The debut of the ensemble in Milan was sold out. From the outset, Sentieri selvaggi's concerts are characterised by informal spoken presentations of each piece. Over the last 15 years, Sentieri selvaggi has collaborated with the most important composers on the international scene, such as Lang, Andriessen, MacMillan, Glass, Bryars, Nyman, Wolfe, Vacchi, who have written scores for the ensemble or entrusted it with the Italian premieres of their works. Alongside them, the group promotes and disseminates a new generation of Italian composers, starting with the founders Boccadoro and Del Corno and continuing with Antonioni, Colasanti, Mancuso, Montalbetti and Verrando. Since 1998, Sentieri selvaggi has been a regular guest at Italy's most prestigious music seasons (Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Teatro alla Scala, Venice Biennale), at major cultural events in Italy (Festival della Letteratura in Mantua, Notte Bianca in Rome, Festival della Scienza in Genoa) and at important international festivals (Bang On A Can Marathon in New York, SKIF Festival in St. Petersburg). In Milan, the group has been a partner since 1998 with Teatridithalia, which hosts concerts in its own theatres and since 2005 has organised a contemporary music season with a programme of concerts, meetings and masterclasses, focusing each year on a specific thematic nucleus. But in order to disseminate contemporary music in unusual contexts, Sentieri selvaggi also collaborates with writers, architects, scientists, video-makers, actors, directors, rock and jazz musicians, inhabiting alternative spaces such as art galleries, squares, streets, shopping centres and universities with its projects. The group's catalogue of editorial and record productions counts over 10 titles produced for Einaudi, RaiTrade, MN Records, Velut Luna, Sensible Records. Since 2003 Sentieri selvaggi has been under contract with Cantaloupe Music, a New York label founded by Bang On A Can, for which it has released four CDs: the latest, Zingiber, is dedicated to new Italian musical creativity. An important chapter in Sentieri selvaggi's work is musical theatre productions, with productions (including Filippo Del Corno's Io Hitler, Michael Nyman's L'uomo che scambiò sua moglie per un cappello, Philip Glass's The Sound of a Voice) that involve an even wider audience.
