Sounds of the Dolomites: Paolo Fresu, Musega da Poza

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.

The Sounds of the Dolomites: Paolo Fresu, Musega da Poza. Roda di Vael mountain refuge, at 12.00 p.m.

Programme: world music. What are an orchestra rooted in Ladin musical traditions - the Musega de Poza - and a great jazz musician like Paolo Fresu doing together? The answer is simple, but not at all obvious: they are attempting to give form to mountain music by drawing not only on musical folklore heritage, but also on sounds and noises, in order to interact in new ways, to follow new paths. They are collaborating on this with musician and composer, Marco Somadossi, who holds the chair of Composition and Instrumentation for Wind Orchestra at the Jacopo Tomadini Conservatory, Udine. Artistic director: Marco Somadossi.

Getting there:

  • from Vigo di Fassa take the Catinaccio cable car to Ciampedìe, follow the way "Vial da le Feide" until the crossing with the path no. 541. Turn to the left and descend to the Roda di Vael Refuge (walking time: 2 hours). The lift pass can be directly bought at the ticket office;
  • from Pera di Fassa take the chair lifts Vajolet 1, Vajolet 2, Pian Pecei to Ciampediè (20 mins), follow the way "Vial da le Feide" until the crossing with the path no. 541. Turn to the left and descend to the Roda di Vael Refuge (walking time: 2 hours). The lift pass can be directly bought at the ticket office;
  • from Costalunga Pass take the Paolina chair lift (open from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.) and then on foot along the panoramic path no. 549 (called the Hirzel-Weg), which bends round the Majarè mountain to Roda di Vael refuge (walking time: 1 hour and 20 minutes). The lift ticket can be bought at the ticket office and at the tourist offices in Vigo and Pozza.

The concert will be held at about 20 minutes walk from the refuge in the direction of Passo delle Cigolade.

On the day of the concert it is possible to go on an excursion accompanied by the local Alpine guides (free for the Val di Fassa Card and Trentino Guest Card holders). Info and enrolment: Phone +39 0462 609700 (Tourist Office of Vigo), from 8.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 3.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. The concerts of Sounds of the Dolomites are for free. We therefore suggest to reach the venue at least one hour before the scheduled time.
