Our Dear Friend, Violinist, Film maker, and Principal for the Music school in Trento, Italy; Corrado Bungaro has since we worked together last time in 2007 had the vision of more collaboration with Tim Linhart and Ice Music and now it is happening! (Read more about Corrado at the end and check out his wonderful 1 minute film: https://vimeo.com/5319024 )
The end result will become an artistic movie of the waters way from the glacier to the melting down in the sea. The Science museum in Trento www.muse.it/en/ will host concerts and use the movie to show the world how the glaciers in the alps and all around the world are melting.
Some of the very best recorded Ice Music we have is with Giovanni Sollima www.giovannisollima.it/. He is one of the most important cellists and composers in the world. We are so thrilled to have him be the ice cellist once again for the concerts and the film.
If you are going to Trento, Venice, Rome and Palermo any time soon, here is our scedule:
The only ice instrument will be the Ice Cello and it is built on the glacier in Pase del Tonale in the province of Trento. The wind are vicious up on the mountain and riped the cello into pieces over night so after this little film clip below Tim moved in to the less romantic place of a gondola garage:-). There is more to this event than “just” an Ice Music tour. We will keep you updated!
