M S Gopalakrishnan

A programme with renditions featuring the violin maestro in connection with his birth anniversary on June 10.

M S Gopalakrishnan hailed from the celebrated Parur lineage of violinists. He started performing as a little boy of barely eight, along with his elder brother M S Anantharaman, also a veteran violinist. He trained under his father Parur Sundaram Iyer. MSG was equally adept at both Carnatic and Hindustani music. As an accompanist, he embellished concerts by complementing the main artist’s ideas with rare sensitivity. He would swiftly interpret the main artiste’s musical expressions, and lend support in an absolutely unobtrusive manner. This programme features renditions that showcase the skills of MSG in both the Carnatic and Hindustani styles.
