Notes and Editorial Reviews

“I devote my new Portrait album to Max Richter and his impressive body of powerful and original works. I have selected sixteen works with his unique signature, which I revisit here with my violin and my orchestra, La Pietà.” - Angele Dubeau O.C., C.Q., DFA.

Max Richter is one of the most influential composers of his generation. Inspired by Bach, punk rock and ambient electronic music, he has composed works for more than 50 films, including Waltz for Bashir, Shutter Island by Martin Scorcese and Arrival by Denis Villeneuve, as well as HBO's The Leftovers television series.

REVIEW:

The playing and recording standards are absolutely
Read more top-notch. It’s essentially easy, pleasant – and, yes, introspective – listening that will be warmly welcomed by Dubeau’s many regular admirers.

 Horrible CD...and Expensive! January 18, 2018 By Lawrence E. (glenview, IL) See All My Reviews "What a waste of money. Ok, the performance is good. But the music itself is compilation of Max Richter's film music. I was expecting more along the lines of his 4 Seasons CD, but all I got was empty film music, for $18!!!! Don't waste your time!"

 Lovely music. Relaxing December 16, 2017 By Jana P. (Sonoma, CA) See All My Reviews "This is beautifully done but after a while the music starts sounding a lot a like. We're glad we bought it though." Report Abuse
 Excellent--as always! November 3, 2017 By Jerry G. (Edgewater, CO) See All My Reviews "I have almost all of Dubeau and La Pieta's recordings. Can't say that I was very familiar with Richter, but this is a great listen, as are all of hers." Report Abuse
