Notes & Reviews:

This album marks the Mana Quartet's debut release. Vide Supra features four brand new works dedicated to the ensemble by American composers. Representing the group's highly successful Sight & Sound Project, three of the four works were composed as aural sketches of paintings by Julie Mehretu, Jackson Pollock and Salvador Dali. Having extensively toured the project across the United States and abroad, these three well-tested works offer a compact look at Mana's multi-sensory concert experience: engaging audiences with expressive, flexible repertoire.
