Canadian superstar soprano Karina Gauvin pays tribute to baroque diva Anna Maria Strada del Pò, singing rarities by Vinci, Vivaldi and some of the greatest Handel arie di bravura. Like Strada del Pò in her prime, Miss Gauvin sings this repertoire with powerful expression and brilliant technique, in particular, the trills for which Strada del Pò was renowned. More than thirteen opera roles were created by Handel for Strada del Pò (including Sosarme, Orlando, and Alcina). 
Karina Gauvin has impressed audiences and critics the world over with her luscious timbre, profound musicality and wide vocal range. The Globe and Mail calls her “one of the dream sopranos of our time.” The Sunday Times in London also wrote: “Her glinting soprano, bright-edged yet deliciously rounded and sensual, is used with rare understanding for character... ”

 "... I cannot recommend this CD highly enough. This is Baroque singin on a very high level ..."

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - January/February 2013


                      Performance *****           Recording *****
"...Her [Gauvin] warm-timbered voice, impreccable intonation, athletic technique and tautly controlled vibrato are virtues ideally suited to the exacting musicl demands of Baroque opera. She is furthermore sensitive to textual nuance, bringing expressive subtlety to her chosen arias, notably in ’Verdi piante’(Handel’s Orlando)... The excellent Arion Orchestre Baroque offers sympathetic support throughout ... Alexander Weimann directs stylishly from the harpsichord."
 
Nicholas Anderson - BBC Music magazine - February 2013
