Notes and Editorial Reviews
"A pulsation marks time, it infuses its rhythm in it and also evokes the heart. Just like those composers whose music calls out to me and who, with their unique signatures, mark time, our time; Olafur Arnalds, Jean-Michel Blais, Ludovico Einaudi, Alex Baranowski, Craig Armstrong, Peter Gregson, Yann Tiersen, Abel Korzeniowski, Johan Johannsson, Max Richter, Dalal..." (Angèle Dubeau) One of the most prominent violin virtuosos of her generation, Angele Dubeau has been leading an exceptional career for over 40 years in the great concert halls of the world. While her virtuosity and musicality have seduced critics, the public has adopted Angele Dubeau for her captivating music, her uncommon gift as a communicator, her generosity and her outstanding ability to connect with her audience. She has garnered many awards over the years, and she is one of the rare classical violinists in the world to have been awarded gold records. She has sold over 600,000 albums in her career and the works from the violinist’s discography have been streamed over 75 million times across more than 100 countries.
The rhythmic cycles and the melodic-harmonic motifs of many of these compositions are now part of the musical imagination, the characteristics of which are found in several film scores ... and in this album perfectly representative of the trend, interpreted with inspiration, accuracy and virtuosity by Angèle Dubeau and her ensemble.

Pulsations brings together works that evoke strong images and possess a profound emotional intensity. She has a flair for finding and recording the works of remarkable composers, thus placing her at the center of the post-minimalist movement, one of the most relevant musical genres of our time.
