dear ganesh mourthy sir,
you seem to be very well informed about the great MC mama's style.
viraladi technique is one of the advanced techniques used in this style. it is used to produce phrases of astonishing speed with consummate ease at the same time not compromising on the clarity of each swara.
it is also used to imitate the nadaswaram style of playing.
for more viraladi techniques, see MC mama's video so thoughtfully donated by shri SSK sir

Dear members, we welcome you to a 1999 Violin duet at "Parvathi", Mysore featuring Vidwan Chandrasekharan and his daughter Vidushi Bharathi at http://chowdaiahandparvati.blogspot.com/

The maestro may have been one of the most featured artists in "Parvathi". He performed first in 1965, then a few times, and then saw a magnificient run from 1970 to 1986, playing every year, sometimes featured twice in a year, sometimes thrice, including many a solo performance while of course accompanying all the famous vocalists of those times (there are many postings of his). Though not as often as before, he would still continue after 1986 to delight the Rasikas every now and then.

Dear All,

i would like to share with all of you my experiences with our very dear MC sir. At the outset I want to state that I am just a music lover and have not learnt any music at all. I do not understand any technical points at all. I feel from my heart only. I was extremely lucky to record our dear Sir for Times Music. I was bestowed with his blessings. I found him to be one of the most wonderful artistes without any conceit in his heart. He was simplicity personified and his affection and love flowed boundless without any restrictions. I was most fascinated by his genuine affectionate feelings for me. I was keen that I should record him with a minimal presence of his daughter . It was a beautiful feeling when his daughter understood and played very subtly to enhance his wonderful presence. He recognized me quite some time later when he was at Delhi at a concert for AIR sangeet sammellan. I was very much moved when he took my hand and made very affectionate inquires. I still remember his duet with T.N.Krishnan sir at Red fort Delhi. way back in 1973. That was the last concert of the series. There was too much crowd and we could not get into the pandal before the start of the concert and we had to walk in queue right from the entrance of the Red Fort. We were hearing Hamsadwani played by the duo over the public address system. I was very happy that the shop keepers were listening to the concert. Some arrangements were made to have a close circuit TVs installed at a lot of places for easy viewing and listening for general public. I could not get any seat and stood during the entire concert duration. I was simply astonished that even the Delhi policemen were drawn towards the concert. The most wonderful moment came when our very dear MC sire played Hamsanandi and the entire on lookers were simply sat enthralled. I have never seen such a complete involvement and participation by a motley crowd consisting of policemen and shopkeepers and general on lookers to be completely involved when our MC sir played. Every phrase of the duo were appreciated. It was one of the highly impressive concert and created a great impact in me. Whenever MC sir played , the sound one felt was so peaceful and so moving and heartfelt.

With warm regards

A very beautiful story.

I know that Sri KVN particularly enjoyed the accompaniment and enthusiasm of Sri MC. KVN's famous Swathi Thirunal cassette (Tharangini) has Sri MC on the violin.

Sri MC did an amazing job very recently accompanying BMK at BSU.

You will find many wonderful concerts, photographs and memoirs of the great artiste in the Parvathi blog:

It seems that tomorrow is the great man's 75th birthday. There is a tribute by his disciples tonight and a celebration tomorrow at Dakshinamurthy Auditorium (PSHS School). One of the great things about seeing MC play is the infectious joy that the music gives him. Wishing him every joy of his birthday, and hoping for many more years of him sharing his delight in music with us.
