Karina Gauvin, the Canadian soprano, has almost a cult-like following 

American Record Guide
2020

No doubt it’s to inspire you to buy more recordings of Gauvin—and I can’t think of a good reason not to.

Erin Heisel - American Record Guide

Gauvin is alternately regal and fiery, intimidating and vulnerable. Her voice is very even and attractive

American Record Guide
2020

Karina Gauvin’s singing is exactly what I had expected: simply superb! She has a marvellous voice, but more than that: she digs deep in the texts and catches the drama to perfection.

Gauvin’s Gluck is particularly classy 2020 Gramophone

...arias sung by Gauvin would be cause enough for rejoicing …. Gauvin blows you away with her liquid legato, crackling coloratura and, (I’ve run out of alliteration), clarion top notes .

Ariama

Glorious….. Gauvin’s rich sound has nothing of the boy treble in it; it is a full lyric soprano…. It isn’t merely that she sings with vibrato- she simply has vibrato that she will occasionally eschew for effect ; it is her echt womanliness that come across so vividly.
