Vid. Amritha Murali once again gave a very enjoyable concert. I reached the concert venue late when Vid. Hemalatha was playing a good pantuvarALi alapana. The bEgaDa alapana by the singer was really good and so were the brief hamIrkalyANi outline and the detailed sAvEri alapana. Vid. Hemalatha’s alapanas of these ragas were also very enjoyable and neatly presented. Both “venkaTashaila” and “srI rAjagOpAla” were sung with a lot of involvement. Neraval was done in “srI rAjagOpAla” at “smErAnana sEvaka chaturAnana nArAyaNa tAraka divyanAma”. The ending kOrvai in the kalpanA swaram was a slightly improvised version of the kOrvai that is usually put for this song (the one that begins with ‘sa rI ga sa rI’) . The uttarAngam part was the one different from that of the usual kOrvai.

Sri Ganapatiraman was his usual self playing very beautifully for all songs almost as if singing along on his mrudangam. He played a taniavartanam in Adi tALam that comprised the chatusra and tisra naDais.
