Kinan Azmeh


Dima Orsho


Syrian clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh, artist in focus of the Pierre Boulez Saal, brings his latest collaboration to Berlin: Songs for Days to Come is a journey of music and poetry that explores themes such as home, faith, and friendship. Azmeh has set contemporary Syrian poems in chamber music soundscapes that meld Arabic and Western traditions with improvisation and spoken voices. The result is a powerful expression of the freedom that can be found in art, music, and literature in troubling times.
