Music season 2009

  • Shashank performed an excellent concert yesterday. He asked the audience " I am going to play varnam. Do you want Kambodhi or Sankarbaranam?" Audience responded unanimously for Kambodhi and he obliged.

  • Similarly after doing Aalaapna in Kalyaani, He wanted audience to say whether they want Eathavunaara or RTP and the response was for RTP and he performed.

  • The percussion artists are placed in a dilemma now a days when these concerts are to be completed in two hours. Parupalli phalgun and Dr. S. Karthik had to play aavardhanam together and finish it within five minutes.

  • T. M. Krishna and Sangeetha sivakumar really performed a fantastic Jugalbandhi singing together most of the songs.

  • Their RTP with 14 raaga aalaapnas and Sri viswanatham as Pallavi and 14 kalpana swarams apart from swaras in the krithi, was fantastic.

  • Hats off to Akkarai Subhalakshmi ( in violin) maintainig the Sruthi for both of them without any adjustments.

  • She was not given any breath, since she had to accompany both T.M.Krishna and Sangeetha's Kalpana swarams alternatively, as each one was performing different raagaas.

  • The final touch was taken from stanzas from Shaakunthalam as Viruththam followed by "Premaiyil" from the movie "Sakunthalai" (sung by G.N.B and M.S. S)with perfect carnatic mood.
