Strings of tribute

In memoriam A musical tribute to N.S Srinivsan.



An honour D. Srinivas performing.

Nadanjali’ here means a musical tribute to the late flute maestro N. S. Srinivasan, who served Hyderabad station of All India Radio for a long time as its music producer and is particularly remembered for teaching many a student the art of Carnatic music. His students gathered last week at Sundarayya Kala Kendram to celebrate his second vardhanti and gave concerts in his memory.

Off and on, Srinivasan figured in sabhas giving flute recitals, but is today remembered more as a guru. He was the disciple of maestro Mahalingam, a top ranking flute Vidwan. His innings at AIR Hyderabad was notable for his musical features that won National Radio awards. He was a remarkable personality and always strove to prepare young musicians.

The entire event was planned by D. Srinivas, a well known Veena vidwan and a disciple of Srinivasan and P. Srinivasa Gopalan of Naada Bharathi. This function was attended by many of his disciples. An award was created after his name. Child artistes Karteeka Anagha and D. L. Prachodan were given the award for this year that carried a citation and a cash award of Rs. 2500 each. After the function, there were mini concerts by his disciples. The main concert of this event was that by Veena player D. Srinivas. This energetic and scholarly young man is the leading veena virtuoso of the state. His fast paced Manaviyalakimpa in Nalinakanthi, a Varali raga kirtana and tanam and swarakalpana in the kriti Mamava Meenakshi followed by Tani Avartanam by mridangist Nemani were the highlights.

G.S
