Incomplete song list:

mEgha ranjani kriti of Mysore SrI vAdEvachariar
Abhogi Alapana - mAtA sada avatumAm - mataShAlini jagan
mIna lOCana - dhanyAsi - SrI SyAmA Sastri - miSra cApu
kalyANi Alapana, kamalAmbAm bhajarE - navAvaRANA kriti - Adi - SRI muttusvAmi dIskhitar
enna puNNiyam seytEnO - rItigauLa - miSra cApu - OVK (?)

pURvi tillana - the KVN popular one in rUpakam. nirinirigamagarisa.

Abhogi rAgam was a wonderful exposition. A nice composition with svarAkshara pUrvAngam and uttarangam on the pallavi.

DhanyAsi was missing a short Alapana, but kriti rendition and neraval at sAmaja lifted the concert to heights. He handled the nerval in druta kAlam very well keeping dhanyAsi intact. Nice arudis in svarams. Lot of math sense.

And kalyANI was mostly an ascending exposition with a shorter windup on the descent. He took it in stages. neraval at nitya kalyANIm was befitting the grandeur of the kriti. Majestic support by SrI Raja Rao and Alathur SrI Rajaganesh.

Great tani. Alathur Rajaganesh played many interesting kOrvais including the crisp SrI dakshiNA mURty piLLai's kORvai, which had caturaSram lower kAlam, triSram and higher kAla caturaSram again. Rest of them need re-hearing , many kArvai filled crisp ones.

Sri Ramprasad has a good bass filled voice, which does resistant movements and almost no brighas. Weighty expositions and brings high degree of syllabic interval awareness to his renditions - a great inherited trait of a percussion tradition in the family.

A great tribute to SrI Harishankar.

Thanks for pointing out. Fixed it. I knew it before, but was hasty and hazy in my mind, simply forgetting it, last night.

My observations:
*Violin accompaniment by TV Ramanujacharyulu (AIR Trichy) was excellent and demonstrative of the sense of proportion in 'returns'. And Sruti suddham.

* A very good tribute was paid to 'Ganjira Mahamedhai' G Harishankar by Mridanga Vidwan Sri Srimushnam RajaRao at the start of the event. He also congratulated Alathur Rajaganesh who belongs to a great musical lineage - he is the grandson of Alathur Sivasubramania Iyer.

A very good concert.
