Sinfonia N. 4 “Metamorfosi” (Symphony No. 4 “Metamorphoses”)
Di Vittorio’s Sinfonia N. 4 “Metamorfosi” (Symphony No. 4 “Metamorphoses”) is based on Ovid’s Metamorphoses and inspired by the Italian paintings The Triumph of Bacchus by Ciro Ferri, Venus and Adonis by Titian, and Aeneas Fleeing from Troy by Federico Barocci. With plans underway for the world premiere, Chamber Orchestra of New York has recorded the work as part of an upcoming album of Di Vittorio’s commissioned orchestral works for Naxos Records.
Here is the second movement Venus and Adonis (published separately) in an earlier premiere with Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
