Tatjana Vorel

(born in Krizevci, Republic of Croatia) composer. She started to play the piano at the age of 4. Presently, Tatjana's main interest in music is composing. She perfected her composing skills by a number of recognized Croatian composers, like Davorin Kempf, Ruben Radica and Berislav Sipus. Some of her compositions are successfully performed in Croatia and abroad. Part of Tatjana's vocal work is recorded and published. Her style is lyric, but some of her compositions can be aligned in opus: for solo instruments (Harp, Piano, Flute, Cello, Horn, Marimba, Organ), for voice with Piano accompaniment (Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Tenor, Baritone), for solo instrument with Piano accompaniment (Flute, Clarinet, Horn, Cello), for mixed choir, for various chambre ensembles, and opera. Part of her musical life is, without doubt, conducting. Since she was always close to the vocalist, either through compositions or teaching, most of her conducting work was with choirs. She was assistant conductor to a number of prominent choirs, like Zagreb Philharmonics Choir, girls choir "Zvjezdice" (one of the best choirs in this part of Europe) as well as many others. But, not only for choirs, She was also assistant conductor of the Railroad Brass Band from Zagreb. Outside composing and conducting, Tatjana Vorel is active in music pedagogy. Since finishing the study of Music Theory at Music Academy in Zagreb (Croatia), she has been teaching almost all theory themes (Solfeggio, Harmony, Polyphony, etc) at Music School "V. Lisinski" in Zagreb. In her pedagogical work, she achieved appreciable results, where so called "inductive" approach (in which she herself specializes!) resulted in a number of successful students and musicians. As performer and pianist, Tatjana Vorel is active as well. Parallel to the study of music theory, she attended the full time study program of piano in the class of D. Stanetti. Later on, she participated in a two year study of the organ, at the Institute of Church Music in Zagreb, in the class of Mario Penzar.
