Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà – Philip Glass, Ludovico Einaudi

A unique concert featuring selected pieces from Philip Glass and Ludovico Einaudi by Angèle Dubeau. Unforgettable Portraits of exceptional composers.

Angèle Dubeau has pursued a career as a classical musician for over 45 years and has played in as many countries, always with the same passion, zest, and generosity. Beyond her virtuosity as a musician, this exceptional woman has other qualities that have earned her a special place in the hearts of her audiences. While her virtuosity and musicality have won over critics, audiences adore Angèle Dubeau for her captivating music, her uncommon gift as a communicator, her generosity, and her outstanding ability to connect with listeners. She has garnered many awards over the years, and she is one of the few classical violinists in the world to earn gold records. To date, she has released 48 albums, sold over 650,000 copies and her recordings have been streamed 195 million times.

Angèle Dubeau has had an exceptional career. At the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal, she received a First Prize (master’s degree) in violin at age 15, studying with Raymond Dessaints, and a First Prize in chamber music at age 16. She then moved to New York City to study with Dorothy DeLay at the prestigious Juilliard School of Music and, from 1981 to 1984, she studied in Romania with the eminent pedagogue Stefan Gheorghiu. She has won several national and international competitions.

Angèle Dubeau is as deeply convinced as ever of the need to guide the general public to a better understanding of music. She devotes herself to making it accessible by reaching across borders, generations, and backgrounds. “I like to think that music is a universal treasure that almost everyone can share,” she explains. In addition to the numerous concerts she gives, this truly passionate musician communicates her love of music and culture through televised music programs for young audiences, popular concerts, and the Fête de la Musique de Tremblant, a festival she founded over 25 years ago that features Canadian artists and their works and attracts over 40,000 music lovers annually. “Contact with art opens up our senses and colors our lives,” she affirms.

Driven by the desire to innovate, Angèle Dubeau founded La Pietà in 1997, an all-woman string ensemble featuring some of Canada’s best musicians. What she could not have known at the time was that this experiment, originally conceived of 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. 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 over 25 years.
