ANGÈLE DUBEAU PRESENTS THE ALBUM PULSATIONS

With a career spanning over four decades and an impressive discography of more than forty albums, Angèle Dubeau continues to leave her mark in today’s music world. Her virtuosity brings her on the most prestigious stages and she continues to be awarded international prizes for her recordings and to receive honors for her career.

Pulsations, the violinist’s new album, brings together works that evoke strong images and possess a profound emotional intensity. In addition to the excellence of her playing, she has a flair for finding and recording the works of remarkable composers, thus placing her at the center of the post-minimalist movement, one of the most relevant musical genres of our time. The public’s increasing interest for some of these composers whose works are featured on Pulsations tells us that we are witnessing the emergence of a golden age for this contemporary music.

A pulsation marks time, it infuses its rhythm in it and also evokes the heart. Just like those composers whose music calls out to me and who, with their unique signatures, mark time, our time; Olafur Arnalds, Jean-Michel Blais, Ludovico Einaudi, Alex Baranowski, Craig Armstrong, Peter Gregson, Yann Tiersen, Abel Korzeniowski, Johan Johannsson, Max Richter and Dalal.” — Angèle Dubeau, O.C., C.Q., O.M.

Once again, Angèle Dubeau is accompanied by the excellent musicians of her all-female string ensemble La Pietà, with whom she has been playing for over 20 years.

Her previous album, Ovation, released last year, was chosen as Album of the Week by important radio stations like Classic FM in London, KDFC in San Francisco and KUSC in Los Angeles. Angèle Dubeau is also one of the rare classical musicians in the world to have received Gold Records. In her career, she has sold more than 600,000 albums and her recordings have been streamed 80 million times, in a total of more than 100 countries.

In December 2017, with two sold-out concerts at the Maison symphonique de Montréal, the One Last Time tour by Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà came to an end. This tour of thirty-three concerts was, for the violinist, an opportunity to thank her Quebec fans for the support they had given her throughout her career.

It was on that tour, during the concerts at Palais Montcalm in Quebec City, that Ovation was recorded. This new album features musical works composed by the likes of Einaudi, Richter, Glass, Enescu and Saint-Saëns and which have been landmarks of the first 20 years of La Pietà’s career. The album also showcases a violinist at the top of her form and a concert where magic and perfection are in symbiosis.

Ovation is not only the culminating moment of that tour, its release crowns a year in which Angèle Dubeau received several honors.

In February, she received the RIDEAU Homage Award from the Réseau indépendant des diffuseurs d’évènements artistiques unis to highlight her invaluable contribution for the promotion of classical music in Quebec.

In May, she received the prestigious Ordre of Montreal medal which recognizes and honors the men and women who have made a remarkable contribution to the development and influence of the city. This is the highest honor given by the city of Montreal.

Also in May, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec named her Compagne des arts et des lettres du Québec to highlight her remarkable contribution to the development and promotion of Quebec’s arts and literature.

In September, she received a nomination for a Félix award at the ADISQ gala in the category Album of the Year – Classical for her album Max Richter: Portrait and another nomination for her concert One last time in the category Show of the year – Interpreter.

Ovation eloquently demonstrates the audacious artistic journey of Angèle Dubeau, a musician who has always distinguished herself by the quality of her playing and her musical accomplishments.
