Though I heard completely contrasting views with mine right after the concert, my opinion about this concert hasn’t changed. I really liked this concert. The Harikambhoji, Jayantasena swarams and Purvi Kalyani were all too good. I wished there had been a neraval for Paripurna Kama. But it was more than compensated by the Kharaharapriya, every moment of which was awesome. I was so happy to hear TMK’s Kharaharapriya after a long time. The Tani Avartanam was good too. After a soft and pleasing Behag piece, Idhudhaano Tillai, the Khamas tillana was a bit too loud!

    Sathej,Haven’t you figured that ALL concerts of SS & TMK get rated the least as “good” :))

    Hey Aparna,not sure if you mentioned in your memoirs…… why you’ve the fixation on SS & TMK? Is it the best first- impression thing that you didn’t find others’ singing not as fascinating??

    Oh I see

    Of course, they get that rating. 😛 After all, it’s only because I find almost all their concerts to be at least good that I keep going for more and more concerts of theirs.

    You can always check my memoirs to get the answers for your questions. 😛

    Btw, did you come for this concert? If yes, then how did you like the concert?
