Mesmerising

Soothing: The saxophone recital.

He began the concert with an ode to Ganapathy with Vathapi Ganapathim’ in raag Hamsadhwani. Also offering Carnatic connoisseurs a reason to rejoice was the kriti  Endaro Mahanubhavulu in raag Sri. His rendition of Nagumomu in raag Aabheri was a delight to listen to as many in the audience were seen following the kriti closely.  It was followed by Venkatachala Niliyam in raag Sindhu Bhairavi, the chemistry that existed between the violinist and the saxophone artiste had a mesmerising effect on the audience, who were glued to their seats. The audience comprised of musicians and Carnatic music connoisseurs, who listened to the pieces with rapt attention reacting to the pieces appropriately and provided ample encouragement to the artiste.

Madhu, the violinist, requires special mention for his equally competent performance.
The khanjira and dhol complemented the saxophone equally well and enhanced the performance. The concert ended with the simple yet popular Bhagyada Lakshmi Baramma in Madhyamavathi Raag. This was a befitting end to the wonderful performance.
His music in all its simplicity was highly relatable as he played compositions that were hugely popular with an ease and perfection.
