About

Nuits blanches (White Nights) is a much anticipated new recording by soprano Karina Gauvin, who stylishly animates the opera heroines of the 18th-century Russian court. Musical life during the reign of Tsar Peter the Great was a rich blend of diverse styles and influences originating from all over Europe. Karina is supported by the Pacific Baroque Orchestra.

Tsar Peter the Great was known for his love of music, a tradition that was carried on by his successors, the Empresses Anne, Elizabeth, and Catherine II, who cultivated cosmopolitan tastes for all kinds of music, including opera. Karina Gauvin sings arias from rarely heard operas by Russian composers such as Dmitri Stepanovich Bortniansky (Alcide) and Maxim Sozontovich Berezovsky (Demofoonte), and German composer Christoph Willibald Gluck (Armide).

 Karina Gauvin’s recordings include her solo CDs on the ATMA Classique label as well as contributions to more than 50 other discs, and have won numerous prizes including a Chamber Music America Award for Fête Galante with pianist Marc-André Hamelin, a JUNO and a Félix for Prima donna, and several Opus prizes and three Grammy nominations.
