Its seems that the speed has been screwed up - too fast, which means that the pitch is increased

Respected Rasikas,

For all die hard fans of Dr. M.L. Vasanthakumari, we feature her in her 1964 Gowri-Ganesha festival performance at "Parvathi", Mysuru. With the impending week of 'Vidyarambham', Saraswati Puja and Vijaya Dashami we thought in a remembrance of her old songs and of the very great personality that she was.

Please enjoy our new posting at http://chowdaiahandparvati.blogspot.com/.

cpblog,
Your Parvati concerts are a pleasure to listen to. This navarAtri is special in that you bring to us the culture of Parvati--horticulture too! The stories you tell are reflective of the true ambience of the place. However great the music, if the surroundings, the hospitality of the hosts and the listening fervor in the audience is not there, the magic of music is not realized fully.. Of course, the rasikA minds also need to have an ambience within to relish the music without a sense of the self--at least in those moments of bliss.
Once again, thanks. Now to the music of the great MLV!
---------
What a concert! A detailed AndOlika, and that kharaharapriya.
Thanks again for the nAvaratri special, though the concert was a gowri-ganEsa special. The pallavi line was chosen by her for the occasion!

Arasi,

Your mind and words are as keen as an X-ray which zaps everything. We can only bow to you. Thanks!

Thanks for your kind words, but bowing to me will perhaps be too much because my name (arasati?) belies my status in life--a commoner ;)

Absolutely incredible Kharaharapriya! Thought I caught a quick sruti-bheda beginning at ~ 32:51 as MLV gushes in and out, back to Kharaharapriya. Couldn't identify the raga though with my limited capabilities!

Awesome that I would bump into this post after reading about her guru GNB's penchant for envisioning gopucha yati kalpanaswaras. Because in a commercial release with the Revathi RTP, MLV sings a lovely Kharaharapriya follwed by P Sivan's "Srinivasa" and sings her own gopucha yati kalpanaswaram at breakneck speed!

She's started the Tanam as I type, so will go and listen in silence...

Dear Sri Anandmurty,

Thank you, sir. This concert is very special to the "Parvathi" family and also we got a great feedback after posting it.

You will appreciate that the ravages of time had rendered the recording from 1964 somewhat incomplete, but the music is so great that we just wanted to share it.

You're right that MLV thinks of doing grahabheda at that point. But being a very spontaneous artiste, she moves on with the main raga.

Kharaharapriya lends itself to grahabheda very well. Ri- Todi, Ga- Kalyani, Ma- Harikhambhoji, Pa- Natabhairavi and Ni-Shankarabharana. Where MLV pauses, she could have branched off into Kalyani.

On the net, among various articles about this great singer, we found this:

"She had the natural flair for rendering ragams. She would handle ragams like Kalyani, Todi, Bhairavi, Kharaharapriya, Latangi, Harikambodi, Kambodi, Keeravani, Purvikalyani, Shanmukhapriya, Shankarabharanam, Madhyamavati, Shuddasaveri effortlessly and render them with full of raga bhavam. She was adept in grahabhedam or modal shift. She used to glide through easily from the main ragam to the derived ragam. Unless, a musician had strong grasp of the basics and was quick thinker, it is difficult to do grahabhedam in a concert setting. In a lec-dem situation, grahabhedam can be handled at leisure."

Wishing you many more musical delights during this auspicious season.

Dear Rasikas,

From your thrilling weekend with World Cricket, we wish to draw you unto the thrilling world of Dr. M.L. Vasanthakumari via this spectacular concert that she gave at "Parvathi", Mysore on April 8, 1971, coinciding with her felicitation for the Sangeetha Natak Academy Award. It was incidentally, the Navami celebrations of Lord Sri Rama, too.

Welcome to an event 40 years later! @ http://chowdaiahandparvati.blogspot.com/

That was indeed wonderful :)
Thank you Kedharm for the timely reminder on the 83rd birth anniversary of the legend.
I thought it appropriate to post this picture of Sri Sadasivam and Smt MS calling on Smt MLV on her 60th birthday to greet her and present her with a saree. :)
