Home Within is an outstanding piece by clarinetist Kinan Azmeh which expresses his emotions and frustration with the situation in his home country of Syria. It’s a powerful work and speakers to the power of music, specifically the clarinet, as a too for political, social, and cultural action. Tom Power, the host of CBC Radio’s Q, interviewed Mr. Azmeh about the power of his art. You can listen to this interview here. I will post more about this important work in the coming days.
