The TITANIC Ensemble of Belgium will absolutely charm you with exquisite little works of art dating back to a very innovative period in ‘recent’ musical history and for once these unique pearls are not composed by ‘the earth’s grandees’. Seven thoroughbred musicians (violin, flute, clarinet, cello, double bass, piano and percussion) will take the audience back in time and accompany it on a world cruise, briefly touching the five continents in 80 minutes of long lingering emotion. Toes will begin to tingle at the first cakewalk dating back to the beginning of last century. Next the aroma of freshly made Chinese tea is in the air. Suddenly the skittles of a juggler are whizzing through the air to the very delight of the younger children in the audience. When 70 fingers interpret a delicate music box tune, grandma is overcome by memories of her childhood. Mother imagines herself lying on a sandy white beach in the tropics while a rumba accompanies the rippling tide. Later on the tearing pace of the Scandinavian Express catches everyone, and finally father relives his early years whilst listening to a catchy tune from post-war swing. The nicest thing of all is that the audience themselves get completely caught up in the mood, through a number of beguiling titles accompanied by comments coloured with a whiff of subtle humour. The musicians’ enthusiasm is without doubt, the driving force behind an evening full of dynamics. The audience simply never tires, the repertoire of the TITANIC Ensemble holds over 3000 titles.
