My orchestra made a pass through the Dolomites on tour in 1986. We played at the Mahler Festival in Toblach (Broadcast LIVE on the RAI!!!) and other concerts in Bolzen, Cortina, etc. I just remember those beautiful glacial fed lakes surrounded by the craggy peaks of the Dolimite Alps, that brilliant blue water, and that I was in Italy and could speak German anywhere I went. Fond memories.

I was also through this area in 1983 although I didn't make any stops. I travelled frequently between Graz-Venice and also did a trek from Venice to Monte Carlo, passing the southern edge of Lake Garda and Sirmione on the way to Milan. When were you in Venice and Sirmione? It would be hoot if we were in Venice at the same time in 1983 (and yes Central Europe was HOT! in the summer of 1983.): Graz-Venice 3rd week of August, Venice to Milan 4th week of August, Venice-2nd week of September, Firenze and Roma, 3rd & 4th week of September,

That sounds like an amazing week!
