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

"BLANC like purity and serenity. BLANC for luminous music that can bring interior peace through its strength and powerful evocation. Fully charged emotions that reflect the strange solitude found in illness. After months of battle against cancer, music has been my focal point, it has brought me comfort, tranquillity and sometimes, an essential escape. This music is of Brubeck, Dompierre, Golijov, Hisaishi, Morricone, Mozetich, Munsey, O'Connor, Phillips, Sakamoto, Schyman and Stevens. A music without artifice, real and filled with hope. This album tells my story, the story of a woman like many others who had to fight against illness and, serenely, came out of it stronger." The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation Thanks You Thank you.
