Raga Ratnakaram







Raga alapana is the acid test for Carnatic vocalists and instrumentalists and it is in the exposition of ragas that the individuality and maturity of the musician finds expression. Raga vinyasa is manodharma sangeetham which can make the musical sensitivity of the artist paint a glorious image of the melody.

Nedunuri Krishnamurthy is well known for his multi-faceted talents as a vocalist, tunesmith, teacher and a researcher. His raga expositions have adhered to classical values. Nedunuri offers elaborate portrayals of Sahana, Begada, Thodi, Bilahari, Surutti and Bhairavi in this triple disc album. The names of the accompanists are not mentioned but the experienced ears can easily identify the mesmerising quality of Lalgudi Jayaraman’s accompaniment in the third disc for Sri Venkatagirisham. His alapana of Surutti and highly intellectual kalpanaswaras are a sheer delight to listen to.

Canvas of creativity







Ambujam Krishna was a multi-lingual composer. The bhakti element stood out in her compositions. Many stalwarts including Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, Musiri Subramania Iyer, K.R. Kedaranathan, T.N. Seshagopalan, Ananthalakshmi Sadagopan and Charumathi Ramachandran have set her compositions to music which feature fairly regularly in cutcheris these days. Dr. S. Ramanathan was yet another stalwart who can be credited with having tuned a sizeable number of Ambujam Krishna’s compositions in rakthi and vivadhi ragas.
