Another cracker of a concert by Sanjay and team. It has erased all the disappointments of previous days. Sanjay gave a superb performance to the packed and overflowing audience at the Nadasurabhi. Every member was doing a superb job. H K Venkatram was brilliant through out, so was the support by percussionists.

Superb mandAri and the fast paced neraval and swaras. Leisurely kAnaDa and a majestic SankarAbharanam. The Alapana of Sankarabharanam was outstanding and so was the return by Venkatram.  Sanjay also sang some western notes during the swara singing shadowed beautifully by Venkatram, to the warm reception by the audience.

It was 7:45 when the main krithi and the tani avartanam was completed. A grand RTP was in the offing and he did not disappoint anyone. This time it was behAg , and what an RTP that was.  Superb alapana and Tanam and after the initial pallavi singing, he turned to singing pallavi line in ragamalika. There was more to follow with a brisk alapana in sindhubhairavi and few end pieces. There was no speeches , no interruptions in between. Only music for 3:10 hrs. Customery introduction of artists were done at the beginning of the concert and that was it.
