Angele Dubeau & La Pieta: Bio

Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà is a string orchestra with piano, composed of all top-ranking female musicians, amongst the best in the country. The excellence, precision and strength of each one, as well as the closeness that they have with each other, grant them an exceptional ensemble sound and contribute to the communicative pleasure that the orchestra imparts.

With her associates, Angèle Dubeau has travelled to South America and Asia, as well as several times throughout Canada and the United States. The members of this orchestra, thanks to the reputation they have acquired during their national and international tours, have become true ambassadors, whose success does us honour everywhere.

"5 Stars: …spacious, polished, springy, sensitive to harmonic nuance, simply produced." BBC Music Magazine, London, UK

"La Pietà is one of the finest string ensembles I have ever heard… Each time one of its players had an important solo, it was gorgeous… Concertmaster Dubeau played with stirring artistry. She is a master of her instrument with glorious tone, easy technical mastery and a fabulous command of harmonics…" Peninsula Reviews, San Francisco, US

Angele Dubeau & La Pieta - Silence, on joue! (A Time for Us)

Analekta presents Angele Dubeau & La Pieta's new album, A Time for Us, featuring some of the most beautiful film scores, all favourites of the violinist.

"I have chosen musical moments that speak to me, film music that is particularly appealing, and great musical pieces that inspire images," explains Angele Dubeau. "My relationship to this music is not the kind chosen by composers, who have created emotions that are attached to images, to a reality conceived for film. Rather, I was inspired by pure music, ignoring conveyed images, and taking it elsewhere in order to recreate my own musical universe. What I feel when I play these works comes from the music, and my approach has been comparable in all respects to the one I favour when working on my repertoire. That is why pieces that are first of all functional go beyond their role by defying time and, breaking out of their framework, become masterpieces."
