K V Narayanaswamy

A concert by the master known for his aesthetics.

Palghat K V Narayanaswamy immediately brings to mind music that is sedate, deep, and quintessentially classical. He was known for his sensitivity and his refined aesthetics, and his handling of both ragas and compositions appealed to both connoisseur and layman alike. KVN, as he is commonly known, produced interpretations of songs such as Varugalaamo Ayya in Raga Manji and Sumasaayaka in Raga Karnataka Kapi, which remain the touchstones for concert artistes for the ideal feel they bring out. The same can be said for his handling of manodharma, especially neraval, for the way he highlighted the meaning and sense of the sahitya. This concert of Palghat K V Narayanaswamy comprises Tyagaraja kritis.
