Natalie Labourdette (soprano) and Victoria Guerrero (piano) make up an internationally award-winning art song duo that has released its debut CD on GENUIN. The tracklist includes 20th-century vocal music based around the experience of "la petite mort", as the French language refers to the climax of lovemaking. 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 colour and interpretative clarity!
