Nedunuri Krishnamurthy

220px-NedunuriKrishnaMurthy

A great musician and tunesmith too who had a good long innings and engaged us music lovers for a long time.

According to S R Jankiraman who spent time with Nedunuri at the S V University in Tirupati, talked about the time with him and also what a great tunesmith he was. In a lecdem of sorts, he sang a whole bunch of Annamayya compositions tuned by Nedunuri and while singing some of them he had tears in his eyes reminiscing his times, the companionship with Nedunuri and how the music and the lyrics gelled together.

I had the opportunity of listening to him primarily on AIR and a couple of times in person. One of them was at Pittsburgh in the 90’s and it was a great concert.

Now to the concerts, where his favorite accompaniment was Lalgudi Jayaraman (perhaps the preference was mutual) and many others.

First concerts with Lalgudi Jayaraman as the accompanying violinist.

  1. Nedunuri-Lalgudi combination was unbeatable! One of my friends (Sampath, with whom I must have attended most of the concerts that I had) will simply ‘melt’ at the mention of this ‘twins’. The melody and bhavam that used to blossom out of their concerts transports one to a different world.

    I am sure to savor all these shared concerts several times!

    • I see the players. The page loads a bit slowly – if you wait for about 10-12 seconds you will see the players displaying.

  2. Hello sir, I came across your site by sheer accident, when I was craving to hear Kedaragowla… Thank you so much; your tastes are indeed exquisite, and it is so kind of you to share your collection. I will be hanging out here for a long time 🙂

  3. How inappropriate to have a heading of “YAB” (Yet Another Blog) for such a wonderful gift to readers. It should be “OBTM” (Only Blog That Matters). Thank you, Shankar sir, for gifting these invaluable, priceless assets to us public.

  4. Namaskaram,
    Great set of concerts! A real feast for rasikas.Enjoying every bit of it. Thank you for sharing.

    The second concert starting with Bhairavi varnam, mridangam sounds like it is Vellore Ramabhadran ..it is labled Karaikudi Mani. Any thoughts?

    Thanks
    Narayanan

    • Sorry, I am of little help here. I am not capable of identifying mridangam and depend on the info provided or by people who can recognize. Palghat Mani Iyer is perhaps the only one I sometimes can guess correctly.

  5. Sir, here are 2 Nedunuri Music Academy concerts which you can share here.
