Bookmark and Share

St. Augustine's EMMA Concert Association will host violinist Angèle Dubeau and La Pieta this Saturday January 7 in Flagler College's Lewis Auditorium.

An artist of rare versatility, considered one of the most prominent violin virtuosos in Canada, Dubeau has led a dazzling career in the great concert halls of the world for the past 35 years. When she founded La Pietà in 1997, her modest goal was to produce an outstanding CD of Antonio Vivaldi's works with an ensemble of string instruments, a piano and 13 women performers. Very quickly, the group gained a reputation for exceptional virtuosity, impeccable precision, rich musical interpretations and the contagious happiness that marked their presence on stage. Dubeau and La Pieta now travel the globe, bringing Maestro Vivaldi's Baroque treasures to rapt audiences. The ensemble's name is a reference to the Pieta hospice (Ospedale) of Venice, Italy, one of four such hospices founded in the 14th century and still operating during Vivaldi's lifetime.  READ THE FULL St. Augustine Record ARTICLE
