Music san noise is always pleasure, especially an early morning session in a close settings. It indeed is a challenge for the artist to perform with only tanpura to support. The short comings of the vocal issues will be out in the open , not hidden by the violin. Also, it is difficult to engage the audience for a longer period with out a percussion to add to the effect. There is also the issue of voice being ready for an early cold morning concert. But, Vidushi Tanmayee Krishnamurthy overcome all those inhibitions with a classy concert on the last morning of the year.

I liked the way she planned the morning. Eased through the early part, spent a lot of time of Shlokam/ugabhoga , spread the morning thtough various composers, mixed it up well and added her bit with two well done kalpana swaras. She, probably could have skipped the ‘pAlincu kAmAkSi’ after the listerner’s choice was in favour of the earlier abhEri. A couple of slips at the lyrics was the only miss in the whole day. She can also look at some of the word stresses in future ( bAramA/ bhAramA , ghalanEni/galanEni, dhootam/dootam etc).

Impressive voice, presentation and manodharmam. Both bahudhari and abheri kalpana swaras were very good, so was the short alapana of abheri. Finally, a grand way to end another musical year for me.

The youngsters presented a brilliant concert yesterday at Nadasurabhi. Very pleasing to see young musicians coming up with some commendable performance. Sunil Gargyan has been in the watch out list for me for last couple of years and this is the first time, I am getting to see him performing live. He indeed made a good first impression. Very compelling , with no unwanted exuberance , no overtly attempt to impress with what he has learned so far, no over reliance on speed. He will go places.

After the brisk varnam, he sang the second tirupavai ( apparently it was the second day of Margazhi) before a good begada alapana.Violin struggled a bit to getin line with the procedings,and his begada wasn’t all that appealing. As one was waiting for vallabha nayakasya to follow, the young vidvan surprised us with a Vadiraja composition ‘lOka bharitanO’. Few round of swaras accompanied.

Varali alapana was detailed and demonstrated some of his capabilities. Very impressive. Dikshitar’s mAmava mInAkSi with a sturdy neraval and swara at shyAme shankari was done very well. Changed the speed with a kannaDa and some quick fire swaras, with some brilliant percussion support. It was time to serve kApi, well done. Nice neraval, detailed swaras in the first speed and rather short one in second speed.

Percussion team should get an extra applause. Vinod Shyam and Sunad were brilliant. Good anticipation, apt improvisation, appropriate fillers and the duo improved the overall concert experience with their involvement. Aditya took time to settle on his part.

Beautiful ugabhoga ( the young man should be given credit for such wonderful selection of compositions) was the highlight of the post main section.

A very well planned ( the selection of compositions and ragams) and presented concert, the way he paced his concert, the on-stage interactions ; I think he has impressed me.
