Kinan Abou-afach


“Speak” Premiere by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra

The Vermont Symphony Orchestra w/ conductor Christopher James Lees


“Syria was represented by the world premiere of a work celebrating diversity by a recent immigrant composer. Kinan Abou-afach’s “Speak” is a brilliant and dramatic work with a Middle Eastern flavor in which disparate voices— instrumental lines — clash and come together, part and regroup. While its language, though tonal, is decidedly contemporary, the work was received enthusiastically by Sunday’s audience.” — Jim Lowe /
