Smt.Gayathri Venkataraghavan gave a very good concert yesterday at the Gayana Samaja. She was performing here for the first time, as it was announced later. What was impressive about this was the choice of krithis ( rare krithis and from a vast variety of composers). Even though she sang every krithi very well, for me , the take of the day was the madhyamavathi krithi, which I have not heard before. The alapana and the swaras that followed after a rather long krithi was very impressive. Sri Cheluvaraju and Omkar was superb today, though the decibel level for percussionists were on a higher side. Nalina Mohan was also good, especially during the bilahari and Madhyamavathi krithis. A good concert on a weekend.
