The Sounds of the Dolomites

Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas

From classical music to traditional folk, magical harmonies to timeless dances.

Fraser and Haas are an example of how two extraordinary artists ventures can come together in perfect synergy. Violinist Alasdair Fraser boasts a thirty-year career of concerts, awards, TV and radio appearances, and film soundtracks that include "Titanic" and "The Last of the Mohicans".
Natalie Haas, a graduate of the Julliard School of Music, is now one of the most sought-after cellists of tradiotional music, performing and recording with Irish supergroups Solas and Altan, as well as Liz Carroll and others.
Their partnership is the fulfillment of a dream for Fraser, the cello historically having played the rhythmic line of Scottish dance music. Playing with joyful energy and in perfect mutual understanding, this duo has literally enchanted the wolrd over the last eighteen years.



Location: Val di Fiemme, Viezzena-Bocche mountain group, Malga Canvere. Between Castelìr and Passo Lusia, woods and pastures look over the peaks of Lagorai mountain chain and Travignolo valley, at the wester border with the Natural Park Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino. You'll be walking on an easy-to-walk forestry road in the wood, surrounded by the most ancient stones of Trentino formed 270 millions of years ago, like those of the near Lagorai. Malga Canvere is a balcony overlooking Pale di San Martino, with its pasture at a short distance from the other malgas. A bit higher, at the foot of Lastè di Lusia, a confused series of small lakes, like pearls of a broken necklace.
