NEW CD "Entwined" Duo Naranjo-Weurlander
Duo Naranjo-Weurlander is a cross-border duo in a broad sense. Although their music originates from two different cultures, there are more things that unite than separate them. The intensity, the power, the melancholy and the expressive phrasings are a common feature in their music. They have ability to rapidly vacillate from duo playing into functioning as one body with a seemingly common thought and direction. Through a large number of concerts they know each other's instincts so well that they simply let the music flow. Maybe each of them has found her musical soul mate. Maybe the music is a universal language that unites more than it separates.
Entwined is the duo's first album, consisting mostly of their own compositions. Three pieces written for the duo by composer Kjell Edstrand, also appear on the album.
Tania Naranjo (Chile), piano-voice-composition
Minna Weurlander (Finland): concert accordion-composition
