With her enchanting voice, profound musicality and extraordinary vocal range, the Canadian soprano Karina Gauvin has been seducing audiences and critics around the world. Following the immense success of her CD Handel Arias, she returns with a new recording of arias, most never recorded, from the operas of Nicola Porpora (1686-1768).
“Historians and musicians have assumed than Porpora was an also-ran but such dismissive judgements are in need of some reconsideration. There is no reason why we cannot appreciate and enjoy Porpora's music on its own terms - not least when the singer is the marvellous Karina Gauvin. The disc ends with just over half an hour of highlights from Arianna in Nasso: Gauvin's singing is spellbinding in the climactic scene in which poor Ariadne awakes and gradually realises to her horror that Theseus has abandoned her...” Gramophone Magazine, March 2010
