A melodious recital from the very old and fragile-looking but still in form Sri Ramani. To me the best part of the concert was when Sri Ramani beautifully delineated the raga kIravANi. It was a totally unhurried approach. It would have been good if at least some kind of announcement had been made by the artists regarding the compositions they were playing. It would have helped the audience at large enjoy the concert better.
