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" with Maria Pia Devito and Ensemble Burnogualà. Col Margherita (San Pellegrino Pass-Moena), at 6.00 a.m.
Programme: jazz music. Africa, Naples, the Mediterranean and improvisation mingle with Renaissance melodies and the music of great contemporary composers. The whole is articulated by the voices of the Ensemble Burnogualà, who, under the guidance of singer and composer Maria Pia Devito, engage with and develop Orlando di Lasso’s “Moresche" - carnival cycles, parodies, dances – drawing the audience into stories of slaves and freedom, using the sounds of distant worlds, imitations of instruments and animal calls.
