This was my second concert of the new year day and a cracker of a concert it was !!  Everything in it was so nice, be it the bahudAri kalpana swarams, the pantuvarALi alapana, the moving rentition of “ranganAyakam”, the AbhOgi alapana or the pallavi that followed. Sri Mysore V. Srikanth followed TNSK very well. Sri B. Ganapatiraman and Sri K.V. Gopalakrishnan provided very soothing accompaniment for the songs playing with a lot of sowkhyam.

The audio in the hall was very poor in the beginning but it improved later towards the end of the second song.
