- G. N. Balasubramaniam - 4ACD
Live at Mysore -1957 with T.Chowdiah & C.S.Murugabhoopathy
G.N.Balasubramaniam, one of the greatest legends and superstars of Carnatic Music, enthralled and mesmerized the old and the young by his unique fluid voice and by his exceptional music. This magnificent concert showcases his refreshing and immaculate style of music impregnated with novel ideas, scintillating Brikas and striking Sangathis. His golden voice with its rich timbre captivates the listener beyond imagination. He was a trailblazer and his music is immortal. In this superb concert, he has rendered an enchanting Kalyani, followed by a beautiful composition of Thyagaraja. An imaginative portrayal of Suddha Saveri followed by his masterpiece Dharini thelusu with the cascade of Sangathis flowing like an endless river. A soul stirring Kanada followed by Sukhi Evaro add color to this concert. The highlight of this concert is a peerless rendering of RTP in the Raga Bhairavi. The Ragamalika Viruttam is exquisite. The combination of GNB and the legendary violinist from Karnataka, T.Chowdiah and the rapport they shared on stage was incredible. The accompaniments for this glorious concert are T.Chowdiah and C.S.Murugabhoopathy another legendary mridangam artist of yester years.
The raga delineations by both the legends are very explorative and complimentary to each other. The Thaniavarthanam gives a wholesome effect to this spell binding concert.
This concert is from the private collection of the GNB family.
