A Far Cry + Kinan Azmeh and Dinuk Wijeratne

About This Show

The evening is filled entirely with Ravinia premieres as world-class clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and genre-defying pianist Dinuk Wijeratne join chamber orchestra A Far Cry at the Martin Theatre. The program opens with Syrian-American composer Kareem Roustom’s Dabke for string orchestra, a piece exploring a folk dance from Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon that is typically performed at joyous occasions. The musicians continue with two pieces illustrating the clarinetist and pianist’s rich history of collaboration, Azmeh’s Ibn Arabi Postlude and Wijeratne’s Clarinet Concerto. Czech composer Leoš Janáček is also in the spotlight as the concert wraps with his Idyll for string orchestra.
