Small Corrections of the pieces by TNS Sir during the season.

a) The S'anmukhapriya piece sung in Mylapore Fine Arts was "Kolam Kandu Kalitheernden" by Ambujam Krishna set to tune by Sh. TNS himself.

b) The song "Endamalai Sevitthaalum" in Kambhoji is a compositon of TNSs' mother.

c) The Thodi kriti sung in "sabha next to the temple at Tiruvanmiyoor " was "Nee daya ravale" and the "Misra Shivaranjani he sang the evergreen favourite,'Ravisharadhe'. " is the ashtapadi "Praviss'a Radhe".

Wonder as to why TNS has not been awarded 'Doctorate' till date, as he is exponent in Vocal, Veena, Harikatha, Harmonium etc.(by member _first)

Yes , why this great legend has not been awarded Doctorate by any university??

I read many informations about TNS sir in the kutcheri reviews topic (RR sabha Jan10 2009), It will be useful and intersting if all the informations could be post in this thread. Many of the postings are very informative

Dear rasikas,around 10 to 15yrs back I attended a concert of Sri T.N.Sheshagopalan sir in Mylapore fine arts club during december season.In that concert he rendered Sri kantimathim in Himavathi and Karthikeya in Todi as main item.This was a fantastic concert.Seshagopalan sir is in full swing in that concert.The accompanists are Mysore Nagaraj-violin and V.Kamalakar rao-mridangam.I didn't have that concert with me but I still remember the wonderfull items sung by him.If anybody have this concert please do upload it and post the link.Thanks in advanceNamasthe.

Das wrote:Wouldn't you think that the name T.N Seshagopalan alone explains it all. Does he really need those credentials. Don't his kutcheris,lengthy or precise, say it all. I wouldn't leave his concert not humming at least one of the ragams i had heard. I started off with a small collection of recordings from the 1980s comprising of a Thodi,Bhairavi,Chakravaham,Shanmugapriya and Hindolam unheard of. The sangathis this maestro unleashes has to be heard,mere discription alone would explain almost nothing.

December 2007,i land in India and find myself seated at the Mylapore Fine Arts Club(15/12/07) awaiting the tardy arrival of the musician,TNS of course. He began a lenghty alapanam in Shanmugapriya for the second piece, could it be Marivere or maybe Siddhi Vinayakam we wonder. But of course,we are wrong. He sings 'Olam Kandu',a composition of Ambujam Krishna i believe. As i had mentioned in an entry before this,the higlight of this concert was the ragam tanam pallavi set to three ragas( Vasantha,Bhairavi Vasantha Bhairavi). After his alapanam in Bhairavi you hear M.Chandrasekar saying,'ippadi oru bhairaviya ketkurathu romba aboorvam',literally meaning that its rare to listen to such a bhairavi. In fact the entire RTP surpassed excellence,it was amazing. Mind blowing. Who else but TNS could conjure up a pallavi such as this(Sruthi Laya Bava Sangeetham Athai En Vasan Ta,Bhairavi Pavani).

The next i heard him was on the 18/12/07 at the Sri YGP Auditorium. A crowd was absent, but has that ever been the reason for a mediocre concert. Almost laughable i'd think. He starts with a Sri Ranjani,Brocheva. The main piece was in Kambodhi,' Yentha Malai',a tamil compostion dedicated to the Lord Ayyapan. How perfect,at a point in time when you see buses of devotees dressed in black dhotis and irumudis making their way to Sabari. He had to flaunt,and who would i be kidding to say that i wasn't looking forward to that. The calculations in the kalpanaswarams for this piece in particular was far from simplistic.

It was at a sabha next to the temple at Tiruvanmiyoor on he 02/01/08. A concert that lasted for maybe 3 hours and 10minutes. A concert by the Sangeetha Kalanidhis(TNS,M.Chandrashekar and Vellore). So as tradition follows he inaugurated the concert with an Ata Tala Varnam set to the ragam Reethigowlai,and of course there were kalpanaswarams. I got reminded of the one time i saw him back home in Singapore where he performed the Viriboni varnam for 20mins,in both speeds exploring all permutations both in tala and swaras. There were two elaborate raga alapanams present in this kutcheri. The first of which was in Hamir Kalyani. The applause that followed explained it all. Then, one of them from the audience raised his hand to ask what ragam it was and even before the artiste could answer another from the audience did. TNS then in good humour questioned if it was that uncomprehendable. He told that once during a concert ,by a vidwan from the past,a member of the audience got up and told the musician who had just sung a Thodi,that so far its all been good and that maybe he could sing a Thodi. Anyway,the concert went on. And there it was,Thodi, in all its splendour and more. With sruthi bedham he introduced the ragams Mohanakalyani and Natabhairavi. The violinist had his fair share of fun as well playing us glimpses of Anandhabhairavi. The kriti was 'Nee Dayara". The kalpanaswarams that followed were ingeniously planned along with the line chosen for the neraval. The nereval starts with the word Veda. The ragams were Sama,Karaharapriya and Revathi. The latter two being ragams in which the vedas are traditionally sung in. With a virutham in Misra Shivaranjani he sang the evergreen favourite,'Ravisharadhe'.

It was these three concerts from last december together with my personal studio and live recordings collection which i have that i now proudly line myself along with the rest of rasikas who have come to understand TNS sirs music. Listening alone does no justice for his music requires intellect. The ability to appreciate and comprehend the music of the Genius honours you with a Patam as a rasika of Indian Classical Music. Personally i feel blessed to have been born in a generation that has been honoured and privilaged enough to celebrate a musician such as T.N Seshagopalan.
The RTP is available in sangeethapriya. I cant recollect the folder name

I personally like his kapalini trisulini ezhil sindumbhairavi with you know what ragams its quite obvious how he introduces wordplay in pallavis making it sound recognizable to a few and not so to others.Seshu mama is a genius in this aspect apart from his extremely brilliant intellect in music.

However the vasantha bhairavi pallavi also a favourite of mine Chandrashekar mama simply excels together with seshu mama.

Also i like his bageshwari pallavi somasundareshwara priya vamabaghesri rajamatangi pahimam.

Without a doubt the trinity of extreme manodharma in all forms be it ragam neraval swaram kriti rendition kriti creation pallavi srutibhedam graha bedam are Tanjore s.kalyanaraman mama,Balamuralikrishnagaru and Our own T.N.Seshagopalan mama. This is my opinion however i also know many others who fit in this category but these three take the cake with regard to their daredevil type stuff they do.

This is from the wonderful concert at the 'koothambalam' of Kerala Kalamandalam, part of their platinum jubilee celebration...

The concert started at 9:30 pm and it was 2: 45 am, by the time it was over. One fantastic concert to remember.

That would be the Narayana Teerthar piece Veeksheham with an Anupallavi start that TNS sings in Ahiri. The Anupallavi starts as 'Sakshath Madana Koti..' if I remember right..

#77 Featuring Madurai T N Seshagopalan in "Parvathi", Mysuru 197

Post by cpblog »

Dear Rasikas,

With Deepavalli at our doorsteps, we thought it was time to feature a 70's concert by the eminent Sangeeta Kalanidhi Vidwan Sri T N Seshagopalan from "Parvathi" in Mysuru . In this concert he is supported wonderfully by Vidwans Chalakudy Narayanaswamy, Tanjore Upendran and Sosale Sheshagiri Das.

Please enjoy and wishing you all happiness in music and in the lighting of the Lamps!

Venkatakailasam,

Thanks for a fantastic collection of articles on the eminence of the Vidwan!
"A Pink Floyd fan strays into a T. N. Seshagopalan concert and comes back converted". There couldn't have been a better caption to express the power of his music.

Thanks also for the wonderful clip on T. Chowdiah in Youtube (also mentioned in the forum on Chowdiah).

Harimau also said wrote: I heard Sri T N Seshagopalan sing Kapi in a 3-hour long one-raga-one-krithi concert but then Seshagopalan is probably the only artist today who can pull it off.

It was a concert held at Mylapore Fine Arts Club auditorium some 6 years ago. Sri M Chandrasekaran was the violinist. I don't think it was ever released as a DVD or CD.

Most likely, this concert too was sponsored by Mudhra.

A couple of days before the concert, the word leaked out that the raga chosen would either be Kapi or one major raga (whose name escapes me) which would have given great scope for elaboration. But TNS proved that, in a master's hands, there is nothing like a minor raga!

Indeed right Harimau - But I am not sure if he indeed sang for 3 full hours (even assuming there was a 30 mins tani).

There is this brief writeup of Saroja ramanujan - quoting verbatim below

saroja madam writes as below:

12-11-2006-Mudra- One raga one krthi concert-Naradaganasabha
The raga taken was Kapi and TNS sang the krthi 'inthasoukyamanine' of Thyagaraja.
THose who heard the concert that day was really fortunate because the kapi raga was 'KA API'raga, meaning something that could not be described in words."kapi" or "kopi" in sanskrit besides meaning something or someone also used to denote something wonderful that cannot be described in words. The kapi that day was so exquisite that to describe it in usual terms as a kumbakonam degree kapi etc will be a gross understatement!

'Inthasoukyamanine' was rendered with such skill and imagination that made the audience exclaim with Thyagaraja ;inthasukyamanine , entho emo evariki thelusuno.

Radha bhaskar
Can you clarify as to how long he sang without the tani the kapi one raga one krithi in that mudhra concert.Did he also sing any other varnam or vathapi before Kapi . I am still keeping my fingers crossed to know if TNS indeed sang for 3 hours - may be 2 hours inclusive of 20 mins tani is what I am assuming .Can you clarify please ?

Also is there a recording available for commercial purchase for the kapi - one raga one krithi . I adore TNS kapi -even when doing ragamaliga swaras there is usually a likely kapi burst which is just out of the world.

TNS has had 3 chances to sing one raga one krithi - todi,kambodhi and kApi. I vaguely recollet tns singing todi in mudhra when it was held in the hotel near valluvarkottam - before they moved to rkm school atleast 10 years back.Is that right also right radha - my memory is bit hazy?

Thanjavooran sir..

As regards, Listening and appreciation of Music…..
The rasikas or listeners, having yearning for classical music, crave for blissful moments to derive total satisfaction. They give time, take efforts and are committed to appreciation of music.
One has to first like to hear and appreciate music.. Appreciation, good support to music, is restricted here unfortunately, because of elitist leanings….and personal equations…..
A true rasika is one who has to give undivided attention, with no bias or distractions of any kind, to receive the music and experience…the bliss…..

It is rare to see rasikas like you and CRama..

VK Sir, Thanks for the themmangu song by TNS. I had not heard this earlier from any vocalist although I had heard it in flute and nadaswaram. TNS has sung it beautifully in his inimitable style.
Sir, I requested you for some USrinivas. Just reminding.

Smt. Nithyashree has sung this in a commercial CD several years ago. IIRC, it's a composition of Sri HKMB, attesting to his versatility as a composer. I'd like to understand more about the setting of this temmAngu...obviously, sundaran sEr peNamaNi is mInAkshi - so, who is the narrator? Is it another woman who is confessing to mInAkshI that she's lost her heart to Siva (pari koDuttEn yen manadai)?
