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

Angèle Dubeau is releasing her 45th album today: Immersion. Recorded with the twelve brilliant musicians of La Pietà, Immersion echoes Pulsations, her previous album which won the Félix prize for Best Classical Album of the Year in 2020. While Pulsations brought together intense works, evocative of strong images, Immersion, the first of three albums to be released this year by the violinist, offers a deep introspective dive imbued with sensitivity.

A lifelong music lover, tireless in her research - she has spent hundreds of hours listening to music since March 2020! -, Angèle Dubeau found for her new album fourteen works "on which I lingered intuitively because I really needed them", she confides. Works that catered to her emotions and which have provided her with a salutary and necessary well-being in these turbulent and pandemic times. Now she offers her own interpre- tations to her vast public.
