A fabulous performance by Sri Vijay Siva. With the same set of accompanists ( well almost, Ghatam in place of Ganjira) he gave a performace much more enjoyable this time. Every krithi was rendered leisurely, with lot of feel and detail.  Fromthe word go, it had all that required for a grand concert.  Everything had fallen in place. An in form Neyveli Narayanan , awesome support by Charulatha ( she was very good at the Fort School concert, but today she raised her level to a greater degree) and a dedicated set of listeners. All tha alapanas , be it Poorvi kalyani, bhairavi or the majestic RTP of Abheri , all were superb. For the disappointment of Fort School RTP , he made amends with a superb RTP in Abheri today ( those who wish to read it as karnataka devagandhari are free to do so).  An awesome concert , one of the best ( to heart) for a long time.

he took off with the slokam immediately after singing the swaras for the Pallavi.

12. bhujaga SAyinO – yadukulakAmbOji – Swati Thirunal

Slokam (swasti prajabya) – yadukulakAmbOji

When I reached, he was already into the neraval of suguNamulE. But the effort was worth every penny ( I paid for ticket) Vijay Siva gave a melodious , soul stirring concert. One come back very calm and peaceful after attending his concert. Hamirkalyani and Sankarabharanam were top class. I am a bit diappointed with  the RTP. One it was very short ( 3 min alapana , less than 5 min tanam and very short swaras) and also because it was a repeat of his last concert in Bangalore at Nadasurabhi. Same RTP in Anandabhairavi and same pallavi lines. Oh, Sankarabharanam was main there too (which I dont mind). I like the way Charulatha Ramanujam plays. She follows the main singer to the precise and yesterday was no difference. Neyveli Narayanan and Amrut gave a fantastic Tani Avartanam; one of the best I’ve heard in recent past.

VijaySiva – Nadasurabhi Annual Concert 14 Nov 2007

Vocal : N VijaySiva

Violin : Charulatha Ramanujam

Mrudangam : Bangalore S Praveen

Ganjira : Purushotham

Nadasurabhi Cultural Association 14th Annaul Music Conference.

I reached the venue late from Office and have missed initial 3-4 krithis.  I understand , these were rendered before my arrival..

1.Neranammi – Kaanada – Ramnad Srinivasa Iyengar

2.Paraakelanannu (N,S)-  Kedaragowlai –  Shyamashastri
N&S @ Hariharathulu pokadu paratpari
3.Maragatha maniVarna(A,N,S) –  Varali – Thyagaraja
N&S@Dharani thanayakuna premarasamu
4.Maayuranatham anisham Bhajami –  Dhanyasi – Dikshithar

When I reached the scene, ‘endukku peddala’ was going on.  This was the first time, I’m listening to Vijay Siva live. The neraval and swara of sankarabharanam was very good at the usual ‘vEdasasthra’.  I was in for a plesent surprise when he started Anandabhairavi as the main piece. In the last 100 odd concerts attended in Bangalore, I have never heard anyone singing Anandabhairavi as the main piece.  A rather short alapana, and a fast tanam. I like to listen to Anandabhairavi at a lower speed. Faster tanam did not go well with me.  Alapana, Tanam and Pallavi all were short for the initial build up. Overall, it was not the best.

Here are the list of songs after I reached the venue.

04 endukku peddala ( A, N, S ) – sankarAbharaNam – Thyagaraja

neraval @ ‘vEda sAsthra’

05 mariyAda gAdayya – bhairavam – Thyagaraja

06 RTP – Ananda bhairavi

Pallavi line  ” kamala vadani kamalA dala nayani kamalasadani’

Swaras in  sAranga , husEni , kadana kuthUhalam

06B  tani Avartanam

07 mAtADa bAradEno –  khamAs –  narahari dAsa ?

08 yentha cheluvage – karNataka devagAndhari(bhImplas) – Purandara Dasa

09 Slokam  ( mANikya vINAm) – Ragamalika

( shanmukhapriya,surutti , kalyANi , srI , madhyamAvathi, Arabhi..)

10 muddugArE yashOda – kurinji –  Annamacharya

11 cheli nEnEtlu – parAs – Chinnaiah ?

12 sIta kalyANa vaibhOgamE –  kurinji – Thyagaraja

( started at the anupallavi line ‘pavanaja stuti pAtra’ )
