It was an outstanding concert. The grand old lady of carnatic music gave the audience of the overflowing hall at essae music foundation an treat to cherish. Pure music at its best display. There was no hurried rendering, no unwanted passages, no elongated swara circus. It was pure bliss. There is nothing specific to mention as the whole concert was in a different level. However, I would like to mention the neraval “panchakshara manthrarUpam prasanna rUpam” from the pUrvikalyAni krithi and the majestic shanmukhapriya alapana, the ragamalika tanam and neraval at ‘kAnchi nagara nivAsini’ and the ragamalika swara followed at the end. Charulatha Ramanujam was very supportive and she was awesome in the main Shanmukhapriya krithi.  Sri Ananthakrishna Sharma was superb handling the percussion dept alone and he summed up his performance with a good tani avartanam.
