"”The charms of the worldmusic”"

...Tatiana Lina made all the arrangements. And that she did in a most impressive and clever way. An enormous tessiure of her voice leaves you speechless. She sings the high colorature and deep alto with equal strength. Especially ”Sam, Roma, sam” – a Gypsy song, where she sings in duet with the other lady, is a pearl... - Zeeuwsch Vlaanderen, B/N ”De Stem” 06.11.2005


"”Rusalki, a misical enjoyment”"

... The songs were beautifully arranged for 4 voices by Tatiana Lina. Her voice had an enormous reach from the lowest to the highest register. Very different and characteristic voices of the singers were used to the best of their quality. Very often they were sounding as musical instrumenten... - Dussen, 22.07.2001; Hanki Schoorl


"”Brilliant ensemble art from Rusalki”"

...The arrangements, done by Tatiana Lina were very tasteful, and they were supported by the brilliant artistic ensemble work of the ladies. The voices harmonized magnificently. Different vocal colours were used to interpret the songs and an incredibly beautiful lower register of Tatiana gave the songs a truly earthly character...
Rusalki was a delight for the ears...
- Noord-Holland Dagblad, 17.01.2000; Gerard Rooker


"”The hits of the 60’s and comic characters”"

“…The Orchestra” is being staged as a concert of the 60th hits, arranged by Tatiana Lina.
What else can one desire, when the singers eradiate energy and know their craft well, and the music is composed so elegantly, with plenty of small tasteful details!
The text is filled with comical exaggerations and jokes about love and pain of life and it corresponds very well with humour and cleverness of the musical arrangements of the 60s most popular hits…”
- Århus Stifttidende d. 9. marts 2005; Kirsten Dahl


"”Entertaining and honest trade”"

… in this performance there is plenty of space for songs and music. Original pieces, based on the Russian folk, specially written by Tatiana Lina for this show, sound beautiful and complete. Songs are vivid and catchy. They echo the dialogues, as if giving a comment on the action… - Århus Stifttidende d. 11. december 2004; Kirsten Dahl

My greatest inspiration for a song is a great text. I "co-write" songs with poets like W. Shakespeare, F. Villon, A. Pushkin, W. Blake, G. Stein and others.

Everything that I've written untill now, was performed in theatre or in the concerts of an a-capella quartet Rusalki.

I hope to find out if my songs can have "a life of their own"
