Sounds of the Dolomites: Clarissa Bevilacqua, Vicki Powell

The classical music of two young violin and viola virtuosos blends with the natural beauty of "Col Bel", one of Fassa's most enchanting views

Sounds of the Dolomites is a unique event. A music festival at high altitude that brings together musicians from all over the world in the most beautiful mountains of the Alps. The idea behind this initiative is simple: to combine the great passions for music, art and the mountains in a cycle of concerts under the banner of freedom and nature.

Sounds of the Dolomites: Clarissa Bevilacqua, Vicki Powell. Col Bel (Ciampac-Buffaure), Saturday 7 September at 12 noon

Programme: making their debut at Sounds of the Dolomites in 2024, the two young talents in this violin and viola duo have already proved a big hit on stages all over the world. They will perform works by Mozart, Paganini, Dvorak, Martinu, Halvorsen and Sollima at 2,410 m above sea level on "Col Bel", in Val di Fassa. The sweeping 360° views encompass all the main peaks in the Dolomites, from the Rosengarten-Catinaccio to Marmolada. Clarissa Bevilacqua is a violinist who enchants audiences with her exceptional musicianship and astonishing technical prowess. She was awarded a Bachelor of Music at the age of 16, then completed a Master of Music in Violin Performance at Mozarteum University in Salzburg. In 2023, she opened Mozart Week with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg.  Acclaimed by The New York Times for her probing introspection and by The Philadelphia Inquirer for her "voluptuous tone", violist Vicki Powell has performed as a soloist with various orchestras and taken part in numerous festivals. She is the recipient of a Gold Award in Music from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.
