Unnikrishnan @ Odukathur Mutt 26 Aug 2007

27 Aug

Yesterday’s concert by Sri Unnikrishnan was the BEST OF THE SERIES so far.  He was in amazing form and was in no mood to stop.

Here are the details..

Vocal : Unnikrishnan

Violin : B U Ganesh Prasad

Mrudangam : K V Prasad

Ghatam : A S N Swamy

01 viribONi ( varnam ) – bhairavi –  Pacchimiriyam Adiyappa       O

02 guruvAyUrappA  – chakravAkam – Papanasam Sivan   O, S

03 bhagAyanayya – chandrajyOthi – Thyagaraja               A,S

     first detailed Alapana and what a marvel.

04 srI venkata girIsham – surutti   – Muthuswami Dikshithar     A

    Another beautiful alapana of Surutti Ragam

05 jaya jaya padmanAbha murAre – chArukEsi – Swathi Thirunal      S

06 pankaja lOchanA – kalyANi – Swathi thirunal                   A,N,S,T   

      Neraval at vridAvanAntha krithavi vidha sukha vihara 

07 RTP – kApi –

pallavi lines ‘mOhana muralIdhara gOpala murahara …’

Ragamalika swaras in kApi, ranjani , bahudAri ,kuntaLavarALi , ranjani , kApi

One of the best RTP I’ve heard in recent times. Beautiful raga alapana by both vocalist and the violinst followed with some outstanding ragamalika swaras.

08 nArAyayaNathe namO namO – behAg – Annamacharya     O

09 vittala talagO swAmI  – dEsh – Purandaradasa        O

10 pAvanaguru pavana – hamsAnandi –  Lalithadasa

11 mangaLam – sourAshtram – Thyagaraja

I would say, this was the best of the series so far.  Look at the selection of Ragams, the composers, the way he choose to detail each krithi .  Beautiful kalyani and a what a ‘kapi’ it was.  Secratary Ramesh aptly summarised this as an ‘Onam Sadya’ by Unnikrishnan and such was the treat for the packed audience.
