Yeah, I thought I'd read LGJ had performed his final concert too. Maybe it was at the BBoard...

IMHO, Lalgudi's solo wasn't as phenomenal as his accompaniment. I sometimes find that he becomes a caricature of himself during his solo renditions, excessively stretching certain swarams for highlighting the bhavam. His accompaniment is however another matter. We have seen so many brilliant violinists (Mysore Nagaraj, Manjunath, Gayatri when she used to play, Akkarai Subhalakshmi) but there are hardly a few who can match Lalgudi's class. I repeatedly get goosebumps when I hear his quick repartees for Alathur bros or GNB. Even though he has taken his last bow from the concert circuit, his old recordings will give us solace.

No doubts about this. Shri LGJ was and is the greatest violinist who excelled more when he accompanied artistes. Was he inspired by them ? Was it the challenge ? The ability to exactly reproduce what they sang and even go further ? Unfortunately, with his seniority, you cannot expect him to play 'second fiddle' to artistes much younger than himself !

Thank you DRS. Didn't think of looking there/here :S lol

The LGJ trio altogether are quite good too. As strange as it may sound, the item I most look forward to in his concerts is/are LGJ thillana(s). Listening to him play at his senior level now (especially the thillanas), I feel I'm being transported into a dreamy kinda world...

The 4 raga RTP is available in the sangeethamshare site, It is a wonderful treasure worth possessing
Kiran surya I am aware of the guidelines of this thread it was a request made with the intention of knowing if any one had the recording. For ur inf I had the privilege of listening to a 4hr concert of lalgudi playing this piece elaborately I had a copy of the recording which is damaged beyond redemption

Sri Lalgudi has not accompanied any artiste in several years now. Does anyone know whom he accompanied last?

The case of the Perfect 10

Way back in 1976 , when reports of Nadia Comaneci's perfect 10 at the Olympics splashed all over, I was a bit puzzled by the expression -Perfect 10.
Sure I knew that there would be judges who would be scoring and taking averages , but in those days , when I did not have access to TV , it was difficult for me to comprehend the full meaning of the expression.
And so when I took my doubt to my Dad and asked what was the nearest other thing I could relate with a Perfect 10, he looked up from his paper , thought for a while , and said

' Maybe a Lalgudi Concert.That is the closest that I can think of " and went back to his paper.
Decades later , while listening to a KGS concert of 1981, I am reminded of those words.Here are a few tracks from that memorable concert.

Beautiful ragas in the padavarnam. Can anyone explain the meaning of this padavarnam? With my limited knowledge of Tamil, it looks more like a description of goddess Lalitha. Are there the navarasas really being expressed in the lyrics?

Pallavi expresses how mInAkshI was happy with her dik-vijayam, and anupallavi describes how on seeing the lord of Mt. kailAsh she felt overcome by love and coyness (because, she realized he was the ONE - the legend, when she appeared from the ceremonial fire as malayadhwaja pANDyan was performing the putrakAmEShThi, it was noticed that she had a supernumary mammary gland - a voice - asharIri - announced that it would disappear when she set eyes on the man she would marry - mInAkshi actually gets to Mt. kailAsh to conquer it, and defeats the shiva gaNas that are first sent to do battle with her, and finally shiva comes to do battle - but mInAkshi feels her extra breast disappear and is overcome by shringAra)...and so on and so forth...amazement (wonder) as she watched shiva destroy tri pura, kick yama, burn manmathan...laughed as she saw the whole world feel the swatch of the cane that hit shiva on his back, disgust at daksha for disrespecting her husband, fear as she saw halAhalam almost destroy her husband, compassion, like that of a mother to her devotees, and Lalgudi asks for the blessings of the SAnta swarUpiNi - the ever calm one.
