SYAMA music and dance examinations 2013 was conducted on Saturday the 13th July. Examiner was Mr R Parthasarathy from Chennai for Music, Mr V Balakrishnan from Singapore for Bharathanatyam. Examination results will be announced on next week.
SYAMA presented a chamber veena duet by Maestro Parthasarathy and SYAMA president V Ramkumar on Saturday 20th July 2013 at SYAMA Chamber. Suresh accompanied on the Mridangam. The duo started their concert with Sadananda tandavam in raga bahudhari/adi followed by kalpanaswaras. This was followed by Sobillu Saptaswara in Jaganmohini/Rupakam and subsequently Raga Hamsanadam alapana with Bantureethi – a Thyagraja krithi, along with kalpanaswaras. The main piece was Muruga Muruga in Raga Saveri which had the ‘thani’ by Sri Suresh. Sri Parthasarathy played a solo raga alapana on Behag, followed by Swati tirunal krithi Smara Janaka, by the duo. They ended the concert with a tiruppugazh in Madhyamavathi.
I enjoyed the concert last evening. Music is a mood creator and mood transformer. Yesterday the audience could experience it. The initial mood of light romance suddenly changed to pathos, with Mumtaz in deathbed and Shahjahan with tears in his eyes, which your veena brought out with soulful melancholy. Then suddenly inspired by the dedication of Taj Mahal by the King to his Beloved, the Sitar burst into a raaga of exhilaration transforming the mood of the hall. Finally the Tabla-Mridangam jugalbandhi was an enjoyable interplay, at times even a little bit mischievous, creating a mood of relaxed mirth. Overall, it was a journey of melody, journey of rhythm and journey of moods. In short … a journey of music. In this musical journey you, the Musicians, were truly inspired by the legend of Taj Mahal and we, the audience, were enjoyably inspired by you, the Musicians.
As always, I enjoyed your Veena. Kindly convey my appreciation and thanks to Sri Suman Bhattacharya, Sri Venkatramanan and Sri Partha Mukherjee too. Everyone was wonderful and full of Bhaavam. As the sanskrit saying goes, “Yad Bhaavam thad Bhavathi”. You all could bring out the emotions and moods very well in your music because you had those “Bhaavams” inside you. Wish we have many more programs of this nature.
My best wishes to Syama and for its activities to flourish.
