Bookmark and Share

One week after the launch of her latest album Ludovico Einaudi: Portrait, violinist Angèle Dubeau finds herself at the top of Soundscan's classical music sales charts in Canada and in sixth place on the general album sales chart in the province of Québec. "Portrait is a string of recordings presenting contemporary composers with a unique musical signature. Ludovico Einaudi is one of them. A music that captivates the listener, a sonic landscape to discover" says Angèle Dubeau.

Driven by the works of this grand and prolific Italian composer, the internationally renowned violinist shares once again her passion with the excellent musicians of her string orchestra, La Pietà. For her 39th album in career, Angèle Dubeau offers a unique revisit of Ludovico Einaudi's music, "changing its texture, rethinking its character, while bringing a new sonic dimension."

According to Soundscan, Angèle Dubeau is the classical violinist who sold the most albums in North America in 2014 and is the second best selling classical soloist behind Yo-Yo Ma. Additionally, Angèle Dubeau's albums rated in the Soundscan end of year Top 100 classical music chart in Canada represent almost 10% of all the sales on that chart.
