2013 March 04 RamakrishnanMurthy CharulataRamanujam SrimushanamVRajaRao RanganathaChakravarthy

Ramakrishnan Murthy returned to back to Bangalore in a span of 3 days to present a detailed concert for kalOtsav festival @ oDukattur mutt.

Accompanied by stalwarts, I was in for a treat of complete concert as this sabha is known to start on time and offer a complete 3 hour slot for the artist to present his vidwat. Vid Ramakrishnan Murthy, in my view, made the best use of the opportunity. and I don't think I was disappointed at the end.

Here is a list of the songs presented in the evening.

The appetiser was presented in form of bEgaDa varna and a navagraha krithi for the day chandram bhaja mAnasa in asAveri. Both built the tempo for the proceedings for the evening

The shriranjani piece picked up the pace with a brisk swara pattern that was presented.

The first AlApana came in the form of dhanyAsi ( my another favourite..). Not so frequently heard kanulAra kanTi presentation demonstrated the vast reportire of the artist.

The sedate filler for vaZhi marai was compensated by marugElara. Wondering when will this compositon get a main stage ?

The ever grand shaNkarAbharNa was presented in much detail to last for around 30 minutes. endku peddala emelisshed with nereval and swaras lasted equally long. The stalwart took over to present a 30 minute tani.

Tail pieces quickly occupied the next 30 minutes, with mridangist dominating the decisions on proceedings. It is still early stages for Vid Ramakrishnan Murthy, but with his talent and dedication, I look forward for days where he is command of the proceedings on the stage.
