TANIA NARANJO – MALMÖ SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, conductor INGAR BERGBY /(Nutida Pionjärer dubble concert) “ …Den här akten genomfördes med energi hos solisterna som knappt gav publiken tid att andas. Beställningsverket “Duel of hearts” visade hur väl Naranjo och Weurlander kompletterar varandra och “Utöya” träffade både i hjärtat och hjärnan, precis som det var tänkt.-Skånska Dagbladet

Naranjo’s “Soleil”…with its closing drama of pounding piano and high-piches accordion, is enjoyably dramatic..” “…it´s in moments when the fire or pathos of tango come to the surface that it gets nearest to taking flight…” SONGLINES MAGAZINE Duo Naranjo-Weurlander “INFINITY“

Movie scoreThe Ape Star”/”Apstjärnan” (Tania Naranjo & Minna Weurlander) It’s not often that you hear any meaningful amount of accordion in film music, let alone hear it dominate a score. This makes Apstjärnan a true rarity. Tania Naranjo and Minna Weurlander’s score for this Swedish language Scandinavian co-production is inspired, an endless source of energy and whimsy bolstered by its novel instrumentation. Weurlander (the band master and accordionist in Philip Glass’s upcoming Circus Days and Nights world premiere in Malmö) brings a bouncing vibrancy that Naranjo balances (and amplifies) with her delicate piano work. Though the intercontinental duo (Naranjo is Chilean while Weurlander is Finnish) have released several albums together, this is their first foray into film composing, but hopefully not their last!

“Tania Naranjo’s composition, Spirits, seduced me with her mysterious vocals.” Piteå Tidning

TANIA NARANJO -solo “Konsertens nav var dock Tania Naranjo, som uttryckte kärleken till Violeta Parra med sin historia och hela person…

“Mötet på scenen med Arja Saijonmaa blev naturligtvis starkt. Att sedan Tania Naranjo kvällen igenom spelade virtuost piano och med sin mörka röst sjöng både storslaget passionerat och stilla återhållet gjorde knappast det hela sämre.” 

Naranjos composition. Andes, was very beautiful with harmonies and a mood that had a lot in common with Piazzolla’s new tango. (Duo Naranjo-Weurlander)-Sydsvenskan

“Tania accentuates with a liberal and yet powerful playfulness.  Her vocals were also as beguiling as they were seductive.” Jönköpingsposten

TANIA NARANJO-solo “Tania Naranjo gave a highly evocative concert” TV Skierniewice- Poland  

ORKESTERJOURNALEN

The two musicians are exquisitely skilled instrumentalists and they convey their music forward with deftness “……”alternating heavyness and sharpness and indicating certain sadness …”

About Orange Tech & Latin Ensemble:

Stram musik, disciplinerad, men suggestiv, viljestark och sugen på utbrytningar och improvisationer. En sorts ödesmättad värdighet styrde och band samman tillsammans

med ”berättaren” Tania Naranjos sång, som fick bli omväxlande mörk dramatisk, flickaktig, teatral och rent lekfullt… SYDSVENSKAN
