Featuring Madurai T N Seshagopalan in "Parvathi", Mysuru 197

#77  Postby cpblog » 31 Oct 2010 17:54

Dear Rasikas,

With Deepavalli at our doorsteps, we thought it was time to feature a 70's concert by the eminent Sangeeta Kalanidhi Vidwan Sri T N Seshagopalan from "Parvathi" in Mysuru . In this concert he is supported wonderfully by Vidwans Chalakudy Narayanaswamy, Tanjore Upendran and Sosale Sheshagiri Das.

Please enjoy and wishing you all happiness in music and in the lighting of the Lamps!

Venkatakailasam,

Thanks for a fantastic collection of articles on the eminence of the Vidwan!
"A Pink Floyd fan strays into a T. N. Seshagopalan concert and comes back converted". There couldn't have been a better caption to express the power of his music.

Thanks also for the wonderful clip on T. Chowdiah in Youtube (also mentioned in the forum on Chowdiah).

Thank you Sir. I am a regular visitor to your site to listen to some of his solo

renderings. The stillness of the night with a low volume will provide a heaven like feeling.

Looking at the photo appears as a review of TNS kathakalakshebham but reading the review appears more like a regular concert. Would love to hear that samaja varagamana that the reviewer has mentioned.

Harimau said wrote:I heard Sri T N Seshagopalan sing Kapi in a 3-hour long one-raga-one-krithi concert but then Seshagopalan is probably the only artist today who can pull it off.



Harimau also said wrote:I heard Sri T N Seshagopalan sing Kapi in a 3-hour long one-raga-one-krithi concert but then Seshagopalan is probably the only artist today who can pull it off.

It was a concert held at Mylapore Fine Arts Club auditorium some 6 years ago. Sri M Chandrasekaran was the violinist. I don't think it was ever released as a DVD or CD.

Most likely, this concert too was sponsored by Mudhra.

A couple of days before the concert, the word leaked out that the raga chosen would either be Kapi or one major raga (whose name escapes me) which would have given great scope for elaboration. But TNS proved that, in a master's hands, there is nothing like a minor raga!

Indeed right Harimau - But I am not sure if he indeed sang for 3 full hours (even assuming there was a 30 mins tani).

There is this brief writeup of Saroja ramanujan - quoting verbatim below

saroja madam writes as below:

12-11-2006-Mudra- One raga one krthi concert-Naradaganasabha
The raga taken was Kapi and TNS sang the krthi 'inthasoukyamanine' of Thyagaraja.
THose who heard the concert that day was really fortunate because the kapi raga was 'KA API'raga, meaning something that could not be described in words."kapi" or "kopi" in sanskrit besides meaning something or someone also used to denote something wonderful that cannot be described in words. The kapi that day was so exquisite that to describe it in usual terms as a kumbakonam degree kapi etc will be a gross understatement!

'Inthasoukyamanine' was rendered with such skill and imagination that made the audience exclaim with Thyagaraja ;inthasukyamanine , entho emo evariki thelusuno.

Radha bhaskar
Can you clarify as to how long he sang without the tani the kapi one raga one krithi in that mudhra concert.Did he also sing any other varnam or vathapi before Kapi . I am still keeping my fingers crossed to know if TNS indeed sang for 3 hours - may be 2 hours inclusive of 20 mins tani is what I am assuming .Can you clarify please ?

Also is there a recording available for commercial purchase for the kapi - one raga one krithi . I adore TNS kapi -even when doing ragamaliga swaras there is usually a likely kapi burst which is just out of the world.

TNS has had 3 chances to sing one raga one krithi - todi,kambodhi and kApi. I vaguely recollet tns singing todi in mudhra when it was held in the hotel near valluvarkottam - before they moved to rkm school atleast 10 years back.Is that right also right radha - my memory is bit hazy?

Thanjavooran sir..

As regards, Listening and appreciation of Music…..
The rasikas or listeners, having yearning for classical music, crave for blissful moments to derive total satisfaction. They give time, take efforts and are committed to appreciation of music.
One has to first like to hear and appreciate music.. Appreciation, good support to music, is restricted here unfortunately, because of elitist leanings….and personal equations…..
A true rasika is one who has to give undivided attention, with no bias or distractions of any kind, to receive the music and experience…the bliss…..

It is rare to see rasikas like you and CRama..

VK Sir, Thanks for the themmangu song by TNS. I had not heard this earlier from any vocalist although I had heard it in flute and nadaswaram. TNS has sung it beautifully in his inimitable style.
Sir, I requested you for some USrinivas. Just reminding.

Smt. Nithyashree has sung this in a commercial CD several years ago. IIRC, it's a composition of Sri HKMB, attesting to his versatility as a composer. I'd like to understand more about the setting of this temmAngu...obviously, sundaran sEr peNamaNi is mInAkshi - so, who is the narrator? Is it another woman who is confessing to mInAkshI that she's lost her heart to Siva (pari koDuttEn yen manadai)?
