Ramnad Krishnan

A concert by the "Musician's musician", an artiste of refined aesthetics.

Ramnad Krishnan's music was marked by an ease of rendition that often belied the effort that went into making the vidwan. He was an artiste who made musical nuances seem like an easy thing to accomplish. Krishnan was a student of Ramnad Sankara Sivam, and that’s when he became Ramnad Krishnan. If GNB considered Ariyakudi as his maanasika guri, it could arguably be said that Ramnad Krishnan considered GNB his maanasika guru, and his singing shows the GNB influence. Krishnan also was an understudy of T Brinda, from whom he gained a mastery of the idiom that invests his renditions of ragas and compositions. He was also a master of modulations that he could produce without a hint of artificiality. This concert has Ramnad Krishnan elaborating ragas Kalyani, Saveri and Sri.
