1) Review : Bombay Jayashri Ramnath and Unnikrishnan : A night of Solo Classical Music Exploration In aid of Stepping Stones Home:

Bombay Jayashri Ramnath and Unnikrishnan : A night of Solo Classical Music Exploration - In aid of Stepping Stones Home - Saturday, 6 March 2004 - Civic Centre, Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA (A presentation of Raaga’s Music, with the Rotary Club of Bangsar)

Ist Half

Vocal: Bombay Jayashri Ramnath
Violin : RK Shriramkumar
Mridangam : K Arun Prakash
Kanjira : TD Rajagopal
Song List:
  1. Bhaja Manasa (Bahudari, Adi, Tulasi Vanam)
  2. Teliya Leru Rama (Denuka, Adi, Thyagaraja) – K/Swarams at Pallavi Line
  3. Tillai Chidambaram (Poorvikalyani, Misrachapu, Gopalakrishna Bharathi)- Raagam, k/Swarmas at Pallavi Line (Thillai..)
  4. Sakala Graha (Atana, Khandachapu, Purandara Das)
  5. Shankaracharyam (Shankarabharanam, Adi, Subbarama Dikshitar) – MAIN PIECE : Raaga, Neraval and Swaras at Parama followed by Thani.
  6. Bhajan (didn’t catch details!)
  7. Thillana (Lalgudi Jayaraman Composition)

A wonderful build up to the main piece. First 4 songs kept getting better. Pporvikalyani was a delight..and song rendered with much bhava. By the time she got to the main piece in and she announced that Main piece was to be in Sangkarabaharanam, audience expectiations were high. Main piece was thus a bit of a let down, as it felt quite rushed and half explored.

AKS was brilliant on the violin and for the Poorvikalyani and Sangakarabharanam pieces.

2nd Half
Vocal: Unnikrishnan
Violin : RK Shriramkumar
Mridangam : K Arun Prakash
Kanjira : TD Rajagopal
Song list:
  1. Inthamodi (Varnam, Saaranga, Adi, Thiruvottriyur Thyagarajar)
  2. Deva Deva (Mayamalavagoulai, Rupakam, Swathi Thirunal) – Raaga, Neraval and Swaram at Jata Roopa.
  3. Pirava Varam (Lathangi, Adi, P. Sivan)- Lengthy Rendition of Raaga, Swarams.
  4. Karthikeya Gangeya (Thodi, Adi, P.Sivan) – MAIN PIECE – Extensive elaboration of Raaga, followed by Raaga and Neraval at Vel Maruvu..
  5. Krishna Nee Begane (Vyasaraya)
  6. Thillana (Hamsanadi, Adi, Calcutta KS Krishnamurthy)
  7. Mangalam

It was clearly Unnikrishnan’s night. Absolutely fantastic renditions all! Beautiful elaborations of Lathangi and clear crisp swara passages followed. He clearly held the audience in awe for his main piece as there was pin drop silence whilst he took Thodi to new heights! Neraval and Swaras in Thodi were stunning ..with good chemistry between the Unni and AKS. The Thani too was a delight, and held the audience attention til the end… (not a single person walked out!!!!) A sigh of disappointment rippled through the audience when he announced his last piece, clearly wanting him to sing more (although it was already 12.30 am!!!) Most of the audience we already on their feet before he could finish his Mangalam for a truly much deserved standing ovation.
