The D'Addario Reserve Reeds are just what I'm looking for - warm, flexible, and responsive throughout the full range of the instrument. A superb line of products!

A D'Addario Woodwinds player since 2011.

Originally a native of Germany, Diane Hunger currently resides in Buffalo, NY and works as freelance saxophonist, saxophone professor, and for the Sigurd M. Raschèr Archive in Fredonia. Diane holds the tenor chair in the critically acclaimed Mana Saxophone Quartet, is a member of the Duo Klang par2, and teaches saxophone at Fredonia, Canisius College, and Roberts Wesleyan College. Previously she taught i.e. at Cornell University and the University of Rochester.

Diane is recognized internationally and performs frequently as soloist and chamber musician throughout Europe and the United States. Recently she could be heard at the Chautauqua Summer Festival, the 7th International Saxophone Festival in Szczecin, Poland, the World Saxophone Congress in Scotland in 2012, as well as the Hartt School of Music, Hartford, Connecticut, Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Utrecht, Netherlands, Carnegie Hall, and Steinway Hall in NYC, and with orchestras such as Eastman Graduate Chamber Orchestra, the symphony orchestra of the Akademie für Tonkunst, Frankfurter Orchestergesellschaft, Wandsbeker Sinfoniker, Mannheimer Bläserphilharmonie, as well as the Landes-Polizei-Orchester Hessen. Additionally, she has toured Spain with the Linda Bangs Darmstadt Akademie Saxophone Orchestra, and recorded for the Bavarian Broadcast Station. Diane is enthusiastic to rediscover music from the past and frequently transcribes music for saxophones. Recent projects include Dvorak’s Terzetto Op. 74 and Libby Larsen’s Yellow Jersey, which was published by Oxford University Press in 2014. Furthermore, Diane is committed to the expansion of dynamic new works for saxophones and frequently interacts and works with composers to expand the repertoire for saxophones including Steven Stuckey, Libby Larsen, Violeta Dinescu, Michael Lanci, and Amos Gillespie.

Diane received a Diplom-Saxophonlehrer with excellence from the Musikhochschule Frankfurt/Darmstadt in 2008, a Masters in Performance from Fredonia in 2009, and a Doctorate of Musical Arts together with an Arts Leadership Certificate from The Eastman School of Music in 2014. While at Eastman, Diane served as Dr. Chien-Kwan Lin’s teaching assistant, was awarded the prestigious Performer’s Certificate, and won the 2011 Eastman Concerto Competition playing Frank Martin’s Ballade. In 2012 she won the American Protégé International Competition for Piano and Strings, because of which she was invited to play her debut in Weill Recital Hall in April 2012. During her undergraduate degree, Diane was the only elected instrumentalist to perform a concerto with the Darmstadt Akademie Orchestra in 2007 and was a national prize winner in the German competition Jugend musiziert in 2003.

Diane studied with Linda Bangs, Bruce Weinberger, Chien-Kwan Lin, and Wildy Zumwalt and participated in numerous masterclasses including those given by Carina Raschèr, the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, Jean-Marie Londeix, and John-Edward Kelly.
