  4. Very nice collection. The Pittsburgh concert is 1985 and the MSA/TCN tour is 1983. The 1973 Academy concert violinist is CR Mani Iyer, not Sethuramiah. The TNK/VR Delhi concert is 1971. The MC/TCN concert is not Bombay but Music Academy 1981. Music Academy 1962 was not TNK/Raghu, so this is some other concert.

  5. Please post a concert from the Venue : Kresge Auditorium, MIT
    Date : June 19, 1993
    Or kvn’s saveri adi tala varnam individually
