Duet of two Violins - two Mridangams in "Parvathi", Mysore 1972


Starting in the late 1950's, Vidwan Lalgudi Jayaraman and his sister Srimathi Brahmanandam started performing the violin duet concerts accompanied by none other than the Mridangam maestro Sri Palghat Mani Iyer.

This became hugely popular all over the country.

The trend set by the duo gave rise to a creative collaboration between two great violinists, Vidwan T. N. Krishnan and Vidwan M. Chandrasekharan. To add to the rich concert experience, they also brought in the double mridangam accompaniment of Vidwan Umayalpuram K. Sivaraman and Vidwan Tanjavur Upendran. Thus came about the occasion ( 'Rama Navami' festival and T.Chowdiah 'smaranam') for the Mysore cognoscenti to be treated to this rich feast of music from these stalwarts in "Parvathi" , Mysore, in 1972.
