VS Narasimhan on youtube

VS Narasimhan was originally brought to us by Ilayaraja in his Jazz Phase in the early 1980’s.

Rajapaarvai’s violin concerto

The film was a veritable feast of violin melody.

He followed it up with VS NArasimhan helming his baroque orchestration in the independent album “How to Name it”

This is particularly interesting, he plays around with the brandenberg concerto no 1

and intermittently VS Narasimhan would make an appearance in Illayaraja’s Jazz works.

Kadal meengal

and thenhe sort of went off ilayaraja’s map, and Illayaraja’s music lost a counterpoint and became somewhat more lenier…like this

Udhaya geetham.

So it was a pleasent surprise when I was searching for some malaysia vasudevan songs(he just copped it). and I found that Mr Narashiman has been flourishing creatively, these past few years, even if not in films, conspicuously.

without much ado,

    Effing Seetha’S everywhere, lol. And lenier (sue, of swansongs fame?).

    Spealing of Ilayaraja’s violins, when I was really little, we lived across the street from Mr. Paramasivam, whose 3 sons played violin in Ilayaraja’s troupe. One of them (the shortest and plumpest of the brothers) was real good friends with me.. he used to let me stand in front of his Bajaj scooter (you know how little kids 2 or 3 yrs old stand there in the front) and take me for a ride. Whenever he rode past our house, violin case, strapped on his back, I used to swing on our spiky black-n-white gate and yell “hello, mama”… ah those were the daze.
