Mr Srkris,

Many thanks. I would be grateful if you would kindly upload the entire concert minus this song. Trust I am not being greedy.

Bye,

Sorry for not responding earlier. I dont know whether it is right to upload an entire concert, that too here. Even if I did that, I would be able to do it after 15 days or so, since I'm a bit occupied now with other work. Hope I am not disappointing you.

MS, while speaking of her first concert in Music Academy in 1934, said:

"My first important performance as a singer was at the Music Academy in Madras. It was to be a full-fledged, three-hour concert before an audience of musicians, critics and music lovers. I was 18. I shivered and trembled before the event. Trying not to look at the listeners, I went up to the stage, sat down, checked the tuning of the tambura, and began.

Suddenly, my fears fell away. I sang with joy. Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar, a well-known singer, had been sitting at the back. He got up and came to the front row, loudly expressing his approval. Others too were quick to say "Bhesh! Bhesh!" and "Sabhash!" I treasure the words of the great veena player Sambasiva Iyer. He said, 'Subbulakshmi? She carries a veena in her throat!' . That concert at the Music Academy was a very big step for me -- a step towards a lifetime of singing. And of devotion and service through the pursuit of music."
