Paramatmakam

Live in Concert, 1967

Sangita Pitamaha, Padmavibhushan , Sangita Kalanidhi (the youngest musician to receive this coveted award) are just a few titles that adorn the greatest musical legend of the 20th Century, Dr. Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer. Semmangudi as he was popularly known became a phenomenon in the world and there is probably no musician till today who has not been stirred and influenced by his style. Some of the greatest musicians in the world of Carnatic music have trained under this doyen, which includes M.S. Subbulakshmi, T.N.Krishnan, T.M.Thyagarajan and the likes. His virtuosity as a concert performer is unparalleled. Meticulous planning, the choice of compositions, Ragas, ingenius improvisations in all aspects of creative music, particularly Niraval and Kalpana Svarams are some of the reasons he will be remembered and cherished forever. Creativity at its best, yet soaked in deep Bhakti makes him easily the tallest among all musicians - The Mount Everest of Carnatic music.

The highlight of this spellbinding concert is the brilliant accompaniment of the legends Lalgudi G. Jayaraman on the Violin and Vellore Ramabhadran on the Mridangam taking the concert to enormous heights.
