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: Trio in uno. Musical finesse, colour and richness open a new chapter in Brazilian music. Passo delle Selle Refuge (San Pellegrino Pass - Moena), at 12.00 p.m.
Programme: established in 2014, the Trio in Uno project brings together Brazilians Pablo Schinke on cello and José Ferreira on seven-stringed guitar and Italian Giulia Tamanini on saxophone. This ensemble abounds with energy and empathy, and is able to create new sounds in a unique, vigorous and sophisticated amalgamation that explores Brazilian music at 360 degrees. Their music ranges from popular to the expressiveness of classical and also brings in music by great Brazilian composers, such as Egberto Gismonti, Sergio Assad, Hermeto Pascoal, Marco Pereira and Radamés Gnattali. Trio in Uno came to wide public attention with their album "Lilas", which was received with instant enthusiastic acclaim by international and French critics. They have appeared on numerous radio and television shows and toured extensively in Brazil and Europe. In 2017 they created another project with chamber and symphony orchestras known as the "Trio in Uno and Orchestra".
