Hot on the heels of the recent rediscovery Respighi's Violin Concerto, Salvatore Di Vittorio has recorded a disc of his own music, including Overtura Respighiana. Hailed by critics as"following in the footsteps of Respighi", Salvatore Di Vittorio's"serious, lyrical and romantic" work appears here in its ideal light: conducted by the composer and performed by the orchestra he founded in 2006, noted for its"stirring... voluptuous" sound The New York Times. Italian influences abound. Echoes of Rossini, Scarlatti and the Renaissance heighten this music's narrative appeal, while the moving Sinfonia No. 2 turns more to the Germanic worlds of Brahms and Mahler for its elegiac message.
