Musician-led string ensemble Palaver Strings presents “Elements,” a program featuring award-winning clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and percussionist Brian Adler that explores the fluid space between improvisation and composition, drawing on classical, jazz, and Syrian folk elements.

“Elements” features three pieces by Azmeh, including the premiere of a new piece for strings, his “Suite for Improviser and Orchestra” and “In The Element,” originally scored for string quartet and clarinet.

“In The Element” takes its name from the experience of a warm summer run in the rain, and speaks to broader themes of feeling in (or out) of one’s element musically and culturally.

These themes are echoed in Kareem Roustom’s “Dabke for String Orchestra” and Brian Adler’s “Rudram,” based on a Vedic chant that he heard growing up in an ashram.

▪️ Kareem Roustom: Dabke
▪️Kinan Azmeh: “Syrian Dances” (Commission for Palaver Strings)

▪️Kinan Azmeh: Suite for Improviser and Orchestra (w/ percussionist)
