Infosys hall - Trimurthy Vaibhavam

Dec 2007

If Karnatic concerts today are rich in its content, it is mainly because of the beautiful compositions of the Trinity namely, Thyagaraja, Dikshitar and Shyama Sastri who have made a monumental contribution. Many scales came alive as ragas through their beautiful compositions. They also offer a variety fare in terms of raga, tala, kalapramana, eduppu, structure etc and through a comparative study, these aspects were explained by Dr.Radha Bhaskar in her presentation “Trimurthy Vaibhavam” organized during Mudhra’s 13th Fine arts festival on 11th December 2007. Appropriate demonstrations by Radha, Prema Rangarajan, Uma & Geetha with the accompaniment of Srividhya Iyer ( violin) and Sharan Shivakumar ( mrudangam) made the presentation wholesome. The rasikas were also enlightened about the salient features and distinct style of each composer so that they could appreciate it better.
