Description

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM MARCH 11 TO JUNE 5.

This stunning project from Syrian born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and Sri Lankan-born pianist Dinuk Wijeratne, rising stars in the new classical music movement, offers a mix of driving explorations and meditations drawing on influences from the Middle East and Subcontinent to Bartók and beyond. A NY premiere!
 
Kinan Azmeh, a lavishly talented, intensely soulful Syrian clarinetist, performed jazz-saturated original compositions.  – The New York Times
Dinuk Wijeratne, an exuberantly creative Sri Lankan pianist, transformed his instrument into a drum, a zither and a scampering melodic partner.  – The New York Times

Cosponsored by the Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center.
