Guerrero, Victoria; Labourdette, Natalia

Natalie Labourdette (soprano) and Victoria Guerrero (piano) make up an internationally award-winning art song duo that has released its debut album on GENUIN. The track list includes 20th-century vocal music based around the experience of "la petite mort", as the French language refers to the climax of lovemaking. "La petite mort": this is an existential experience, the desire to "linger", deep loneliness, and happy union! Alban Berg, Gabriel Fauré, Samuel Barber, and other great composers of classical modernism created miniature masterpieces – and the two young musicians dedicate themselves to this repertoire with a great sense of tonal color and interpretive clarity!
