Oxford University Press invites Maestro Di Vittorio to lead the US Premieres of early rediscovered works of major English composer Vaughan Williams. The orchestra receives grants from the Vaughan Williams Trust, and then from the Walton Trust to also showcase rarities of Walton at Carnegie Hall in May 2014.
Di Vittorio and the Chamber Orchestra of New York announce their Sixth Season 2013/2014 at Carnegie Hall, including U.S. Premieres of recently published rediscoveries of Alessandro Scarlatti and early works of Ralph Vaughan Williams. The season opener will be held on October 12, 2013 in celebration of Columbus Day Week festivities and Italy Month.
Di Vittorio publishes his first paper on the topic of Respighi rediscoveries entitled “Ottorino Respighi Before Fountains of Rome: Rediscovered Early Works Foreshadow Later Masterpieces”, with College Music Society Symposium (Volume 51). The paper focuses on Di Vittorio’s critical editions of Respighi’s Aria and Suite for strings.
Di Vittorio publishes five new orchestral works with his publisher Panastudio, also registering the works with SIAE in Italy: his own Stabat Mater Speciosa (for the Nativity), his orchestration completion of Respighi’s Tre Liriche for mezzo-soprano and orchestra, and three other critical editions – including, Respighi’s Serenata for small orchestra, Suite in G Major for organ and strings, and Claudio Monteverdi’s Il Lamento di Arianna.
