Then join us for Kinan Azmeh, clarinet, and Dinuk Wijeratne, piano for Complex Stories, Simple Sounds. Hailed as a “virtuoso” by the New York Times, and “engagingly flamboyant” by the L.A. Times, Kinan Azmeh is one of Syria’s rising young stars. His utterly distinctive sound is now fast gaining international recognition. As one of the most eclectic talents of Canada’s new generation, Sri Lankan-born Dinuk Wijeratne was recently praised by the CBC as an artist “internationally respected for his virtuosity and sensitivity as a musician”. In redefining the sound of the piano he has been captivating audiences with his poetry and imagination.
