I was eagerly waiting for this concert :). It was really a wonderful concert where you presented both rare and well heard krithis in the right proportion. The crisp alapana of arabhi and the quick second speed swaras for nadha sudha rasam pilanu was excellent. A special mention on the wonderful(though small :-( I was expecting a detailed alap) vagadheeswari alapana. The krithi was also very well rendered. Kharahara Priya ,the centre piece of the concert was well rendered where you unhurriedly built up the raga piece by piece in which you wove in some nice Akhara pidis. The delineation of this raga by Mysore Srikanth on the violin was very well done and appreciated. Srinivasa Thava, the often unheard krithi of Papanasam Sivan was sung at a swift pace. You etched out a detailed neraval and ended with appropriate Kalpanaswarams. Finally the thukkada's were really a treat for the grand finale of the concert.

It would be really nice if you could post the lyrics of Bhogachchaya and srinivasa tava krithis.

Thank you once again for presenting the often unheard krithis in sabhas.
