Review of the Event – January 2018
Sri Kartikeya Gana Sabha organized Smt. Duddu Venkata Seshamma Memorial Endowment concert under the Monthly Music Program series on 7th January 2018 at Kowtha Swarajya Vihar, Padmarao Nagar, Secunderabad. The program featured two concerts. First, a Vocal concert by Kum. Akshara Parashar (U.S.A) and followed by a Veena Concert by Sri V L Narayana, Hyderabad.
In the first concert, Kum. Akshara Parashar, a young and promising Vocalist from USA & a disciple of Dr. Duddu Radhikka gave an impressive performance. She has a gifted voice and a good sense of modulation. Her Kharaharapriya raga essay for ‘Prakkala Nilabadi’ of Sadguru Thyagaraja was captivating and the neraval & Kalpanaswaras stood in testimony of her traditional musical schooling. Meera Bhajan presented as the concluding number of the concert was extremely melodious. Sri K Srinivas on the Violin & Sri Rahul Sundar on the Mridangam let good support to the Vocalist
The Second concert of the evening featured a Veena recital by Sri V L Narayana of Hyderabad, a senior and a versatile Veena Vidwan. He hails from a family of Musicians and is the son & disciple of Vainika Vidwan Sri V L Janakiram, Tirupathi. He is currently working with All India Raido, Hyderabad as the staff Artiste. Narayana specializes in presenting rare krithis in rare ragas and also in Graha Bhedam. In his concert, he stood to his reputation and presented a rare krithi of Thyagaraja in the raga Simhanaadam. He has a very unique finguring style and plays the instrument with great ease. His presentation of the raga Hamsanadam for the popular number ‘Bantu reethi koluvu’ is a good example of his musical knowledge and command over the instrument. The take away from the concert was his RTP in the raga Subhapantuvarali where he did the grahabhedam of each note. The raga Alapana was well structured & Tanam was melodiously rhythmic. The neraval and the Swarakalpana too were brilliant and reflected his musical legacy. Sri Pavan Singh on the violin proved to be a able support for the Vainika and excelled in his solo turns. Sri P Vidya Sagar on the Mridangam & Sri Rahul Sundar on the Ghatam were supportive and their thani avarthanam was note worthy.
