Summary

What do you consider barrier busting? In taking stock of chamber music in America, use the striking career of Imani Winds as your benchmark. Conventional chamber music was jolted out of its safe haven when this Grammy-nominated ensemble brought its eclectic style to the f ield. To illustrate Imani’s commitment to extending the European canon, the group invited Simon Shaheen, the acclaimed Palestinian óud and violin artist, to compose Zafir (“a gentle breath”).
