Notes & Reviews:

"Gauvin is a seductive interpreter of [Les Illuminations]. Her glinting sound gives a diamantine shimmer to the heroic passages, yet she never sacrifices the essential warmth and sensuousness of her voice. It's perfect for Britten's 'fire seen through ice' sound world which combines purity and passion in a particularly Gallic way." -International Record Review
