In this violin solo album Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi begins with a varnam in Devamanohari, her own composition, and ends with a thillana in Durga, a composition of her Guru and father Sri Lalgudi Jayaraman. The Begada kriti 'Kadaikkan' is the central piece. Known for her soulful playing, she has presented the Dikshitar kriti 'Neerajakshi' with leisure and repose. Adding colour are an Ashtapathi and a Devarnama.
Vijayalakshmi's Begada, Hindolam and Kanthamani raga elaborations highlight their interesting contours and subtle nuances, and breathe freshness into them. Sri Patri Satish and K V Gopalakrishnan have given masterly accompaniment throughout, and have presented a brilliant tani avartanam in Misrachapu.
