Brooklyn Rider & Kinan Azmeh
May 6, 2019
The most versatile of string quartets joins with with Kinan Azmeh, the “spellbinding” Syrian clarinetist from Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble (New Yorker), for the debut of an exciting new project. New works by the quartet’s violinist, Colin Jacobsen, and Azmeh share the program a variety of traditional and folk-inspired music. Hear why "the dazzling fingers-in-every-pie versatility that Brooklyn Rider exhibits is one of the wonders of contemporary music.” (L A Times)
