Music has always been this maestros passion, indeed his life’s breath. Quoting him in his own words I am nothing without music. Even in all my future births, I want to be born only as a musician. Music has not only been my livelihood but also my path to spirituality. If God granted me a wish, I would ask Him to make me twenty-five years younger. I want to delve deeper into the ocean of music. Such is his passion and devotion to music.

Here is a magnificent concert of this living legend in a DVD format. He is accompanied by his son G.J.R.Krishnan and his daughter Vijayalakshmi on the violin, both being extremely talented and popular today in the music field. Vellore Sri Ramabhadran, a doyen among artists has accompanied on the mridangam and Sri Vikku Vinayakaram an artist of international fame has accompanied on the Ghatam. Both percussionists are legends in their respective fields. A Visual as well as aural splendor to one and all!
