Suoni dalle colline di Langhe e Roero opens July 16th in Alba and the magic of music travels between the most fascinating places of Langhe and Roero until August 1st.

After the success of the seventh spring edition, Alba Music Festival begins the fourth edition of the summer program, Suoni dalle Colline di Langhe e Roero, seventeen days of concerts, all free admission, with artists from Italy and many countries around the world, such as United States, Japan, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Argentina, England, Germany, in places imbued with life, history, and art.

The echoes of Sounds will spread between the charm of the hills, in a musical voyage that has conquered the favor of lovers of beauty and art, a local and international audience that intently follows this summer itinerary, that superimposes the originality of the programs and the pleasure of the culture to the appeal of extraordinary places.

The artistic Direction: “Traveling between the charm of the places and the magic of music, are the words that more often have accompanied the summer manifestation. Music and emotions interwoven with the culture of the territory, adding the pleasure of art and beauty to the conviviality and hospitality, on a single, natural stage in which the performers and the audience meet to embrace the art with thought and emotion”. 

In the rich programming we can find the Brass Quintet of the National RAI Symphony Orchestra, the famous Arias of Opera and Operetta with the Japanese soprano Miyuki Hayakawa, a performance dedicated to the Argentinean tango with the dancers Nancy Alejandra Micelli and Fernando Oscar Gargaglione, the Romanian State Orchestra with the Fifth Symphony by Beethoven, Harp and dance with Floraleda Sacchi and the Spanish dancer Monica Sanchez, piano recitals with four international soloists from United States, England, Belgium and Germany, with homages to Chopin and Schumann for the bicentennial of their birth, the virtuoso Andrew Balio, trumpet soloist of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Music for images with the revisitation of famous soundtracks, the concert narrated by Bruno Gambarotta on Lorenzo Da Ponte, the librettist of Mozart, and even the Jazz of Barend Middelhoff and his quintet, the bandoneon of Cesare Chiacchiaretta in a program dedicated to Astor Piazzolla and much more.

An extra occasion to discover the beauties of this territory, from the castles of Grinzane Cavour and Magliano Alfieri to the splendid boroughs of Castiglione Falletto, La Morra and Verduno, to the striking Tenuta Carretta of Piobesi, from the Confraternita di San Bernardino of Vezza d’Alba, to the fascinating Santuario della Madonna di Hal di Murazzano, from the boroughs of Treiso, Sinio and Trezzo Tinella to the charm to the High Langhe of Sale San Giovanni and, naturally, Alba.

The festival, created in collaboration with Ente Turismo Alba Bra Langhe Roero, Consorzio Turistico Langhe Monferrato Roero, Strada Romantica delle Langhe e del Roero, is part of Piemonte dal Vivo, traveling with festivals to discover the region.

Their presidents have declared: «We have involved the tourist and commercial activities and promoted the event in Italy and abroad, as a cultural, tourist, and, attractive vehicle for a clientele of high level. Tourist packets, predisposed ad hoc for the Festival, diffused in Italian and foreign tourist agencies, above all American, have allowed us to describe Langhe and Roero as a place of not just commercial and gastronomic vivacity but also cultural, stimulating the desire to know our beautiful hills in the summer, enjoying the pleasantness of unique and striking musical atmospheres».

Six of these sceneries are part of the Strada Romantica of Langhe and Roero, a route conceived for offering a vision of the places and for entering, through words, spaces and stories, in the life of this territory. “Traveling the Strada Romantica of Langhe and Roero means following together the winding procession of the hills, along streets that compete with the sun and vineyards, overlooking views that excite the look, places ready to reveal a new face behind every curve. Here is the protagonist of our story: the landscape, fascinating narrator of stories and silent caretaker of memories".

Among those who have seen in the festival Suoni dalle Colline a further opportunity to live the Langhe and Roero: Ente Turismo Alba Bra Langhe e Roero, Consorzio Turistico Langhe Monferrato Roero, Strada Romantica delle Langhe e del Roero, Associazione Commercianti Albesi, Parco Culturale Langhe Monferrato Roero and naturally the Municipalities and places, real protagonists of the festival.
