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..)

  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

Violin : RK Shriramkumar
Mridangam : K Arun Prakash
Kanjira : TD Rajagopal
Song list:

  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.

7) A Technical Introduction - Shruthi: .....even in Carnatic, we have 12 notes in the octave, even though they are referred to by 16 names.....If we assign R1, R2 & R3 to the three possible Rishaba notes and G1, G2 & G3 to Gandhara notes, the actual pitch of R2 is same as that of G1 and R3 is same as that of G2. So, instead of 6 possible notes between Sa and Pa, we only have 4 (R1, R2 or G1, R3 or G2, G3).....
