The Sounds of the Dolomites
GIDON KREMER, KREMERATA BALTICA, ARNE GLORVIGEN
Homage to Astor Piazzolla
This inaugural concert uses space and time as threads in its rich tapestry, tightly sewing up the geographical distance between the Baltic Sea and the Mar de la Plata as well as the passage of the years: 100 since the birth of Astor Piazzolla, 25 since the founding of the Kremerata Baltica. It has also been 25 years since Maestro Gidon Kremer dedicated his first musical homage to Piazzolla, recognising him as an inspirational musician who utterly revolutionised the Argentinian tango.
On Malga Canvere’s natural stage, where the pure white peaks of the Pale di San Martino stretch towards the sky, this event is imbued with fresh life and becomes a dialogue between a diversity of styles, languages, and the features shared by the classical tradition and an informal folk style. This back-and-forth is reminiscent of the colgadas y volcadas of a smooth and well-choreographed dance, becoming a music which transcends thought and becomes emotion, as Jorge Luis Borges would put it.
Gidon Kremer and the Kremerata Baltica will lead us on a journey through the music of Piazzolla, revisiting both his own works and those of his contemporaries and not forgetting some of the genre’s most defining hallmarks, such as the bandoneon played by Arne Glorvigen, joining the orchestra for the occasion.
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.
