Ever since the opening concert in March 2017, Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh has been closely associated with the Pierre Boulez Saal—not only as a performer with several of his ensembles, but also as co-curator of the Night of the Clarinets and the first-ever Arabic Music Days in December 2017, during which he appeared with the Kinan Azmeh CityBand. He now returns headlining this New York–based quartet, which has won acclaim for its exciting blend of classical music, jazz, and the music of Syria.
