Far From Home – ON-DEMAND
Part of: Sounds & Stories
Syrian composer-clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, a member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad collective, performs three of his own chamber works exploring the concept of “home” through three locations of personal significance. Café Damas evokes a coffee shop in his hometown of Damascus in the 50s; The Fence, The Rooftop, and the Distant Sea is set in Beirut and focuses on the memory of home after a long absence; and In the Element moves to Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music in New Hampshire, where Azmeh spent time as a teenager and to which he has returned regularly over the course of three decades.
Sounds & Stories is supported by a leadership gift from Carol B. Grossman and additional generous support from Alden Toevs.
