V. Sreeraman presents an impressive flute recital
CHENNAI, October 11: It was a Kutcheri with a difference on Day 2 (October 9) of the three-day Navarathri Special Kutcheri in the Park organized by Sundaram Finance. There was no vocalist this morning. Instead, the morning walkers were drawn to the chess square of the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore by the sweet tunes of 12-year-old flautist V. Sreeraman, a class 8 student of Vidya Mandir, Mylapore, who presented a captivating flute recital.
Sreeraman was accompanied on the violin by Thiruvedaimarudur K Ganeshan (a disciple of Shri Durai Balasubramaniam) and on the mridangam by 14-year-old Nellai V. Sreekrishnan (a disciple of Padmavibushan Umayalpuram Shri K Sivaraman). Sreeraman has been learning music for 5 years from Shri K V Ramanujam.
Some of the songs Sreeraman presented included Muthuswamy Dikshitar’s Swaminatha Paripalaya (Natai- Adi) and Mamava Pattabhirama ( Manirangu-Misra Chaapu), Thyagaraja’s Anupama Gunambudhi (Atana-Khanda Chaapu), Shyama Sastri’s Sarojadhalanetri (Shankarabharanam-Adi) and Bhadrachala Ramadasar’s Paluke Bangaramayena ( Aanandha Bairavi- Adi).
