Undoubtedly, the range and diversity of Angèle Dubeau's artistic journey never ceases to amaze! After a 36th album devoted to film music, A Time for Us, Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà now presents Game Music. This new recording features unrivalled performances of strong and striking works from some of the most popular video games in the world. Never before was the realm of video games imbued with such virtuosity and originality.
I have never placed limits on my choice of repertoire, and for this project, I reached toward a unique world that was creative and vibrant in its originality," explains Angèle Dubeau, the violinist and artistic director of La Pietà. "In my quest to discover the gems of video game music, I listened to many works written and revisited by composers of great talent. Above all, I wanted to avoid distorting them, and my intention has been to preserve the form that initially won over video game aficionados while at the same time breathing new life into them."
