Концерт в Белфасте, посвященный столетию гибели "Титаника". Bryan Ferry, Joss Stone,Colin Morgan, Jamie Cullum, Nicola Benedetti, Alfie Boe, Katie Melua, Charlie Siem, Maverick Sabre, the Ulster Orchestra etc.
Watching this again, (saw in live in 2012) with tears in my eyes..was one of the most exquisitel beautiful events I've ever seen..such professionalism from everyone involved..from presenters right through to the performers...not with a cold detachment , but with warmth, humility and a deep respect for the enormormity of the event and the fifteen hundred souls who perished that fateful night.
RIP Titanic and all who paid the ultimate price.
Such a beautiful homage to those who died on Titanic, those who built it, and all the people in Belfast. Thanks for sharing this.
And indeed Harland and Wolff were one of the greatest ship builders of the world. As for the White Star Line, it was in operation for 89 years before being made to merge with the Cunard Line. As for saying that people were waiting for The Titanic, the most luxurious ship of the day, it wasn't, it's older Sister The Olympic was almost it's exact replica, and pre dated it and outlived it, until it was scrapped and The Olympic was the most profitable ship for the company, despite it's problems, it's collisions and it's death and accident toll! Unfortunately due to the first World War, The Britannic was commissioned into service by the government and hit a mine and sank of the Greek Island Kea in 1916. The last of the Olympic Class luxurious Liners!
Josh Stone's performance was too over the top and completely inappropriate for the whole concert and for the era supposedly being represented. What was all that wailing about? So wrong!
Been waiting for this to be uploaded. Thanks.
It really touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes as I thought of so so many who lost their lives that night. And also those who had to leave their loved ones behind to die on the sinking ship. I'm so glad regulations have changed!!! But the concert really told the story! So well done! Loved it all!!!!
I'm seeing this for the first time in July 2017, months after the 105th anniversary and am impressed by the beauty of this commemoration. What a most proper tribute to the occasion. I was particularly struck by the details of the last moments of band member Wallace Hartley.
who the hell has disliked this? They must have no heart!
Magnificent song by Alfie Boe.
Beautiful song by Katie Melua.
Thanks for uploading this. A wonderful and deeply moving memorial to that disaster over a hundred years ago. A disaster that to this day still causes pain when you think about it. I once got to read some of the telegrams sent by survivors after the disaster and when you read them you really do get a sense of the pain of that night.
Mica Paris @ 1:26:10 :D
A wonderful concert and such a moving performance of Bring Him Home by Alfie Boe that so beautifully reflected the telling of the stories of all those who were lost.
Thank you for uploading this Concert. I attended the event and was so impressed by the professionalism of all who took part including the technical staff. All performers were excellent but Mica Paris singing 'Run' Snow Patrol's hit at the end was simply wonderful. What a finale.
Fantastic performance to end with
