Sounds of the Dolomites (I Suoni delle Dolomiti) is a unique high altitude music festival which brings musicians from across the world to the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea is simple and at the same time fascinating: to combine the passion for music and the mountains, art and the environment, in a concert programme celebrating freedom and nature. Participants set off from the valley floor and head for clearings and hollows near the mountain refuges, natural theatres in which the music is performed in complete harmony with the surroundings. The festival features internationally renowned artists who, instruments on their shoulders, display their shared regard for the environment by joining the public in walking to the concert venues, on what is both an art and a nature trail. It’s the outcome of the cooperation between Trentino Marketing and the Val di Fassa Tourist Board.
Sounds of the Dolomites also presents "Dawn in the Dolomites", almost a festival within a festival, an event of words and music performed in the dreamlike atmosphere of the birth of a new day.
Sounds of the Dolomites: special project "Dawn in the Dolomites". A century-long journey: music against war, humanity against brutality. Col Margherita (San Pellegrino Pass - Moena), at 6.00 a.m.
Programme: "meanwhile let’s play" is a choral and orchestral narrative, a journey into memory and an close look at our present. The focus is on music, war, peace, silence, great and small forms of resistance against brutality. And defeat and rebirth. It takes us on a journey across the 20th century and up to the present day, through the words that soldier Alessandro Silvestri confided to his diaries. Amid the brutality of the war, music was a lifeline for him and here it is an opportunity to follow personal events, to move between words and sounds and to return, or rather to go, to where the word 'war' is not simply a memory but still a dramatic reality, to where music still mingles with the deafening noise of gunshots and explosions. Making all this possible are an incredible group of famous musicians and actors and extraordinary music, including Giovanni Sollima’s "Diaspora", composed specially for this project. After an idea of Mario Brunello and Alessandro Baricco. Original composition by Giovanni Sollima. Music by Malek Yandali, Arisha Samsamina. Texts by Eleonora Sottili e Emiliano Poddi for Scuola Holden.
