The Hans India Concert Review Dated 9-11-2015 of Maharajapuram S. Srinivasan's SICA Hydebad Concert
He quickly rendered “Nee Bhajana Gana Rasikula” (Naayaki) and “Dudukugala Nanney” (Goula raga Pancharatna Krithi) both ofThyagaraja, with all the vivification of Sahityam, much to the delight of the audience. He sang Devaranamlu “NarayanaNarayana Ninne Naa Madey” (Suddha Dhanyasi), which was popularised by MS Subbulakshmi and dedicated to her. Ganesh Viswanathan (son of Srinivasan), gave vocal support with a synchronised voice.
The ragalapana and neraval’s too rendered by both of them were more appealing. In an order Srinivasan rendered“Bhuvaneswariya” (Mohana kalyani), “Vaananai” (keeravani), “Raghuvamsa Sudambhudhi” (Kadanakuthoohalam). The main item of the day was “Sivakameswareem Chinthayeh Hum” (Kalyani) of Deekshitulu both vocalists registered good ragalapana and swarakalpana. The accompanying instrumentalists MA Sundaresan (violin), C Ananthakrishnan (mridangam) and Nemani Somayajulu (ghatam) made the concert lively, showcasing their expertise on the relative instruments.
