The Titanic Saga by Piet Swerts (1960-). For Concert Band. De Haske Concert Band. Grade 5. De Haske Publications #991533. Published by De Haske Publications (HL.44003596).
Following the spectacular movie Titanic, the story of the world famous ship stood in the spotlights once again. Piet Swerts was inspired by this catastrophic saga to compose this beautifully narrative piece, reflecting the masses of people in Southampton, playing children and the undulating sea. The piece gradually picks up impetuously culminating with the looming iceberg and the dramatic sinking of the Titanic.
