Sounds of the Dolomites: Lorenza Borrani, Riikka Repo

High altitude concerts in Val di Fassa with the best interpreters of the music

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: Lorenza Borrani, Riikka Repo, Ursina Braun, Carla Maria Rodrigues, Mats Zetterqvist. String instruments without borders where the mountains are the essence. Antermoia Refuge (Mazzin), at 12.00 p.m.

Programme: a decidedly international project, it brings together eminent musicians from Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and Great Britain. Beginning with violinist Lorenza Borrani, she trained at the Fiesole Music School and the Florence Conservatory before embarking on a career that has seen her perform as a soloist with some of the world’s foremost orchestras, including the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, win prestigious awards and establish in 2007 Spira Mirabilis, the musical laboratory for professional musicians. Swiss musician Ursina Braun also joined the Spira Mirabilis project, having played the cello since the age of 6 and having won awards that include a gold medal at the "Mainardi" competition at the Salzburg Mozarteum. Riikka Repo and Mats Zetterqvist are, instead, from Sweden. Repo, a passionate, sophisticated chamber musician is currently co-principal viola of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Zetterqvist, who joined the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in 1994 as guest leader and was principal second violin from 2009 to 2017, has been a soloist with all the leading orchestras of Sweden. Carla Maria Rodrigues trained at the Yehudi Menuhin School studying both viola and violin and since a young age she has been performing as soloist and chamber musician in London’s main concert halls. She now lives in the USA where she is principal viola of the San Francisco Opera.
