Channeling the Music of Hope through Blanc


In January of 2013 Canadian violinist Angele Dubeau was diagnosed with breast cancer and was forced to cancel concerts for the first time in her life. When she heard from so many fans after the announcement, she knew she wanted to channel hope through music for her 38th recording.

"Blanc, like purity and serenity. Blanc for luminous music that can bring interior peace through its strength and powerful evocation. Fully charged emotions that reflect the strange solitude found in illness," Dubeau writes in the liner notes of Blanc.

Hear my interview with Dubeau all about the new release and how she found music without artifice on Thursday's show.
