I heard the first concert of Margazhi Maha utsavam concert series in Jaya TV that started on 16-12-2008. That was Kadri Gopalnath's concert. Violinist was Kanyakumari. She followed each and every movement of Kadri like a shadow.
The concert started with the Brisk Bahudari raga kriti of Tulasi vanam, Bhaja Maanasa vigneshwaram anisam. The mood was set perfectly. This served as a starter for the deep bhairavi raga swarajati of sri shyama sastri. Kamakshi Amba was rendered with more attention to the raga bhavam.
Amruthavarshini was the main item. The joyous nature of the raga was very well portrayed.
The final one was the soft kapi raga song by Papanasam Sivan, Yennathavam seidhane.
All together the concert was a good start for the festive season - Isai vizha.
