"TRS The Great" has sung that Pallavi in quite a few ragas. I remember a Sastri Hall concert in the late 70s (Not sure) with T. Rukmini, Upendran & a very young Harishankar, where he sang this in Kalyani in Misra Triputa, Khanda Nadai..

Thank you Sachi_R and Talalaya for the response. I do not have the audio of the concert of Gayatri Venkataragavan in Tampa,FL on Oct.15, where she sang this Pallavi. I missed her initial announcement of the raga, but later she said that this wold be a pallavi by TRS. It sounded like Mohana KalyaNi to me, but I was not sure. The violinist also played Kapi during the Alapana, adding to my confusion ! It was a very good concert that I enjoyed very much.

Today Oct04th,2018 is TRS mama's Death Anniversary
------------------------------------------------------------------
What can one say about Thiruvidaimarudhur Rajagopalan Subramaniam or Taala Raaga Swaroopan that his stock mrudangam accompanist kamalakar Rao told once about shri TRS.

Personally one of my top two biggest regret is not hearing TRS sing a live concert. In late 80's when my periappa in Delhi introduced and said he is TRS - a carnatic musician . I asked TRS mAmA do you sing like santhanam. Strange question then, but now I keep asking the whole world does any one other than (MMI-SSI-GNB and may be few more) ever sing with such verve and manodharmam like TRS. I personally owe a lot of rasikatvam to Taala Raaga Swaroopan .

A rare Thyagaraja krithi Lakshanamulu in suddhasAveri, I only knew about this krithi few years back when I wrote a review that abhishek sang. I then came to know thru the forum that trs sang this lovely krithi

There is a TRS National Prog of 1970s where in he sang this piece with a few others. totally about 6/7 kritis, limited alapana/swarams etc. TRULY BEAUTIFUL CONCERT and a young and vibrant voice.

Is there a recording of that?

how time flies !! A decade ago we christened this track as the 1234 demo.
And it lives on....

From listening to this I believe this actually is the audio track of a video recording. Does anyone have the video version?

Thanks,

Most of what you wrote possibly i already knew any way thanks for rekindling those memories . The rendition of bharatha janani by palakkad sriram shows his abhimAnam even voice texture is bit like TRS mama. Ideas just kept pouring in all directions and they were indeed blessed to see TRS mama in action. Thank you palakkad sreeram for capturing the intense musical drive of taala raaga swaroopan.
