Proud to be featured (next some other amazing artists) on Radio Guy Live by the brilliant Guy Livingston: “a whole new show, with old friends! New releases, new CDs, as I catsup with the artists we’ve featured on the podcast this year. Listen now! Music of Christopher Culpo Evan Hause Donal Fox Ingrid Eel Gene Pritsker Sophie Dunér and many more dear friends!”
“Her voice is as exciting as a roller coaster. It feels like danger, like she´s going to go flying off the rails, but one is constantly reassured that she´s securely attached, firmly grounded. So many surprises, so many registers, colors, so much humor, and sometimes melancholy, all coming out of that golden throat of hers! Truly amazing.” – José Luís Greco, composer

The Art Music Lounge: – “This album is a killer. Nearly every track comes at you like an assault of rhythm in which the twists and turns of the music keep you on the edge of your seat. Improvising like a jazz horn. Many such singers have claimed this distinction, but only a handful, Dunér, Mark Murphy & Anita O’Day among them, have ever really achieved this. There’s an elemental, animal excitement in everything Dunér sings that grabs you by the throat & pulls you out of complacency.” PURCHASE HERE
`The City of My Soul´ in `Hora de Salida´ at `La Tortuga´, Madrid
Music from `The City of My Soul´ [produced by Michael Haas, released on PARMA recordings] is again being featured during the theatre play `Hora de Salida´ (written by Jonuel Pozo, directed by Alejandro Arroyo). The show goes on every Friday during May at `La Tortuga´ in Madrid.
From Baroque to Bop and Beyond
Two excerpts [about Sophies CD `The City of My Soul´] from the publication `From Baroque to Bop and Beyond´:
– “We begin with Kairo – there are less notes here than in any single bar of Gershwin’s An American in Paris, but it is infinitely richer in content and better music.”
– “Sophie Dunér has here provided a matrix for jazz-classical vocal writing in the new millennium, a means of presenting the singing voice in a context that could work within a jazz oratorio or opera.”
