This is one of the best Philip Glass albums in ages. Led by French Canadian violinist Angele Dubeau, the all-female string-ensemble La Pieta has woven together some of the composer's most moodily romantic and irresistible pieces, playing them with a lush, almost hypnotizing beauty. -- The Star Ledger, November 3, 2008
Dubeau plays everything with alluring sweetness and sophistication and her colleagues match her tender, inflected playing note for note. -- Gramophone, January 2008
This resolutely modern album is a musical portrait of Philip Glass. Angèle Dubeau has always maintained a passionate interest in all musical forms; this curiosity led her to explore the works of Glass and to paint a dramatic portrait of the composer with these personal choices of some of his most significant works for strings. For a number of years, Angèle Dubeau has collaborated with Philip Glass in New York while working on his first violin concerto. In light of this relationship, Glass authorized, for the first time, an overview of his work with musicians other than the ones he works with regularly. With this repertoire, Angèle Dubeau proves her artistic maturity while exploring new territories, bringing this discovery - or rediscovery - of this great composer of our time to her public.
