Vidwan Bharat Sundar, a young, upcoming artist, gave an impressive
concert for Nadasurabhi on Sunday, 15th January 2017. With a fine presentation of Begada Varnam, he
moved on to a breezy song – Sri Madhurambike of Muthuswami Dikshitar in
Kalyani. The neraval and swara prasthara
at Kadamba kanana…were presented at an unimaginably high speed! The relaxed alapana of Nayaki, for Thyagaraja’s Kanukonu soukayamu was rendered with all soukyam. Dikshitar’s Sri Mathrubhootham in Kannada
with swara for pallavi was an excellent treat.
Srikantha nee in Bhavapriya (Thyagaraja) was presented well. Ritigoula raga alapana was sung in all its
splendour with appropriate gamakas, followed by Thyagaraja’s Dwaitamu
Sukhama. A well planned swara was
followed by Tani avartanam. An RTP in
Shanmukhapriya was executed very well with beautiful raga, masterly
Vidushi H.M Smitha’s Violin support was highly admirable. She
played the ragas very neatly and supported with full understanding. She was at her best while playing
Bharat’s good rapport with the accompanying artists on the stage helped in making the concert a success! There was an overwhelming response to this concert and one could see the contentment on the faces of audience in the end!!
