The Sounds of the Dolomites
ISABELLE FAUST, KRISTIN VON DER GOLTZ, ANNE KATHARINA SCHREIBER, DANUSHA WASKIEWICZ
A quartet of excellent musicians of international renown, starting with Isabelle Faust – previously seen at "Sounds of the Dolomites" – who first picked up the violin at just 5 years of age and at 15 won the prestigious Leopold Mozart Competition and continues to draw admiration from audiences and critics. Returning to the mountains with her is Danusha Waskiewicz, first viola with leading orchestras, from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra to the La Scala Orchestra in Milan, to name but two. They are joined by the talented German-Norwegian cellist and Baroque music expert, Kristin von der Goltz, and violinist Anne Katharina Schreiber, member of the Freiburger Barockorchester and other musical groups.
Location: Val di Fiemme, Cornacci Group - Monte Agnello, Buse de Tresca. Walking on the trails that from Alpe di Pampeago or Passo Feudo climb to Buse de Tresca, at the foot of Dos Capèl, is like leafing through a book on the amazing geological history of the Dolomites. What could be more exciting than treading right on the crater’s mouth of what 230 million years ago had become the largest volcano in Europe, so huge that it later collapsed under its own weight? All this, and being able to admire in front of you the Pale di San Martino and the most southern part of the Latemar group.
