ABOUT THE PROGRAM
When I began my research, video games quickly emerged as a logical avenue of exploration.

FROM HALO 3 AND SPLINTER CELL TO FINAL FANTASY AND ANGRY BIRDS ANGELE DUBEAU PRESENTS MUSIC FROM THE MOST POPULAR VIDEO GAMES WITH LA PIETA!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
When I began my research, video games quickly emerged as a logical avenue of exploration. I have always strived to interest young people in classical music because I feel it has the power to touch everyone. Seeing the passion of young people for video games, I wanted to understand the secrets of their success and to evaluate their musical value. I immersed myself in the worlds that created these excerpts, and I conveyed my new conception to the musicians of La Pietà, going into great detail to bring forth all of their beauty and power. Above all, I wanted to avoid distorting them, and my intention has been to preserve the form that initially won over video game aficionados while at the same time breathing new life into them. So it is with great pleasure that I invite you to dive into the fantastical world of video games with me. - Angèle Dubeau

ABOUT ANGÈLE DUBEAU AND LA PIETÀ
An artist of rare versatility considered one of the most prominent violin virtuosos in Canada, for 35 years Angèle Dubeau has led a dazzling career in the great concert halls of the world. While her virtuosity and musicality have seduced critics, the public has adopted Dubeau for her uncommon gifts as a communicator and her outstanding ability to connect with it. In fact, she is the only Canadian classical musician to have been awarded gold records and has already sold over 500,000 albums. Angèle Dubeau founded La Pietà in 1997, an all-woman string orchestra featuring some of Canada’s best musicians. What she could not have known at the time was that this experiment, originally conceived for period recordings, would gradually occupy most of her time. 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, Angèle Dubeau and La Pietà have crisscrossed the world for 15 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."
