Kinan Azmeh. Florian Weber
Brahms: composed and improvised

The Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and the pianist Florian Weber from Detmold – two of the most creative and expressive musicians of our days – are connected not only by their long-standing friendship and the common commuter existence between jazz and classical music and between improvisation, interpretation and own composition. The two also share a love of chamber music by Johannes Brahms. The latter's late clarinet sonatas in F minor and E-flat major form the starting point for the duo's free elaborations, in which unexpected harmonic progressions, ecstatic melodic arcs and powerful climaxes tend to create high tension.
