By Norman Lebrecht
The Syrian clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh, who struggled to get back to his US home during the Trump travel ban, has been named composer-in-resident at Classical Movements, a DC-based music org.
Classical Movements will commission Kinan to compose a work for full orchestra, as well as chamber and choral pieces.
