Sri Sanjay Subrahmanyan sang an interesting, exclusive Tamil compositions concert for Muthamil Peravai at the Narada Gana Sabha. He was at his usual best, delivering a quality performance once again, ably assisted by the accompanying artists. Everything about the concert was so good except for the fact that the auditorium folks had probably decided to give a feeling of the North Indian winter to Chennai folks assembled there. It was biting cold inside the auditorium, at least in the area where I was sitting.
Sri Neyveli Venkatesh and Sri Trichy Murali played a taniavartanam in Adi talam comprising chatusra and sankIrna nadais and a kuraippu in tisra nadai.

Sanjay’s repertoire is already getting to be the stuff of legend. Despite singing so extensively in the season, he’s still pulling out compositions that are rarely sung by anybody, let alone by him. That’s one area where TM could be better, I think — he tends to have a much more limited repertoire, don’t you think?
Agree with you completely on Sanjay’s repertoire. I think TMK’s repertoire is also fairly vast. I have heard him also include new songs into his concerts, though his rate of inclusion certainly seems to be lower than that of Sanjay’s.
