Analekta presents

Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà present ELLE

How to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ensemble La Pietà by Angèle Dubeau? The answer came naturally to her through the music. An album completely thought out, conceived, played and composed by women. ELLE, in the singular, because each woman is unique.

Added to the music of Olafur Arnalds, Armand Amar, Ludovico Einaudi, Alex Baranowski, Philip Glass, and Max Richter will be works from her latest opus, an incursion into the musical world of women, including Rachel Portman, Elena Kats-Chernin and Rebecca Dale.

Angèle Dubeau & La PietàAngèle Dubeau founded La Pietà in 1997, an all-female string ensemble featuring some of Canada’s best musicians. What she could not have known at the time was that this experiment, originally conceived for periodic recordings, would gradually become a full-time occupation.

From early on, the ensemble gained a solid reputation, playing Canada’s most prestigious venues and on television. “Precise attacks, excellent ensemble playing and energy… One would think oneself magically transported to the blessed era of the Solisti di Zagreb… passion, presence… The musicians’ smiles are contagious” noted Le Devoir.

Known for their exceptional virtuosity and impeccable precision, their rich interpretations, and above all the contagious happiness that enlivens their stage presence, Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà have crisscrossed the world for 20 years. The Los Angeles Times noted that “Dubeau is an exciting, dynamic fiddler… The performances were consistently robust and inquiring, taking nothing for granted… Dubeau’s well-drilled band played with agility, power, a nicely weighted sound and a fierce joy in the doing”.
