Carnatic music is based on compositions, a significant number of which may be attributed to Shyma Shastri (1762 ? 1827AD), Tyagaraja (1767 ? 1847 AD) and Muthuswami Dikshitar (1775 ? 1835 AD), three prolific 18th century saint composers, collectively known as the ?Trinity?. They had a unique style of composing, through which their individuality and expressiveness shone brightly. Shyama Shastri?s compositions express intricate rhythmic patterns, while those of Tyagaraja present a comfortable blend of emotion, devotion, melody and those of Muthuswami Dikshitar are rich in their astounding lyrical and melodic juxtaposition. In this presentation, Sri Sanjay Subrahmanyan one of the top ranking musicians of South India present three compositions, one from each of the Trinity. In the Tyagaraja kriti ?Manasa Yetulortune? the composer chides his own mind for not listening to his guidance; that of spending time, extolling the virtues of Lord Rama. In kriti ? Geeti Chakra? Muthuswami Dikshitar offers salutations to Goddess Shyamala, who is worshiped by Guru Guha and has also established in the ?Geeti Chakra Ratha?. The third composition is the serenely majestic ?Palintsu Kamakshi?. Shyama Shastri pleads with Goddess Kamakshi, the Mother of the Universe, the enchanting quintessence of compassion and the interminable annihilator of sins, to protect him and obliterate his miseries.
