Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stunning contemporary music from the French-Canadian violinist – a ClassicFM Album of the Week

After a fight against cancer, the French-Canadian violinist Angèle Dubeau has produced an album of beautiful contemporary pieces that are linked by their common evocation of light and peace - all works that she says have personally helped her through her illness.

The album consists of 14 pieces from 12 different composers including international movie maestros - Ennio Morricone, Joe Hisaishi and Ryuichi Sakamato - and such varied genres as jazz and folk, as exemplified by the music of Dave Brubeck and Cat Stevens.

Angèle Dubeau is a sensational violinist and the selection here is
Read more serene and heartfelt. She is ably accompanied by her all-female string ensemble La Pietà, who turn "Morning Has Broken" into a rolling, pastoral rhapsody.

"Blanc like purity, serenity. Blanc for light music which, by their size and their evocative power, can bring inner peace. Of emotions on skin that reflect this strange loneliness qu'amène disease. After months of struggle against cancer, music has help me stay on track, music brought me comfort, tranquility and often Escape necessary. These songs, which are those of Brubeck, Dompierre, Golijov, Hisaishi, Morricone, Mozetich, Munsey, O'Connor, Phillips, Sakamoto, Schyman and Stevens. Musical moments without artifice, true and hopeful. This album tells a story, my story, that of a woman who, like so many others had to fight against the disease, and serenely grown spring." – Angele Dubeau Read less

 Expressive June 3, 2014 By Linda M. (Germantown, MD) See All My Reviews "As a breat cancer patient, I can totally identify with the music in this CD. Each song expresses the shock, anxiety,endurance and hope that comes with the diagnosis, surgery, and treatment. I recommend this for anyone undergoing radical cancer surgery and treatment. The music (with her playing the violin, of course) is beautiful. It's not all CLASSICAL by any means, but you identify with the music in a way that is very profound." Report Abuse
