Notes & Reviews:

An artist of rare versatility considered one of the most prominent violin virtuosos in Canada, for more than 30 years Angèle Dubeau has had 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 two gold records for sales exceeding 50,000 albums sold in one year and has already succeeded in selling over 400,000 discs.

Transformed by this same desire to innovate, she founded La Pietà in 1997, an all-female string ensemble that varies in size, featuring some Canada's best musicians. What she could not have known at the time was that this experiment, originally conceived for her period recordings, would gradually occupy all of her time. From early on, the ensemble gained a solid reputation, playing Canada's most prestigious venues and on television.

Angèle Dubeau and La Pietà have crisscrossed the Americas and Asia for the last ten 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."

Angèle Dubeau plays on the "Des Rosiers" Stradivarius violin (1733).

Angèle Dubeau and La Pietà take us around the world with this sparkling selection of beautiful Christmas melodies caressed by the group's shimmering, silken strings in a joyous and festive celebration, sure to become a new holiday classic
