L Subramanyam - Violin

Subramanyam, Shankar and Vaidyanathan, the three able sons of a proud father Sri Lakshminarayana are great violinists. I heard them for the first time in 70s. I was a student at P G centre  (OU),  Warangal doing my M.Sc. course. It was an AIR concert held in the Kaktiya Medical College hall. Someone who knew my interest gave me an invitation. I never realised their greatness at that time. It was a good experience. That is all. I am also surprised that I saw the Giant of an Artist Sri Palghat Mani Iyer there. I was listening to music then also. But never knew much about people.

Later, the brothers attained great heights in the world music. Sri Subramanyam is still around and does programmes in India. I really don't know where the other two brothers are.

Sri Subramsnyams style enthrals scholars and beginners alike. He has what is called as vigour in his music. If Mani iyer is playing along, it comes ot much more vigorous.

Here is one such old recording of Sri L Subramnyam on Violin supported on the Mridangam by legend Sri Mani Iyer.
