Concert Review:


Vidwan Anil Murthy  presented a brilliant concert  on Sunday, 16th September 2012 at the Indian heritage Academy Hall. He commenced the concert with a sedate presentation of the popular Mohana raga varnam Ninnu Kori. The artist then outlined the raga Gaulai and sang Pranamamyaham sri. A few impressive rounds of swaras followed. The next was Atana raga alapana, an oogabhoga and a Kanakadasara kriti  Baagilanu teredu. The popular Thyagaraja composition Manavinaalakinchara in Nalinakanthi led to the main pieces of the evening. Sri. Anil Murthy plunged into Varali raga alapana bringing out the raga bhava in totality . Muthuswamy Dikshitar's masterpiece Seshachala nayakam was presented in all its glory followed by neraval and kalpanaswarams at Aravinda patra nayanam. The main raga selected for the day was Shankarabharanam. The raga has a wide scope for elaboration and the artist brought out all the facets of the raga. Thyagaraja's Endukku peddala with neraval and swaram at Veda shastra purana was executed with great technical skill and artistry. The final piece was a beautiful Purandaradasara krithi Hoova tharuvara manege. A strong influence of the artist's guru Sri.T.N.Seshagopalan was perceptible throughout the concert.

Sri.Anil Murthy was accompanied by young Mathur Srinidhi on violin who impressed the audience with his competent following and imaginative raga returns. Percussion consisted of popular artist Sri. Jayachandra Rao and his disciple Anirudh Bhat both on mridangam. Vidwan H.S.Sudhindra, principal of Suswaralaya College, presenting the vote of thanks mentioned that the double mridangam was not new but had been used in concerts for over 50 years.
