Bookmark and Share
Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà received yesterday a Félix award in the category "Album of the Year - Classical / Orchestra and Large Ensemble" for the album LUDOVICO EINAUDI: PORTRAIT. The Félix awards are Québec's equivalent of the Juno awards in Canada and the Grammy awards in the United States. This prize is Angèle Dubeau's 15th Félix award in her career and shows that, in her quest for excellence, she has always been able to renew herself and generate public interest for her music.

Inspired by the works of the great and prolific Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, the internationally renowned violinist offers, for her 39th album, a unique interpretation of his music, "changing its texture, rethinking its character, while bringing a new sonic dimension." To date, the works from the album LUDOVICO EINAUDI: PORTRAIT have been streamed more than 5 million times throughout the world and the works from Angèle Dubeau's discography have been streamed more than 15 million times. These are impressive results for a classical artist and they testify to her international success and stature.

Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà will perform works from the albums BLANC and LUDOVICO EINAUDI: PORTRAIT at the Palais Montcalm in Quebec City this Thursday, October 29 and at the Maison Symphonique in Montreal on November 13, 2015.
