Audience bow to Chandrasekar, Bharathy

M Chandrasekar and Bharathy proved that bhakthi is an integral part of music.

Renowned violinist M Chandrasekar and his daughter Bharathy proved that bhakthi is an integral part of music at their concert at the Nanganallur Anjaneyar temple for Pavaman Annadhanam Trust on January 3, 2013.

The curtain raiser was ‘Vallabha Nayakasya’ in Begada, followed by a succinct sketch of Darbar for ‘Ramabirama’. Their rendition of the kriti was exemplary.

The father–daughter duo played ‘Anupamagunamudhi’ in Atana by Tyagaraja with elan. The violinists brought out the essence of Nalinakanthi in ‘Manavyalakim’ by Tyagaraja with grace.

Bharathy’s exhaustive alapana of Simhendramadhyamam, which was the piece de resistance, was creative. The kriti by Mysore Vasudevachariar – ‘Ninnenammithi’ - found meaning in their vivid portrayal. Father and daughter alternated by playing swaras which flowed like a woodland stream. Sometimes Chandrasekar sang a few lines so that the audience would know the song. He led us to Madurai Mani era by playing ‘Sarasa Samadana’ in Kapinarayani which was enjoyed by the audience.

Trichur Narendran on the mridangam was graceful and impressive.

Trichy Murali on the ghatam inundated the hall with his rhythmic inputs. Their tani had well-structured solkattus.
