FOUR HOUR CONCERTS
Mudhra has been the pioneer in the revival of long duration concerts as 4 hour concert, wherein the traditional kutcheri with elaborate raga alapanas, niravals & swarams, intricate ragam tanam pallavi and grand compositions have been presented in a well spaced manner. First four hour concert was organised in 1990 as an experimental concert by Sri.O.S.Thiagarajan with a questioning as 1) whether the listerners have the patience to sit for 4 hours 2) whether the musicians have the capacity to sing concert successfully for 4 hours or 3) the organizations have not thought about organising such long duration concerts. This was proved success with a hall packed music lovers during the first four hour concert. This made Mudhra to continue this concept of 4 hours very often as a treat to music lovers and a challenge to the musicians. In fact, this concert which is featured in the December Art Festival of Mudhra every year, is a much talked about and hall-packed event.
