Music of Kinan Azmeh
Arranged and conducted by Wolf Kerschek
Germany’s preeminent jazz ensemble, the NDR Bigband is made up of the country’s premier soloists, each contributing a strong individual style and musical language to create a striking group sound. The band makes it’s Philadelphia debut alongside Syrian-born and New York-based clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, performing the music of their 2021 album, Flow, with compositions by Azmeh, arranged by Wolf Kerschek. Called “intensely soulful” and a “virtuoso” by The New York Times, Azmeh’s music explores the contrasts and cultural flux he feels while at home in both New York and Damascus.
