rendred very well. The accompaniment provided by the violinist was very fitting and gelled well. The violinst showcased some very classical sangatis and gave fitting replies to the main artist. The mrudangist played with utmost anticipation and presented a nice tani.
