A vocal concert of Calcutta Vijayaraghavan was held in Bhairavi Pondicherry on 23rd june . Neyveli Lalitha was the violinist and Varadan the mridangist. Here is the list:
Viriboni- bhairavi varnam
Sri Saraswathi – arabhi-(a)
Jagadhiswari- mohanam-(n, s)
Disciple of T.N.S, Vijayaraghavan’s swaraprasthara was fluent and his saariram prone to brigas. Predictably thodi was the best item of the concert when his voice opened up with desired ajutham.Neyveli Lalitha acquitted herself with poise and maturity. Her bowing was sweet.Varadhan with his mridangam added pep to the concert. Srichakra raja or suttum vizhichudar dhan as ragamalika would have conjured up memories of Maharajapuram in this concert which was sponsored by the trust to perpetuate his memory.
