Called a “groundbreaking ensemble” by the Los Angeles Chronicle, the Mana Quartet has repeatedly won high praise from today’s leading composers, noted as an ensemble that is “vigorous and accomplished…deserving every success” and “beautifully balanced…a new bright light in the world of chamber music” by Pulitzer Prize winners Charles Wuorinen and Ellen Taafe Zwilich. Championed as “Saxophone Ambassadors” by Chamber Music Magazine, Mana embodies its namesake as a pervasive force, advocating for the saxophone in classical music.
