About us

Soprano Natalia Labourdette (Madrid) and pianist Victoria Guerrero Victoria Guerrero (Jerez) will release their first concept album on 3 June 2022 signed by the record label and GENUIN classics.

petite MORT takes its name from the ambivalence implicit in the selection of works by composers such as A. Berg, E. W. Korngold, G. Fauré, F. Poulenc, S. Barber and J. Turina, constantly sway between eroticism and death.

The visual aspect of the CD has been created with the artist Sergio Pablos creative development . This impressive design will be available for purchase on merchandising items.

The project

The concept of petite mort is the thematic thread of the programme. Eroticism, death and religiousness come together in texts that express loneliness, fear, resentment, passion and love, and asceticism.

From the French petite mort, this is understood as a brief loss or weakening of consciousness, most commonly referred to the freeing sensation that invades our body after an orgasm, thus comparing it to death or to a short period of melancholy or transcendence as a result of the expenditure of life force.

This is why MORT will be written in capital letters, while petite will be written in small letters. This fundamental idea unites in an astonishing way seven composers of such different styles as Berg, Fauré, Barber, Poulenc, Korngold and Turina.

Sergio Pablos has been in charge of our CD cover design and has managed to visually capture in a full of symbolism illustration what the songs’ lyrics inspire us.

FAQ

  • ¿Puedo realizar una aportación de importe libre?

    No, solo se pueden aportar las cantidades exactas definidas en las recompensas. Si alguien quiere hacer una aportación de otra cantidad, se puede poner en contacto con nosotras y crearemos una recompensa por ese valor e indicaremos que se trata de una aportación desinteresada.

    Por otra parte, fuera del Crowdfunding contamos con Bizum y con una cuenta en PayPal (labourdette.soprano@gmail.com), para usar en estas situaciones.

  • ¿Para qué necesitáis ahora una campaña de Crowdfunding si el CD ya se lanza en junio?

    La campaña de crowdfunding la hemos enfocado como campaña para recaudar los fondos que nosotras ya hemos adelantado para la grabación del disco y como campaña de venta del CD, y por tanto de difusión de nuestro trabajo.
