Lalgudi composes for Sringaram
after a slumber I was gettin my bearings n I stumled upon this as I grazed through the days tabloid ... usually its movies :) (I ain't a news paper guy) ... but I do scan the suppliment for interesting articles once is a while ... n I bumped into this one today ... I donned a wide smile as I saw his picture n ... laughing as I read along :)) ... this mas in simply A.M.A.Z.I.N.G !!!
I listen to quite a bit of music ... a dilettante enthusiast to be precise ... regardless of my adolescence I'd say I'v heard and savoured music to be eligible to express my opinion ... so I take that privilege ;;)
I'v never felt music dance to the whims of a person as him ... strictly classical i'd qualify that which I am talking about ... amma goes off-mark many times but when its lalgudi's and his lineage, the sweetness is soo obvious ... unmistakeable :x ... I don't remember it ever being loud ... as ppl wud say ghaneerunu ... but its soft and precise ... the string is crisp only to certain nuances ... but with them it always feels perfect ... even the barely noticeable ghamakams (which I'v begun noticing lately) are so vivid n just ... *perfect* ...
he is one of the most humble yet majestic person when he holds the violin ... n I'd luv an opportunity to hear him speak :) in person some day ... these trite things as they might seem will surface as a pride with which to brag to future generations ;) ... n I shall when I get my turn :>
the fact that he was upto a movie project took me by surprise ... as the old man says, the strong carnatic flavour of the movie was his incitement to take up this project ... needless to say a prodigy @ violin ... its his pieces that inspired me to take up this difficult to master string instrument ... I'm tryin what I can :) ...
for enthusiasts pleasure ... I'v given link to the article (follow the article title) ... O:) ... nsoi
