Bookmark and Share

After a fight against cancer, the French-Canadian violinist Angele Dubeau has produced an album of beautiful contemporary pieces called Blanc.  Linked by their common evocation of light and peace - all these works Ms. Dubeau 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. Blanc is the CLASSIC fM CD of the Week.

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.
