On a weekday, you dont expect to be there at the beginning of the concert. However, I did not want to miss the major part of the concert. When I came in, the shanmukhapriya alapana was going on. As the case with her concert at the Rama Lalita Kala mandira, this concert was a continuation of the previous one. She was very good through out. Awesome neraval for the main krithi, very apt rounds of swara singing. A relatively lesser known filler krithi. To me the best of the day was the RTP in bhagEsri. Not sure if she sang this in madhyamasruti ( she did make some changes in tanpura before this) I did have difficulty with identification for a long time. It was brilliant to say the least. I remember Sanjay sang a Bhagesri RTP at the same venue last year. A very good concert with some superb support by accompanying artists.
