Letters to the Editor
Sir, The demise of Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer has left a void in the world of Carnatic music. A musical genius and stalwart with a simple lifestyle, he radiated joy and peace. The twinkle in his eyes endeared him to his fans. He transported us to a totally different world during his concerts.
Alladi Sarada Balasubramanian,
Sir, Semmangudi represented the original gurukula traditions of Carnatic music. His fans were pleasantly stunned when his first gramophone record was released in 1931. His alapana of `Karaharapriya' was the piece de resistance in the album and was also the talk, for days on end, in music circles.
