Maria Schneider's music has been hailed by critics as "evocative, majestic, magical, heart stoppingly gorgeous and beyond categorization." She and her orchestra became widely known in 1994 when they released their first recording, "Evanescence". With that recording, Schneider began to develop her personal way of writing for her 17-member collective, tailoring her compositions to distinctly highlight the unique voices of the group. Subsequently, the Maria Schneider Orchestra has performed at festivals and concert halls worldwide. Schneider has received numerous commissions and guest conducting invites, working with more than 85 groups from more than 30 countries spanning Europe, South America, Australia, Asia and North America.
"Maria Schneider's orchestral jazz is about feeling. Like Wayne Shorter, she somehow expresses compassion through tones." -The New York Times
