Very good concert put together by O S Thyagarajan and team. It was very pleasent , traditional and soothing concert.  The extended varnam with a set of swara singing , set the tone of the concert.  Beautiful alapana of Surutti and the main Shanmukhapriya were brilliant. For once I thought we are likely to have a main in surutti as the Alapana lasted  almost 10 mins. Again the majestic 18-20 min of Shanmukhapriya brought the RTP in the  offing, but he decided otherwise. Post main krithis were very short and brisk and apart from the hamsanandi piece, not worth mentioning.  This has been the case in all his recent concerts.

C N chandrasekharan was very good , after a slow start. His return alapana of Surutti and Shanmukhapriya were brilliant, so was the follow on Kalyani.  Arjunkumar was very good as always. He has this ability to raise the level of concert with his influence. He also played a nice tani avartanam with Srishylan.

    Yes, and the extended (!) varnam was very good. As you said, that set the tempo of the concert.
