Yes it was one of the happiest weekends last week end on the 23rd & 24th October, 2010. 23rd started off with a rehearsal for the show on the same evening. I tried 3 new composition for this concert and appa named it as The Sailor - based on Rasigapriya set to Adi, Rainbow - based on Vakulabaranam, Hemavathy and Keeravani set to Misra nadai (7/8 tempo) and The Chaste - based on ragam Gowri Manohari. we just had time to do just 1 rehearsal and decided to take a go at the pieces on stage that evening. Thanks to the team of Karaikal Venkatasubramanian on silent violin, Kumbakonam Swaminathan on Mrudhangam & Konnakol, Drummer Sridhar Bass Guitar Suri and appa on Thalam & Kanjeera (sometimes!). The audio was provided by Karthick audios and the production was through Bodhi Muzik by the team "Chennai Synthesis".
The cocnert started off with Gajananayutham in Charavagam followed by The Sailor. Then we played Krishnanee Begane named as Hasten slowly. we also played Sankarabaranam notes, Thirupugazh, Chinanchirukiliye - named as Vibgyor, a Sai Bhajan on Dwajavanthi and finished off with a medley. It was a satisfying presentation wich drew lots of appreciation. The video link is:
