Baudelaire & Piano

susanna sonata

heavyweight lp

Released: 25th Sep 2020


out of stock

Beauty with an edge of strangeness; In Susanna’s haunting PERFORMANCE of his poetry, backed only by herself on piano, baudelaire’s work has found its ideal transmitter.

A record made in isolation, stripped back to just her expressive, soulful voice and skeletal, trancelike piano playing. The light touch allows the extraordinary qualities of Baudelaire’s writing to shine through. Like much of Baudelaire’s work, Susanna’s music probes the limits of desire, and confronts the simultaneous wonder and meaningless of existence. his urban observations frequently dipped into fantasy, sensuality, fevered imagings and eerie horror. Susanna’s selection of ten texts from his masterwork - ‘The Flowers of Evil’ - cover the full spectrum of Baudelaire’s conflicted expression. Here you’ll find a creepy cast of witches, pagans, wolves, perverts, thugs, ghosts, vampires and demons. A must for fans of mariss Nadler, kathyrn joseph and early joan shelley.
