I enjoy listening to Ganesh Kumaresh's semi-classical / fusion pieces. I am looking for their rendition of the Navarasa series. It would be great if someone can email them to me

Narcot,

Pl refer to the "rules"

No recordings of current artists since they are very likely to be copyrighted.

Can we assume that the brothers do not render serious/quality CM?

Of course you can't assume that...

I have attended one concert of the Ganesh-Kumaresh duo, and had mixed feelings about their concert. I absolutely enjoyed the elaborate RTP they played in Nattai, with brother after brother taking turns to paint a moving portrait of the raga. However, in other parts of the concert, the brothers appeared to be competing with each other for speed, and music emerged the loser in that competition. I did like the innovation where one brother would sing the sahithyam to a piece line by line, and another would follow it on the violin.

Recently I had a chance to attend G & K's concert after several years. It was a nice concert - except for one mish-mash of Tyagaraja kritis ( A number of pallavi's of Tyagaraja's kritis played as a string) - What is this called? A pallavi-mAlika :rolleyes: ?

This was the first time I heard such a rendition - I have read reports of similar experiments by Smt Aruna Sayeeram too.

This duo's postive points are.. knowing the CM very well. Explain the meaning of kriti and the beauty of kritis is not, normally, presented by anyone, But they make it a point to explain is really a welcome note. Expert in vocal too. Their recent Jaya TV show was an example. Not seen any other "Violin Brothers" who are so famous like them
They have to stop "Kunnakkudi" style of playing violin, sometimes.

I fully agree with this well-drafted comment. Many a time I have felt that the talented duo tend to dilute their rendition by resorting to different games, neck-breaking speed on the instrument, and similar experiments.

An inspiring article on T S rAjagopalan(dad of ganesh-kumaresh). Moving from kerela , kanpur,delhi,bombay ,madras and finally settling in thanjAvur all along not losing the passion is just great.

Music gets silver lining...

MUSIC Ganesh and Kumaresh, the acclaimed violin duo, earn many laurels for their music for the film, Lessons in Forgetting...

"As you enter Kumaresh’s house you hear the strains of Tyagaraja’s “Nannu Ganna Talli Naa Bhagyama”. “It’s the rare Sindhu Kanada raga,” alternating between vocal and violin, Kumaresh explains to his student how each phrase gets enriched from its previous one. Kumaresh with his brother Ganesh, the renowned violin duo who were hailed as child prodigies, have been associated with classical music for four decades. They are now hopping platforms across the globe to take Indian music to all corners. Their musicality is non-judgmental and open, and accepts techniques and approaches, even those that are not intrinsic to Carnatic classical. It is their ever-ready-to-discover-more attitude that has helped their musical persona step beyond the classical mould to bag the Independent Film Festival’s Award for Best Original Music Score for the Indian-English film Lessons in Forgetting directed by Unni Vijayan; the story based on Anita Nair’s book. The film has won the National Award and several accolades at various international film festivals. “Unni kept telling us that at most of the film fest screenings the music score had come in for a lot of attention and praise, but bagging an award on the Indian soil is gratifying,” says Ganesh."
