What direction is the creativity of Italian composers taking? We are used to hearing repertoire from the great nineteenth-century symphonic tradition in concert halls and we know the greatest composers from the past; but how many of us, if we were honest, would be able to express an opinion about recent works by contemporary composers?
Bringing audiences closer to the music of our own times is the long-term goal pursued by the Sentieri Selvaggi ensemble directed by Carlo Boccadoro - an authoritative reference point for the study, performance and diffusion of contemporary music. No foregone conclusions, no limit to genres, because you can only hate or love what you know.
Thus, listening to music by artists of the generation born between the nineteen-sixties and mid-seventies - Giorgio Taccani, Carlo Galante, Mauro Montalbetti, Silvia Colasanti, Filippo Del Corno and Lucio Gregoretti - we have an opportunity to discover musical paths that go beyond the boundaries of definitions, leading to unexpected fusions of jazz, rock and folk music that converge in personal styles aimed at extending the possibilities of instrumental tonalities and techniques.
