Synopsis

This fabric of spirituality unity, from time to time, is reinforced by the presence and influence of poets, philosophers and saint-singers whose contributions have upheld this faith. Among the great composers of South Indian classical music the Trinity of karnatak-music viz: Tyagaraja, Muddusvami Dikshita and Syama Sastri rank supreme over all other composers of all times. This is because they were not only great masters of the art of music but were great saints leading a virtuous life of pure devotion and renunciation. With infinite poetic imagination as well as sheer simplicity of expression, Tyagaraja has composed his music. His work reflect the ardent outpouring of an intense urge of his own to merge with Rama, his personal deity. His compositions are steep in Bhakti Rasa. The compositions of Muddusvami Dikshita shows structural magnificence, tightness in the alignment of Sahitya and rhythm. The unique feature is that, he has composed songs in praise of various deities with full details of the Sthalapurana. Above all, he has composed Krtis in all the 72 Melakarta scales by converting them into Raga by suitable combinations of Arohana and Avarohana in Accordance to its Vadi Samvadi bhava. Whereas, in the compositions of Syamasastri, the major theme is the affection and love of a child in a simple direct language to the mother - AMBA. Further, he has been able to widen the scope of exposition of the RAGAs by creating a zooming effect, which can be discerned in his Svarajatis. The ingenious way in which he entwines Ragabhava with Sahitya into a grip of intricate patterns of Laya is a class by itself; which, in turn, exposes a new dimension of the same Raga to the listener s and at the same time rejuvenatyes the experiences musicians.
