After a majestic tana, she took up Akshayalinga Vibho.
Some sedate niraval at akshara svarupa amita pratapa and some very good swaras full of kanakku.
Charulata Ramanujam has been wonderful throughout. Very grounded, very sensitive, very melodious.
Tani was done with great panache by Ravishankar and Chakravarthy.
Speeches.... I left.
There was early on a Dikshitar kriti in SAmanta praNatArtiharAya namaste. Very nice.

In the speech by Sri H s sudheendra,there was bitter remark on .org postings.He started by saying he is not one of those .org persons- In summary he felt that undue criticism is heaped on performers(?).i could not make out exactly what he was referring,but he mentioned .org a number of times.
That apart kudos to Sri Sudheendra for conducting a very enjoyable series to top with Smt R Vedavalli's sublime music,the accompanists completely in tune with Madam.

Bhagwan,
My guess about Sudheendra bringing up ''.org"--if it was Rasikas.org he was referring to, it could be this: a devoted student that he is to his guru (Srimushnam), he's irked that some posts, while praising his guru's vidvat, also point to his penchant for high volume.

Madam arasi,

you may be right.I have read some posts regarding this.But as the musicians have their views,so also Rasikas can express their feelings.He stated that you should tell only positive points,but keep quiet about negativity as sitting on the stage and performing is not an easy task.Later he talked about other things.
His message to .org not to write negative points!

G_G, I think that the slOkam should've been: agnyAna timirAndasya .....
Hnbhagavan: And really, why should we not write what we feel (even it were negative), as long as it is true, and written in a refined way? A case of "The lady doth protest too much" perhaps?

rshankar

the message seems that if you feel good about the concert then express otherwise keep quiet.after all performing artist is at a higher level,This is what sudheendra meant,but i feel any rasika who spends five hours (3 hr + 2hr commuting) can express his/her views of course in a polished way.
I felt that the remarks were not called for in what otherwise was an excellent event.

Why is he so thin skinned? What is this 'direct message' to '.org' people? Is he some Raj Thackeray of Carnatic music?

Guys,
I had not left the hall when these comments were made by him. It is available on Shaale Live for you to watch, here:
Cue to 2:20:00...Sri Sudheendra announces next day's programmes first. He speaks in Kannada mixed with English.
http://livestream.com/shaalelive/suswar ... /139612174

The specific reference to "***.org" happens at 2:26:30 onwards

My own advice is not to discuss or react right now, as we may expect some more inputs from the vidwan.

I didn't listen to the speeches. But, if he came here and hit the wrong thread about the wrong person on the wrong day I can see how he might well get a bad impression. It wouldn't be entirely unfair!

But, in the context of this concert, it seems strange to bring discordant words to the mic. Especially as I don't recall anybody here ever writing anything negative about Smt RV.

Anyway, this thread is about the music. It was a wonderful concert, and congratulations to the organisers for the high-quality sound on the internet.
