Mandolin Shrinivas

Carnatic Musicians

The only difference in my opinion is the number of percussion accompaniment when he started his career and now. The concerts that were accompanied by Palghat Raghu, Karaikudi Mani, Srimushnam and likes at the start of his career was just spectacular. But over the time, the inclusion of a number of percussion instruments like the thavil, mridangam, ghatam etc (all in one platform) made it very loud and noisy (cacophony!). It is not because of the sound of mandolin, but the overall noise pollution! I am not sure what it is now.
I am sure if the percussions are restructed, it will be just awesome.
In my opinion even in a vocal/violin or a veena concert, more than 2 instruments make a concert sound very loud. For best results it should be mridangam and ghatam or mridangam and morsing.
All certain done, he is one of the most talented and gifted artists that CM has seen to date.

Was listening to some of his 1980's stuff again..... If I had to be lost in an island for the rest of my life, Srinivas's combo with Raghu mama is probably the only music I would hasten to bring.

A couple of days ago, Mandolin Srinivas turned 43!
Somehow I just can't get past thinking of him as an eternal 12 year old boy that rocked the world of music back in the early 80s.

Hi Cpblog

There is some thing wrong with the player. First there was inordinate delay in the start of the first song (varnam)..then there was another huge pause before the Siddhi vinayakam song...after that the player stopped. I played around with various buttons before it started again. But yet again it stopped playing. I gave up after that.

Would it be possible to look into this?

To the extent I heard, the music was great....he is a great artist indeed and exhibited that even at an early age..thanks for the postings.

Hi Sam,
We're sorry that you faced these hold-ups.
It is of course normal for the embedded flash player to take some time to cue up to the next track, especially if the present track is a long one. Otherwise in our repeated tests with various browsers, we have found no instance of a track freezing up. Connectivity quality at the listener's end could also sometimes pose some issues.
I will let CPBlog comment further.

Last saturday, 12th, I cleared my deck, did all my house chores (effectively gave no room for the mrs to grumble about any thing) and set my computer, adjusted the speakers and....lo and behold, I got to listen to a nice vioin concert with mandolin providing the accompaniment !!

Was it my computer or some thing wrong with the recording?

Any feed back from other mandolin rasikas?

Cheers

Sam

Dear Mr. Swaminathan,
Kindly listen to the concert again on CP blog and tell me if you find any problem. I am listening to the tracks on my headphones as I write this and find no problem...the Kharaharapriya is so beautiful...
Thanks
