Dec 30th 2012. We were going to sing a much awaited four hour concert for Kalarasana. However that morning, it was clear that Gayatri couldnt sing at all, let alone a four hour concert. A bad throat infection worsened and we called the organizers with apologies to cancel the concert. Sri Srinivasan of Kalarasana, hardpressed for a viable replacement for us, requested us to play the violin, as he didnt want to turn away the rasikas who would throng the hall in the evening. With great trepidition we took our violins which we hadn't touched in the past two years and more!As we ascended the stage in the evening, we were greeted with a houseful audience - some of them who were surprised to see us with violins in hand! Memories of our violin days, our classes with our revered Guru TS Krishnaswami washed over us as we started playing. And soon enough, our anxiety turned into joy as we rediscovered our first love- the violin! We chose the Keeravani Ragam Thanam Pallavi as a piece that took us down memory lane- after all, this was the Pallavi that we presented way back in 1989 as young girls - with Arunprakash supporting us at this very same sabha! Yes, indeed, this concert not only brought back old and golden memories, but also showed us that first loves are enduring ones..and that a Guru's grace can literally carry one through every single twist and turn of life!
A small snippet from the RTP which was posted on youtube shortly after the concert received a staggeringly positive response and with popular request, we now bring to you, dear rasikas, the entire unedited concert. The music has been so much enhanced by the sterling support by Sri Arunprakash and Sri KV Gopalakrishnan.
