…. I had to leave at this point.. Nadasurabhi site will have the complete details..

At the outset, the concert was prepared meticulously and thoughtfully. However, due to the ill health of the vidushi, she wasnt been able to deliver what the list above had promised. She started the concert with an apology for her bad throat.  Physical limitation have hampered a concert, which would have been one to remember.

She showcased some of the rare, interesting krithis of dikshitar, accompanied with her commentary on the compositions. Khamas and shudhamukhari kritis were very interesting. While she struggled to give a detailed alapana, often relying on her desciple ( his name escapes me – who in turn gave a pretty decent alapana ) to complete, not venturing into neraval, moving on to few rounds of swarams.

I had to leave at the beginning of tani avartanam, and not sure what concluded the concert. I hope she will recover soon and give the same in its full effect.

    thanks, i attended sreevalsan’s concert at gayana samaj, he started with Jagadanandakaraka, moved on to Paripaalayamaam in reethigowla with a short alap, then came two fillers in sri mathrubootham in kanada and naada tanumanisham in chitta ranjani, Vasudevayani in kalyani with a brief alap, the main was thodi – Shri Krishnam Bhaja followed by thani, violin was excellent from Balu Raghuraman, sudhindra was a joy with his mridangam and Narayana Murthy was good with his ghatam. After a short speech, with almost no time he started of with a wonderful rtp in kapi “nandagopa yashoda thanaya”, ragamalika in chandrakauns, hameer kalyani,desh followed and a few others i could not recognize, wonderful concert in all, finished of with baghyada lakshmi and a mangalam.
