I am, however, an admirer of the recordings of La Pieta, the Canadian all-female string orchestra, and their leader, violinist Angele Dubeau. In particular, I appreciate their impeccable musicianship and the good taste of the arrangements that are composed for the ensemble. In recent recordings, they've championed the music of notable contemporary composers Philip Glass, John Adams, and Arvo Part, all favorites of mine. &nbsp;<br> Mon, 14 Jan 2013 23:08:12 +0000 Mark Pinto 5015 at http://wrti.org Mark Pinto Recommends: Game Music A Classical Musician's Game Theory http://wrti.org/post/classical-musicians-game-theory Though it may not be on any singles charts, the theme from <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DehK_Y0TUbE" target="_blank">Angry Birds</a> is likely one of the most widely heard pieces of music ever. For Canadian violinist Angèle Dubeau, that's just one reason to take it seriously — even though it originated in a video game.<p>On her latest album, <em>Game Music</em> — or, in her home of Quebec, <em>Musique de jeux vidéo</em> — Dubeau interprets a variety of video game themes with her string quartet, La Pieta.
