We try to use the unique way to polish, illustrate and demonstrate those well-known or unfamiliar music pieces, even those delicate phrases and improvised fractions creeping under our skin.
From classical to contemporary and Impressionism, from swing to rock and latin, from fusion to bossanova, we indulge ourselves in discovering those lovely music lists.
From gig to the screen to the ACG, from the World-music to the new age and electronic music, we use every inch of our nerve endings to sense, to present, to perform, to honor those imaginary, memorial, passionate, sentimental, miserable, touching, active, emotional sound of music !
2015 ushers in a new season when BelleVille Ensemble will present you our new chapters and creations. They are epic, pathetique, psychedelic, witty, sentimental and memorial ones.
We are pilgrims on the journey of worshiping these screen miracles, and attempt to feel the soul behind those motifs and scenes.
The resonance of keys, strings, bridges, bows, conveys our obsession, dreams, our joy, sorrow and our love…

Welcome to BelleVille
He has an obsession with perfectness of music, which is reason why he repeatedly demands the band to practice a single measure. In stark contrast to his rigid appearance, his inner emotion is rich and delicate, so he cannot help, from time to time, being touched by what he is writing at midnight.
As the first violin of Belle Ville, Li Chaoqun is capable of satisfying all the seemingly freakish technique requirements of the demanding conductor. His vibrato is extremely soothing and can alleviate the anxiety of the members caused by the occasionally tense rehearsal. You may also be amazed by what he will play his accordion: sorrowful Russian melody, bright French tune, or exuberant Gipsy dance.
As can be seen, Gao Yang’s timbre is as rich and mellow as a ripe plum; when he plays high-frequency tremolo, you might feel the wings of a hummingbird.
If Li Dongheng, the only idol type of the band, does not sit as tight and properly as the other violinists, that is because the experience of playing rock guitar has freed his soul and body; he may also receive the most applaud on the stage because he has won countless admirers and followers after teaching English for years with his authentic British accent.
All Zhang Yue wants is to be a quiet violinist, sitting elegantly, playing every note without attracting any attention, but the sculpture-like expression cannot conceal her surging emotion：she might be too sentimental to hold her bow. Meanwhile, she is responsible for a crucial and irreplaceable task: keeping the conductor calm and steady.
A violist who also plays the violin, invariably carries three cases: one for the violin, one for the viola, one for wrenches and screwdrivers, but he is not a part-time repairman：he is a senior piano tuner.
A cellist who can no longer write a single word for himself after racking his brains for one week, writing all members’ introductions.
She is a flutist who may refresh what you think about the flute and a flutist: you will hear Debussy-like modern phrases, jazz, and rock ;she may also put down her flute at any moment and pick up a shaker, or castanets.
At the first glance, Xiaoding is a keyboardist who cannot move her keyboard alone，but she contributes to half of the tones of the whole performance: horn, saxophone, oboe, double bass, marimba, you name it. If you cannot locate a peculiar sound heard during the show, please turn to Xiaoding.
A guitarist who highlights the versatility of the band: once a headbanger , he now brutally interprets the killings and desires of the James Bond movies with a guitar, whispers the melancholy of the Sicilian Mafia on his mandolin, and releases the wildness of the Gipsy music on a djembe. Xiaobai, like the tenor who did not read music(you know who I am talking about), is talented enough to find his way through the classical to the contemporary.
Hidden in a dark corner on the stage, she seems an outsider, divorced from the band, with a calm smile on her face regardless of what music is being played. However, the success of the show hinges on the moves of her fingertips. She does not have any supernatural power; she is simply in charge of the audio-video stream of the live performance. No sooner does the last phrase end, than she vanishes into the crowd, leaving all her merits behind, undocumented, unknown.
As an emcee, Chen Ran raises the average level of education and cultivation of British and American literature of the whole band. Her dream of music, which was stifled at an early age, carries on in Belle ville.
