Karina Gauvin, soprano

ACD2 3017
• Karina Gauvin's recordings, which include her solo CDs on the ATMA label as well as contributions to more than 40 other discs, have won numerous prizes, including a Chamber Music America Award for her disc Fête Galante with pianist Marc-André Hamelin, a Juno Award, a Félix for Prima donna, and several Opus prizes.

• In January 2016 Karina Gauvin will perform in Handel's Partenope with the Pomo d'Oro Ensemble in France, Spain, Netherlands, and Germany.

“Karina Gauvin (…) seems incapable of a vocal ornament, a run of coloratura notes, or a word coloring that doesn't have considerable emotional impact.   While some Handel collections can feel like a vocal demonstration, this is a journey you don't want to end.”   The Philadelphia Enquirer

“Divine Karina” is how Montreal music critic Claude Gingras described Karina Gauvin.   The Canadian soprano has won rapturous acclaim in North America and Europe over the last two decades.   This new compilation recording features airs by Handel, Purcell, Vivaldi, and Mozart drawn from her ATMA Classique discography.   Karina joins her sister Nathalie - a singer in her own right - for a bonus track called You, My Sister.   Tyler Williams composed this samba-flavoured song, and the Gauvin sisters wrote the lyrics.   Not to be missed!
