In his MIT concert that I have, TVR often breaks out into swaras while singing raga alapanai. I've never heard people do this before, and he does it in a way that's quite educational because he even sings brigha sangathis with swaras and it's nice to be able to "visualise" the swara patterns that constitute a particular sangathi. Does TVR do this often in his concerts?

I have heard Voleti and Nedunuri sing swaras during the alaap. Listen to the revathi alapana of Voleti (Hyd concert) and Nedunuri's kalyani alapana sung in 1961 or 62?

Folks,

I used to own a TVR concert where he sang this magnificent kirthana of Purandaradasa in Sankarabharanam, with swaras followed by a grand thani:
enthA celuvage magaLanu koTTanu girirAjanu nODammamma

It was a Bombay concert I think, with an RTP in Sanmukhapriya, violin was M Chandrasekharan and mridangam was UKS. What made it even more special was that TVR had a bad sore throat that day and still managed a great concert.

Unfortunately the cassettes I had were completely ruined, and along with 50 other rare concerts I lost this one too. While I can recover some of the others I really would like to know if anyone has this particular krithi sung by TVR or this concert that I am referring to.

I dont normally post requests for songs or concerts but it would be great if someone can help with this.

:cool:
Yes indeed it is atleast excellent . If you did not tell me the artist name , I would have thought it was either young manakkAL rangarAjan (during lathAngi) and as young GNB(during marukelara-jayanthashri) and an undecided manakkAl(during mohanam alApanai) or GNB (during the krithi rendition of rA rA rAjeeva-mOhanam)

I am assuming he sang lathangi , jayanthasri and mOhanam in succession and was recorded continously in the tape.Maintaining this kind of kAlapramanam and vocal finesse is indeed very very noteworthy, this is a great trichur rAmachandran audio. TR-MSG- UKS(see how UKS lifts the concert in mohanam and tani) simply rocked.Not even a minute of sag.

I am assuming after mohanam as main ,with he going to senchukAmBODhi and bhairavam possibly there is a sure RTP. But he going to unnadiyE gAthi eNran aDaindhen in bahudAri (my favourite GNB as a composer) is still a good finish.WHo knows may be there was a RTP after that?

Friends,

Inviting you all to a 1974 concert of the Vidwan in Parvathi, Mysore http://chowdaiahandparvati.blogspot.com/. He is accompanied by Vidwans M. Chandrasekharan (Violin), Vellore Ramabhadran (Mridangam) and H.P Ramachar on the Khanjira.

We have also shown two contrasting photographs (a 1970 picture posted earlier when he visited "Parvathi") and a recent photo (borrowed from The Hindu on his 50 years of eminent service).

Thanks,,,,and please enjoy....

Sri TVR and his wife Charumathi are gems in the Carnatic music field.

He had a concert in Austin and i had the pleasure of their company for a couple of days. Mama is very friendly and down to earth. What I remember the most is after the concert and dinner when everyone else had retired to bed, he spoke of how he learned some songs from Sri Bhimsen Joshi. He also beautifully demonstrated many phrases in the Hindusthani style.

I hope they both get Sangeetha Kalanidhis soon.

This blog is a treasure/gem ! Thank you so much. I have been meaning to thank you forever for this yeoman service.

I agree with drohit on Shri Ramachandran. For many many years, we lived next street to him, and had the pleasure of his company on multiple occasions. His devotion to his guru GNB is matchless.

The quality that stands out most in his singing (to me) is "vistaaram" or expansiveness. I had a recording of a great private concert at a relative's residence where he sang the most wonderful (and elaborate) Madhyamavati, with Chandrasekharan Sir sabashing him million times. Sadly I lost the tape when i moved from Michigan to California.

His voice is so rich that it can carry really well even in a mikeless setting. Two incidents come to mind: one a brilliant concert in the CLT at IITM when the power went out, but he continued singing, and you couldn't even notice the difference, and the other when he sat down to sing in front of Periyaval (Jayendra Sarasvathi Svamigal) in Sankara School (I think) in Thiruvanmiyur where we could hear him clearly (its been many years now but i am almost certain there was no mike) despite all the commotion with other "festivities".

Sadly so many less deserving people have got the SK in recent years, while he (and so many others) has had to wait.

Sridhar.

THe song you are referring to is Paahimam Sree Vaageeswari in Kalyani- Second day Navarathri Kriti of Swati Thirunal. He has rendered this many times in the Navarathri Mandapom in his inimitable manner. If you want, I can share with you.

Rumour has it in Delhi that Trichur Ramachandran will be the Sangeeta Kalanidhi this year. Surprising how the grapevine has not started buzzing in Chennai.

Though very late, deserving vocalist of GNB school Trichur Ramachandran conferred with Sangeetha Kalanidhi was a very happy news to rasikas.
May God bless him with health. His Full Narayaneeyam recording in Ragamalika will speak volume about his caliber.
