In 1986, Ma received the Fulbright scholarship and went to the United States. He was awarded a National Award for Arts in 1999 and a National Cultural Award in 2007. Bernard Holland once praised Ma for "letting his instruments speak in a European voice but with an Asian mind." Much of Ma's work was inspired by beiguan, nanguan, and Taiwanese opera. Among his best-known works are Rainy Harbor Sketch and Bamboo-Flute Concerto. He is the first Taiwanese composer to have had his work performed at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Ma died at the age of 75 on 2 May 2015. His remains were cremated four days later.
