All Time Favourites - Vol 4

This album is a compilation of popular and masterly compositions of Thyagaraja. "Ni Cittamu", in raga Dhanyasi is a scholarly composition seldom heard in present day concerts. The Sahana raga exposition is brilliant followed by yet another gem of Thyagaraja, "Emanadichchevo". A detailed rendition of Sankarabharanam is an added attraction.

T. Brinda affectionately referred to as Brindamma is one of the most remarkable musicians in the annals of Carnatic music and was the most prominent and eloquent inheritors of the Veena Dhanammal Bani, known for its vibrant classicism, unhurried, alluring movements, as also for its use of intricate gamakas in the handling of ragas. Brinda absorbed both the sublime and intricate Dhanammal style and Naina Pillai's fast paced masculine music and blended them seamlessly into her singing.

She was an expert at rendering ragas that featured complex patterns and subtle gamakas, such as Begada, Mukhari, Sahana, Suruti, Varali etc. She was not only a repository of Kshetrayya padams and javalis but also a master of many rare compositions of the Carnatic Music Trinity. Her music was soul stirring and full of microscopic nuances. She had a captivating voice, which had clarity, sweetness, depth and majesty. This product is a private collection of her daughter Smt. Vegavahini Vijayaraghavan who is also an accomplanished musician.
