Sound Wired Concerts presents The Mana Saxophone Quartet

mana_700

A veritable icon in the contemporary music scene, the Mana Quartet presents fresh 21st-century repertoire and 20th-century tours de force masterworks on vintage instruments built to the 19th-century specifications of the saxophone’s inventor, Adolphe Sax. Reflecting a Romantic aesthetic of the orchestral tradition in which the saxophone was originally conceived — an intrinsically warm, highly dynamic, colorfully versatile identity – Mana Quartet is the fervent innovator, blurring conventional boundaries for the instrument by redefining the medium and winning audiences with sonorities so old they’re “new.”
