A very late update, I admit. But I can't resist mentioning some details about this concert - now that the concert recording / Album is out for a while.

Song List:
  1. Sivaloka Nathanai - Mayamalavagowla - Rupakam - GKBharathi (10:57)
  2. Dinamani Vamsa - Harikambhoji - Adi - Tyagaraja (18:32)
  3. Vinatha Sutha vahana - Jayantasena - Deshadi - Tyagaraja (12:44)
  4. MAmava Meenakshi-Varali-MisraChapu-Dikshithar (35:58)
  5. Pranatharthi Hara - Shree+MElarAgamAlikA - Adi - MVSivan (14:51)
  6. ParAkEla Nannu - Kedaragowla - Adi - Syama Sastri (4:33)
  7. Sariyevvaramma - Bhairavi - Khanda Jhampa - Syama Sastri (47:51)
  8. SrngArAdhi navarasAngi - Dhavalanga - Khanda Eka - Dikshitar (6:24)
  9. RTP SAranga Varada mAmava - Surutti, SAranga, BrindavanaSaranga, SuddhaSaranga, Saranga Malhar - Khanda Triputa - RKSK (38:00)
    • SAranga Varada mAmava SarvadA Saranam Iti Suratita (sAranga...)
  10. Hari Chitta Satya - Jonpuri - Adi - Purandara (4:34)
  11. Takur Tum SaranAyi (Bhajan) - Mand -Misra gathi- Sant GuruNanak's Shabad (6:34)
  12. ApAra Karuna - Sindhu Bhairavi - Adi - RKSK (preceded by Slokam - Kara Charana) (10:48)
  13. Nirguna NirAmaya - Yamunakalyani - KhandaChapu - Thayumanavar (6:14)
  14. Ramachandraaya Janaka (Mangalam) - Kurinji - Eka - BadrachalaRamadasa (1:52)
Just the beauty of the MelaRagamalika rendering alone was worth the concert. The Vidushi rendered the fifth and sixth Chakras balancing well the length of the Kriti to the point of context in the concert. Overall, the structuring of the concert itself seemed meticulously planned.

Another gem, I felt, was the Vidwan RKS's own Sanskrit composition on KapAleeswara of Mylapore - sung so soulfully by Amritha.

I will let the album speak (er, render) for itself on rest of the concert.

The lyrics for pieces [11, 12, 13] are embedded in the mp3 interface to view as they render (as also the RTP's Pallavi).

Personally - this one concert is for the ages (as also her 2012 concert in Bay Area)

Hope you enjoy it too.
