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: Joscho Stephan Trio. Pure energy and free style with the star of gipsy jazz. Buffaure (Pozza di Fassa), at 12.00 p.m.
Programme: with his first four albums, including his acclaimed debut album Swinging Strings, nominated CD of the month by American magazine Guitar Player, Joscho Stephan entered the illustrious circle of top musicians in the gipsy swing style, which emerged in the thirties with jazz guitar virtuoso Django Reinhardt. The German guitarist has not simply adopted this musical style, he stretches its boundaries and takes it to the highest levels. His talent is recognised by the many who have taken to the stage with him, from Paquito de Rivera to James Carter, from Charlie Mariano to Grady Tate, and is reaffirmed in tours and festivals in countries that include Australia, Slovenia, France, Poland, the United Kingdom and Italy.
