Angele Dubeau's Blanc is Classic fm's 'Album of the Week'

Bookmark and Share

After a fight against cancer, the French-Canadian violinist Angele Dubeau has produced an album of beautiful contemporary pieces that are linked by their common evocation of light and peace - all works that she says have personally helped her through her illness. The album consists of 14 pieces from 12 different composers including international movie maestros - Ennio Morricone, Joe Hisaishi and Ryuichi Sakamato - and such varied genres as jazz and folk, as exemplified by the music of Dave Brubeck and Cat Stevens.

Angèle Dubeau is a sensational violinist and the selection here is serene and heartfelt. She is ably accompanied by her all-female string ensemble La Pieta  who turn Morning Has Broken into a rolling, pastoral rhapsody.
