A soulful tribute to Carnatic composers on the occasion of World Music Day

Violin maestro K. V. Reddy felicitated on the occasion

The rhythm was perfectly in sync with the mood that enveloped the precincts of Ghantasala Venkateswara Rao Government College of Music and Dance on Monday evening.

The impact of the mellifluous renditions by renowned performers was deep and emotional. Paying glowing tributes to some of the celebrated ‘vaggeyakaras’ (composers of Carnatic classical music), The Hindu Friday Review in association with Manyam’s Property and Wealth Management Systems Limited and Swara Jhari, a cultural organisation, doled out a musical-packed evening on the occasion of World Music Day. Rightly called ‘Yendaro Mahanubhavulu’, the show was a fitting homage to the music composers who left behind a treasure of ‘keerthanalu’ and ‘padaalu’ for generations to come.


The occasion was also appropriate to felicitate violin maestro K.V. Reddy. The former lecturer in the Government Music College said he was happy to be associated with a function organised by a newspaper that had a glorious past. “The Hindu Friday Review is my favourite. Besides politics and other general news, The Hindu gives much importance to cultural activities, which is a very healthy sign,” he said.

Leading the troupe that churned out selected renditions and had the listeners asking for more was Modumudi Sudhakar, a renowned musician, who has to his credit over 5,000 concerts performed across the country. A music producer in the All India Radio, Vijayawada, for the last two decades, Mr. Sudhakar sang ‘krithis’ with the meaning and musical beauty that perfectly matched with his mature expression.

Whether it was Annamayya’s ‘Yenthamaatramuna yevaru talachina…” Jayadeva’s ‘Nijagadasa yadunandane…” or Kshetrayya’s ‘Aligithe vaadaligithe…”, the renditions served as a spiritual sojourn that helped the listeners connect to their inner self. The vocalists rendered in all 13 compositions that had the audience glued to their seats.

Chairman of the Manyam Property and Wealth Management Systems Limited K.S. Subramanyam and The Hindu Regional General Manager K. Chandrasekaran spoke. Senior journalist C. Raghavachari and others were present.

Thématique 2010

« Musique au féminin » est le thème retenu pour la 29ème édition de la Fête de la Musique.

De la muse inspiratrice jusqu’aux héroïnes du répertoire lyrique et à leurs mythiques interprètes, sans oublier les grandes voix du jazz, les rockeuses et la jeune génération de la chanson française, mais aussi la nourrice et ses berceuses, le personnage de la chanteuse réaliste ou de la chanteuse des rues et leur répertoire entré au patrimoine… la « musique au féminin » suggère d’emblée une infinité de variations mais évoque aussi le chemin parcouru pour que les femmes, souvent « interdites » de musique, aient pu y conquérir leur place. Qu’elles soient compositeurs, chefs d’orchestre, instrumentistes ou DJ, beaucoup d’entre elles, par leur talent et leur volonté, peuvent en témoigner aujourd’hui.

C’est leur créativité, leurs combats, la vérité profonde de leurs répertoires qui seront mis à l’honneur le lundi 21 juin 2010.
