Product Description

La Pietà, ensemble à cordes dirigé par la violoniste québécoise Angèle Dubeau, nous a habitués à des disques incluant des pièces classiques et des mélodies populaires, regroupées sous une même thématique. Avec Violons d’enfer, c’est le diable qui mène le bal : "De tous les instruments, le violon est sans doute celui qui a le plus souvent été associé au diable", nous préviennent les notes d’accompagnement. Les œuvres choisies évoquent le malin soit par leur titre, soit par l’expressivité débridée qui les caractérisent souvent : la "Danse macabre" de Saint-Saëns, le "Trille du diable" de Tartini, l’incontournable "Reel du diable", le "Caprice no 24" de Paganini (arrangé pour l’ensemble par sa pianiste, Louise-Andrée Baril), ou encore "Sympathy for a Devil Painted in Black" des Rolling Stones, mettent au défi la virtuosité de l’ensemble.

L’unité est bonne, et la grande qualité technique au rendez-vous. En revanche, les interprétations ne sont pas toujours aussi relevées et certainement pas aussi "endiablées" qu’on le souhaiterait. On y reconnaît néanmoins le son de La Pietà et sa façon d’uniformiser un matériel musical provenant de sources très différentes. Un disque qui se laisse écouter sans concentration. --Dominique Olivier

Format: Audio CD
Passionate, stirring renditions of dark beauties that make your heart pound in it's macabre dance. Spirited, yet filled with complexities to entice your inner nymph. A must have.

HASH(0x9efd6c6c) out of 5 stars Love it!! Jan. 6 2009
By guenthecat - Published on
I Love love love this CD! Someone gave the CD to me years ago and it is played in my office time and time again as the infectious movement of the music really gets me going in a productive mode. This is also the CD that really spurred me to want to learn to play the violin. I recommend the CD to anyone who enjoys the kind of music that takes over your mind and wills you to interact with it.

I bought this specifically because I love the 'Devil's Beauties' -- it is a delightful piece of music. The other pieces on the CD provide pleasant listening.

HASH(0x9eeb92c4) out of 5 stars Pleasent junk Nov. 26 2009

I downloaded this as MP3 by accident (you know, can't turn off "one click" and the
mouse slipped while scrolling).

It is arrangements of (mostly) common things for violin and orchestra (
including, of course, the 24th caprice, which is really for violin solo). These
are nice arrangements that are easy on the ear. In other words, "pops"
arrangements. Not actually bad (except the 24th caprice, which should sound impossibly hard.)
