Dear Coolkarni, None of the links you have kindly given are active. I could not activate anything to enjoy Lalgudi's music What is the problem?


A RTP in Dharmavathi ..

http://rapidshare.de/files/12183230/01- ... i.mp3.html

Much later As I started to appreciate the Old masters progressively , one thing remained constant.Since lalgudi had been accompanying them all , my own appreciation of his artistry was growing continously.
And I have been continously amazed at his ability to take accompaniment to such great heights.

So here is a capsule of the tracks from some of the finest concerts I have with lalgudi as an accompanying artist.Hope you will all enjoy as much as I have done.

To start with
a track with MDR
http://rapidshare.de/files/12176525/02- ... m.mp3.html

a track from that all time great AIR broadcast with MM Iyer and Palani Subr pillay

http://rapidshare.de/files/12187267/05- ... _.mp3.html

Next GNB
a breathtaking track - his final response to GNB's swara prasthara is one of my favourites.

http://rapidshare.de/files/12209157/03- ... i.MP3.html

The same krithi , but now with GNb's disciple Kalyanraman

http://rapidshare.de/files/12224651/10- ... i.MP3.html

A lovely rendering with Chembai

http://rapidshare.de/files/12210283/04- ... a.MP3.html

Somu-Lalgudi- a combination in a class of its own

http://rapidshare.de/files/12214035/07- ... 1.wma.html
http://rapidshare.de/files/12215485/06- ... t.mp3.html

Next Nednuri-Lalgudi

A combination I was lucky enough to listen in a Live Concert

http://rapidshare.de/files/12221726/08- ... a.mp3.html

A lilting track with TMThyagarajan
http://rapidshare.de/files/12231939/11- ... a.mp3.html

and to close the first part of this capsule a track from a concert of TMt's Guru .

After his final round of swaras, Semmangudi watches Lalgudi decide not to play a response and close the the song.He then goads him and says "play on, man"
after a brief pause Lalgudi starts a detailed response , an outstanding one..

What is the problem?
You came in a few years late , perhaps. ;(
Time rolls on .Even Rapidshare does not halt in its tracks . And so these links expire. :(
We can always revive them again - with sufficient interest

Respected Rasikas,

We join in with you all, throughout the world and all throughout this year, from our pages of the "Parvathi" Blog http://chowdaiahandparvati.blogspot.com/ in celebrating Vidwan Sri Lalgudi Jayaraman's 80th Birthday.
(As you respond to his gracious presence today you may want to draw a contrast with a younger memory of him as he was in the 60's (nevertheless in his heyday), through a new B&W photograph posted).

With our respects.

VSM - KVRamani
Please give me some time to pick out such tracks again.
That rapidshare phase was a pretty old one. I remember we stopped using rapidshare when its site also started pointing to ads from 'girls in our respective cities asking for dates " and we all ran away from rapidshare . Anyway mediafire has proven to be a stable site for upload and this time around the tracks should stay longer. even 10% of the free time I enjoyed
earlier.will still try and find some time and upload.Not in this vaggeyakara section though .

Not sure if your question has been answered hitherto

If you are referring to the concert which has Reethigoula varnam, Goula, Kannadagoula and followed by the Lalgudi Pancharathnams,
then the accompaniments are Lalgudi Srimathi (violin), Umayalpuram K Sivaraman(Mrudangam), Alangudi Ramachandran (Ghatam)

Post by hnbhagavan » 20 Feb 2013, 19:10

H N Bhagavan from Bangalore

I glanced thru the program lists of Music Academy which is updated only till year 2008,Sri Lalgudi G Jayaraman( post 1985 ) got very few chances at the Music Academy.
During 1985 - 2007 till he was performing,the concerts of Lalgudi Jayaraman violin concerts are very few compared to the chances given to others.
As long as Lalgudi Jayaraman was an accompanist,He was featured every year.
Mylapore Fine Arts featured Sri Lalgudi on every new year day and tradition is kept up by featuring Lalgudi siblings.

It is unfortunate that while he was in prime as main Violin performer,Academy did not give his due chances to perform in the academy.

It is another matter that Music Academy honored Sri Lalgudi with life time achievement award recently in lieu of Sangeetha Kalanidhi award.

It is a matter of great pride that Bangalore Gayana Samaja honored Sri Lalgudi with the title Sangeetha Rathnakara.He was the first receipient Chowdiah award from Academy
at Bangalore.

My student Ankitha's tribute to Lalgudi Mama!

Memories everywhere
You've disappeared into thin air
Don't know what to say
Feeling lost and lonely
Not having you here with me

You're in my heart every passing day
Your legends, your legacies will live forever
The discoveries you've made will live forever

Oh where did you go
You're watching somewhere from above
I'll never be alone
As long as I can feel the love

You'll never fade from our hearts
You'll always be in the light
Your memories will never part
My mind, my life
No matter if you're not here for real
You're memory lives in our hearts
But everyday we think about how you left
Like you were gone with the wind
Gone with the wind
Gone with the wind
— with Sujatha Gopal.

Dear friends
On the birthday anniversary of Sri Lalgudi Jayaraman, I am listening to the 1973 Calcutta concert CD especially the RTP in Dharmavati. I bought this CD set on the suggestion from Mahavishnu.
The recording quality is excellent and the mridangam is really caressing.
Lalgudi is changing the ragas in the RTP:
1. Dhanyasi
2. Begada
3. Saveri
4. Nasikabhushani
5. Kalyanavasantha
6. Kanada
7. Sindhubhairavi (he plays four-plus octaves of Hindustani style swaras!)

I also ordered the "Incurable Romantic" online.

Can someone shed more light on this?

"..On Thursday, Ilayaraja realised the late violinist had composed a keerthana in the ragavarthini raga, the inspiration for which came from his own composition on goddess Meenakshi of Madurai.

... Ilayaraja said, long ago, he had sung his keerthana — manamurugi unnai — for the violin maestro during Navrathri celebrations at his house. “He meticulously listened to every swaram of the song and appreciated my efforts. Today, I am proud to know that my song had inspired him. But I am not qualified to speak of his greatness,” said Ilayaraja.

----------

Have anyone heard LGJ's composition in ragavardhini and Ilayaraja's manamurugi unnai?

Regarding the raga, rAgavardhini ( rAgacUDAmaNi - MD ) is the 32nd melakartha ( vivAdhi with R3 and G3 ) More details here: http://karnatik.com/c1788.shtml
The song 'kalangAdE manamE' is attributed to Koteeswara Iyer. I see this song in one of Lalgudi GJR Krishnan's commercial CD.
Here is BMK's rendition of the raga, though a different song, for reference as to how this raga sounds like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHGaSz9fLSI
