A share from my friend

From G N B's brother


I would like to share an anecdote relating to MLV.

My brother GNB's eldest daughter Jayalaksmi's marriage was fixed, I think , in 1959/60. She was literally crazy of MLV. and MLV never left our house whenever she visited us for learning music, without spending some time with her. My brother, immediately fixed his MANASIKA Guru Ariyakydi's concert for the reception.

When MLV came to know of the marriage, she told my brother that she will sing for her reception. My brother had to tell her about the concert already fixed. She immediately said, " What if? Let him sing as usual at 6 PM reception and I will sing in the night at 9PM. My brother readily consented , to his daughters great delight.

Needless to say, both the performances were extra-ordinarily superb and when the function was over, when all of us, family members went to the Dining hall at 12.30AM, there was nothing left except for rice, Vathakuzhambu and Curd rice. The big pandal at Edward Elliot's road was overflowing with rasikas .

This is yet another instance to show her dedication to her Guru as also the spontaneous warmth and affection she had for all of in our family. A lovable personality indeed, whose memory we very fondly cherish.

What a musician. Here she is at it again - seems a all GNB song concert @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IemyWwHVhSQ

Prakash Narayan Rao's youtube is a treasure trove indeed!

Thanjavooran,
A big thanks! The lady (a true one) is remembered for her large heart and kind ways by many and this from her guru's family is precious...

Sankark,
We miss you and Sridharang in the KavithaigaL forum :( Thanks for bringing PNRao's offering here to us. Listening to it now...

There was a video that runs for just 5 minutes of a performance of MLV of a composition of Sri.Muthuswamy Dikshidar 'Pahimam Parvatim Parameswarim' in the raga Mohanam and this was available in the YouTube for sometime but is not available now.

If anyone has a copy of this available with him, may please upload again and give the link.

Did Smt. MLV ever sing "Eppo Varuvaro" (Gopalakrishna Bharathi, Jonpuri)? If so, if anyone could post a link, that would be much appreciated!

Sincerely,
Bhaskar

+1 (as many as possible again).

Ended up through this topic in one of MLV's concert. And the first song is thEdith thEdi - posted the lyrics @
http://www.rasikas.org/forums/viewtopic ... 11&t=27890. Where did she find these gems? Did she tune/notate them or she learnt on her own from notations?

sarvAntaryAmi - perhaps MA concert for the centenary bi-centenary of Thyagaraja - again she seems to be the only one to have sung it in a concert. I haven't come across anyone else rendering that one.

Update: that is a Ambujam Krishna song.

What is the ragam of thedi thedi? I have not heard that so far.
Sarvantharyami- Radha Jayalakshmi has also sung that.
There is another rare song of Tyagaraja in that concert of MLV- Kshetrapalaka in Bilahari. I have not heard that song from any body else.

thOdi

The link for the concert is available in the topic I have posted in Sahitya forum. You could download and listen. Starts with thOdi and a fantastic mOhanam + tAnam + yEn paLLi. Haven't yet listened to the rest of the concert.

Dear Rasikas

That 1960 concert of Smt MLV seems to be a concert of some later year. Her sound is seems to be more like that of late 70s and some voice to support her in the audio? Can somebody clarify?
