Karina Gauvin has a voice like liquid gold and moves with the music as if she were a character in a play. Recognized internationally for her brilliance in the Baroque repertoire, Karina Gauvin’s international career includes performances as Armida in Handel’s Rinaldo at Glyndebourne, Vitellia in Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito in Paris, and Armide in Gluck’s Armide with the Netherlands Opera.
Founded by Francis Colpron in 1991, the acclaimed Les Boréades de Montréal focuses on music of the Baroque era. The Ensemble plays on period instruments and adheres to the rules of performance practice of the past. Critics and audiences alike praise the group’s energy and spontaneity as well as its theatrical, expressive and elegant playing. Purcell, their recording with Karina Gauvin of music by Henry Purcell, was nominated for a 2007 JUNO as Best Classical Album of the Year.
