At the ADISQ First Gala held yesterday in Montreal, Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà‘s album Max Richter: Portrait won the award for Album of the Year in the category Classical / Large Ensemble. This is the 17th Classical Album of the Year award given to Angèle Dubeau since the creation of the ADISQ Gala in 1979. Congratulations!
Recorded in concert during the One Last Time tour, we hear a violinist at the top of her form and a concert where magic and perfection are in symbiosis.
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.
We are proud to announce that Angèle Dubeau has been nominated in two categories for the 2018 ADISQ Gala.
The album Portrait: Max Richter is nominated in the category Album of the Year – Classical / Orchestra and Large Ensemble.
The concert Pour une dernière fois is nominated in the category Show of the Year – Performer.
For these two projects, Mrs Dubeau performed with her ensemble La Pietà.
The ADISQ (Association québécoise de l’industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo) will announce the winners during the Premier Gala de l’ADISQ at the MTELUS in Montreal, on October 24 2018, and at the Gala de l’ADISQ, on Octobre 28 2018, at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier of Place des Arts in Montreal.
Our congratulations to Angèle Dubeau!
