Rajamargam

Live in Concert

Semmangudi, the uncompromising traditionalist, and innovative genius, remains the ultimate authority in the theory and practice of Carnatic music. There have been very few maestros, to lend such grandeur to music, such as Semmangudi, the Pitamaha of Carnatic music. His music has a magnetic power to turn a listener into meditative mode on one hand and a passionate addict on the other. His music exudes brilliance and devotion all at once. In bringing out the bhava of a Krti, Semmangudi has no equal. He popularized many Krtis of composers ranging from Swati Tirunal, Matrubhutayya, Ambujam Krishna, giving them as much stature and prominence as the Trinity compositions. In most of his concerts the highlight is the exuberant exposition of Niraval and Kalpana Svaras. His rendition of Sarvalaghu patterns in Kalpana Svaras is unparalleled, leaving the listener craving for more.

Accompanying Semmangudi in this magnificent concert are the legends Mysore T. Chowdiah on the Violin and Vellore Ramabhadran on the Mridangam elevating the whole concert experience to great heights. Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer is definitely the Emperor of the Music Empire.
