Grammy Award-winning woodwind player Kinan Azmeh and Sri Lankan-born Canadian keyboard master Dinuk Wijeratne defy expectations for clarinet-and-piano music. The instrumentalists join forces for a collaborative project called the Art of the Duo, in which the piano sometimes acts as a rhythmic percussion instrument alongside melodic clarinet playing. Complex Stores, Simple Sounds, the twosome’s 2010 album, showcases their fusion of Arabic and Southeast Asian vocabulary with elements of classical and jazz music. Both composers also improvise during their live performance, which is followed by a Q&A called “Creativity, Syria and Sri Lanka.”
