Overview

Get swept along on the magical currents of storied journeys and captivating improv. The Persian-flavored, jazz-tinged music of Syrian-born clarinetist/ composer Kinan Azmeh gets things off to a rousing start, followed by the similarly infectious exoticism of Debussy’s Ibéria. Rimsky-Korsakov’s marvelous masterwork Scheherazade caps off the evening with adventure and wonder.

Kinan Azmeh • Syrian-born clarinetist/ composer

From his cello-playing start at 3 to his concerto debut at 7, this prodigious young talent was hailed as an accomplished musician before he’d completed undergrad studies at the Juilliard School. Now a Koyner Fellow at Juilliard, he’s logged appearances with the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra and Boston Symphony, among others, with plenty more on the horizon.
