"Lalgudi Jayaraman, one of the foremost violinists of South Indian Classical Music, shines brilliantly in this live concert recorded at Harbourfront, Ontario, 1994. The first krithi, Thyagaraja's Nannu Palimpa in Mohanam, is rendered beautifully, with pleasing and graceful swara prastharams, leading to an absolutely amazing percussion duet between the seasoned mridangamist Vellore Ramabhadran and the internationally known tabla wizard Zakir Hussain. The percussion solo is captivating, enthralling, and will push you to the edge of your seat. The last two songs, a bhajan in Pilu and one of Lalgudi's own thillanas in Madhuvanti, are very sweet, delicate, and emotionally laden. Keep in mind this is an edited version of the whole concert, and does not include all the songs that were played at Harbourfront in '94. Nevertheless, you will be amazed with what you hear here."
