A successful first tour for the PBO!

The Pacific Baroque Orchestra (PBO) just completed their first tour outside of their regional BC, presenting their programme Russian White Nights with soprano Karina Gauvin in Ottawa, Boston, Toronto, and Montreal.

The press was enthusiastic about their performance :

In Search of the Russian Soul - The Boston Musical Intelligencer (October 29, 2019)

"The 26-piece orchestra led by Music Director Alexander Weimann at the harpsichord played with rosy refinement"

"Concertmaster Chloe Meyers’s solo turns wafted an elegant lavender-periwinkle"

"[Karina Gauvin's] long legato, especially as it draws to a self-reflective diminuendo end, like a morning glory curling up into itself at eventide, impressed."

Karina Gauvin and the Pacific Baroque Orchestra - OperaRamblings (November 2, 2019)

"Gauvin is hard to beat in this sort of rep. She has a very beautiful, pure voice and ornaments elegantly. She can be quite dramatic too."

"They accompanied sympathetically and had an interesting sort of sound."

"Concertmaster Chloe Meyers played a very skilled version of a violin sonata by Berezovsky (with Weinmann) and the assorted winds came together for a Divertimento by Paisiello."

"Gauvin, who was in glorious voice, gave the recitatives and arias her best."

"Weimann, who conducted either by sitting or standing behind his harpsichord, is an energetic and imaginative leader."

Heureuses retrouvailles avec Karina Gauvin - Le Devoir (November 4, 2019)

"Car le sel de la soirée, outre les retrouvailles avec Karina Gauvin, était un programme d’une originalité et d’une intelligence rares autour des compositeurs de la cour de Russie de la fin du XVIIIe siècle."

"La prestation de Karina Gauvin samedi nous a fait très plaisir."

" [...] la tenue dramatique fiévreuse et impeccable des scènes d’Armide de Gluck (Karina Gauvin a donné « Divinités du Styx » d’Alceste en rappel) a rassuré sur sa forme vocale."
