Another fantastic concert yesterday by Sanjay, to conclude the 40th Ganakala Parishad’s annual music Festival. This will be in the talk of the music circle for few days. Another vivadi raga was taken up as main and Sanjay did a fantastic job. An outstanding alapana of Gangeya bhushani, equally brilliant violin return by H K Venkatram, superb rendition of the kriti with a intersting take of neraval ( wasn’t the traditional neraval) and some good swara prasthana. Overall, the main piece of the day was worth all the trouble of reaching the venue.
Entire concert was with not often heard krithis. Started with Neelambari Varnam, followed with purvikalyani with a quick sets of swaras Surutti was the first alapana and another not rare krithi followed. Bharivi alapana had few different takes. R K Padmanabha in his felicitation speech , did mention the same. The neraval and swara was very good. Kedaram has become a staple diet in every concert. However, it was again a not often heard krithi of Swathi thirunal.
Sudheendra was all excited and did some wonderful job in accompanying the main artists. He and Rajasekhar continued it with a good tani avartanam. The falicitation after the main krithi, started with a recital of verse by R K Padmanabha , in gangeya bhushani praising Sanjay for the concert ( it too too long , denying a RTP to the audience). He said this evening belongs to Sanjay ( or somthing to that effect in kannada using the words like ‘Sanjayina sanje’).
It was 9:00 pm by the time the speeches and garlands were over, and obviously the RTP was out of question. Sanjay started a Sindhubhairavi chain with 2 songs and a thillana. There was a ragamalika slokam which was outstanding ( especially the kedaragaula) before the mangalam.
