Sri Neyveli Santhanagopalan presented a nice concert with an experienced team of accompanists. dhEnukA, jayantasEnA and madyamAvati alapanas were especially good. The amazing artist Sri M.A. Sundaresan provided very good accompaniment on the violin. His individual raga essays were very melodious as well. If I remember correctly, the entire taniavartanam was in tisra naDai – two initial extended portions followed by koraippu, mOrA and kOrvai.
