Dinuk Wijeratne, piano
Kinan Azmeh, clarinet

Hear the world premiere of a new piece by Dinuk Wijeratne and Kinan Azmeh, specially commissioned by The Royal Conservatory/Koerner Hall, as well as other original works that deftly mix delicate arrangements and adventurous improvisation. The duo's unique blend of Middle Eastern, South Asian, classical, and jazz influences has taken them from Berlin's Philharmonie and Boulez Saal to Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and beyond.

A member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, Syrian clarinetist Azmeh has been called a “virtuoso” and “intensely soulful” by The New York Times, “spellbinding” by The New Yorker, and the CBC has noted his “incredibly rich sound.” Boundary-crossing Sri Lankan-Canadian composer Dinuk Wijeratne has been described by the Toronto Star as “an artist who reflects a positive vision of our cultural future” and by The New York Times as “exuberantly creative.”
