It was a great concert. Krishnan mama in great form. The concert was preceeded by a short speech by Sri Srinivasan of Nadopasana and handing over of a purse to Vidwan Sri KR Saranathan as part of an endowment instituted by Chitraveenai Sri N Narasimhan in memory of his father, Gottuvadhyam Vidwan Sri Narayana Iyengar. The meeting was scheduled for 6:15 and the concert for 6:30. However, the function began at 6:05 and the concert by 6:10 pm. Something this writer still refuses to believe, that a meeting concert started and ended before it was scheduled to happen.

The varnam was started in a rather less leisurely pace, however the kAlApramANam was so wonderful especially the second speed was too good. The ravicandrikA piece was played with the usual vigour with an elaborate round of svarams. The AlApanai was sahAnA was dripping with classical phrases everywhere. The rendition of giripai was so touching. The elaborate main AlApanai of tODi was touching unknown frontiers of the rAgam and sailing across the ocean of the rAgam with utmost ease. What an AlApanai that was! The kriti was rendered with its regular gait. There was a grand finale with wonderful neraval and svarams to lead to the tani. The AlApanais of all the post main pieces were all sweet and the pieces were rendered so well.

Sri Krishnan was in his usual best rendering music that was touching the soul and soothing to the ear. Smt. Viji provided excellent support to her and shared all parts giving able support. There was probably very little difference and the transition between the father and daughter were so smooth and were unnoticed. Sri Manoj Siva and Sri Guruprasad provided wonderful support to the concert. They embellished the concert with their playing and their tani was awesome too.

A totally fulfilling concert.
