Intriguing programs of great beauty and breadth have distinguished the PRISM Quartet as one of America’s foremost chamber ensembles. “A bold ensemble that set the standard for contemporary-classical saxophone quartets” (The New York Times), PRISM has been presented by Carnegie Hall, appeared as soloists with the Cleveland Orchestra, and conducted residencies at the Curtis Institute. Two-time winners of the CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, PRISM has commissioned nearly 300 works, including from MacArthur Fellows and Pulitzer Prize winners. PRISM has collaborated with So, Partch, Ethel, BMOP, The Crossing, Jason Moran, Tyshawn Sorey, and Miguel Zenón, and recorded for ECM, Naxos, Koch, Innova, Albany, and XAS, their own label.
