Bookmark and Share

Known for their exceptional virtuosity and impeccable precision, Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà have crisscrossed the world for nearly two decades. Founded in 1997, the all-female string orchestra features some of Canada's best musicians. Ms. Dubeau's virtuosity, musicality and uncommon gifts as a music communicator has produced a dazzling career in the great concert halls of the world, and the violinist has sold over 500,000 albums worldwide.

For her 39th album, Angèle Dubeau offers a unique revisit to Ludovico Einaudi's music with the La Pieta release - Ludovico Einaudi: Portrait. Working for the unique musical signature of Einaudi, "the music captivates the listener," say Dubeau. It's a sonic landscape to discover with changing texture and character. The Einaudi: Portrait has been Top 20 charting on Soundscan's Current Classical Traditional chart for much of the past 23 weeks and tracks from the album have already been streamed over 1 million times in the US. Einaudi: Portrait has been on the Canada Classical chart for 33 weeks, 8 times at #1 and the album has now sold more than 11,000 copies.

Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà played The Dakota in Minneapolis last week and took the time while in town to stop by Minnesota Public Radio for a perf/chat and concert.
