Notes & Reviews:

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.

You might almost guess the title of the light and sparklingly playful Overtura Respighiana from the first few bars - the Roman trilogy is much in evidence. Later on the older composer's dreaminess and Rossinian tarantella tendencies are referenced. All uproarious fun.

Fanfare
... beautiful music is beautiful music, regardless of when it's written, and Di Vittorio proves himself with this CD to be a composer of beautiful music extraordinaire. I strongly recommend this release to you for many hours of listening pleasure.

MusicWeb International
Clearly, Di Vittorio has an affinity with Respighi, and indeed the blurb for this release describes him as "hailed by critics as 'following in the footsteps of Respighi'". The CD thus opens appropriately with the Overtura Respighiana, a light, cheery piece that "fuses Rossini's influence on Respighi with both of their influences on Di Vittorio's own musical language".
