CHANDIGARH, Feb 11 — It was a delightful show. Today’s performance by Dr Suresh Gopal Shrikhande was laced with melody, and was all about a delectable blend of youth and maturity. Ever since the recital was announced by the Pracheen Kala Kendra authorities, it was being much awaited.

The wait, however, finally ended with Dr Shrikhande performing at his melodious best. A disciple of Pandit Nivruti Bua Sarnaik, Dr Shrikhande began his recital with raag Bihag in Vilambit khayaal, Kaise sukh sove. Man ki veen baaji in drut khayaal was equally powerfully rendered. Then came the next rendering in the form of Baar baar binti karat hari (raag Bageshri) in Madhya laya ek taal. This was followed by a delightful tarana in Drut.

All through it was a spell-binding performance by the great vocalist who further established an association with the audience by singing a Kabir bhajan Beet gaye din bhajan bina re, set in Mishra Shivranjani raag. Last but not the least came a thumri from Dr Suresh. Chailava na daro gulaal, in raag Mishra Bhairavi, won the singer great applause as it bared the exquisite blend of classical and thumri traditions which his voice offered.
