An atmospheric Poem in Five Pictures for Solo Piano
Composed and performed by RONAN MAGILL

Long before the epic motion picture was conceived, Ronan Magill compiled this music-poem in memory of the loss of the Titanic her passengers and crew.
Inspired by watching the older film version of the tragedy, “A Night to Remember”, the piece was built up gradually into five “pictures” representing the voyage.
The work incorporates two songs by composer Archibald Joyce, which were on the Titanic’s music lists, and one of which (Songe d’Automne) is believed to be the piece played by the ship’s band on the sloping deck, just before the final plunge into oblivion.
