Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà: postminimalism, néoclacissism… “Pulsation”

· by Alain Brunet

With Pulsation, her most recent opus released last fall, violinist Angèle Dubeau and her string ensemble La Pietà (flanked by pianist Amélie Fortin and harpist Valérie Milot) have chosen the path of post-minimalism and neo-classicism, without neglecting virtuoso interpretation. The programme includes works by Ólafur Arnalds, Jean-Michel Blais, Ludovico Einaudi, Alex Baranowski, Craig Armstrong, Peter Gregson, Yann Tiersen, Abel Korzeniowski, Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Dalal, and Micheal Nyman. These heavy tendencies lighten the instrumental offerings by restoring their consonant harmonies and melodies, also by simplifying their compositional structures. And it will fill the Salle Bourgie twice, as it did last autumn.
