COPERTINA PUBBLICITA 2014 -11 versIn the Spring 2014 issue of the League of American Orchestras’ Symphony Magazine, the Italian publisher Gruppo Editoriale Panastudio announces the international launch of their works catalog featuring the Ottorino Respighi Publications and Di Vittorio’s published orchestral works. The launch coincides with the upcoming centennial of Respighi’s Fountains of Rome in 2016, in advance of the 2015/2016 season. The advertisement was made in agreement with Casa Ricordi which handles Respighi’s mature works (and their U.S. agent Boosey & Hawkes), Naxos Records, and David Daniels’ Orchestral Music catalog for orchestras/conductors – which now lists all of Di Vittorio’s published orchestral scores and critical editions of Respighi’s early works.

The work was written in honor of his native city of Palermo and its Mayor Leoluca Orlando, and for both major Palermo orchestras – Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana and the Orchestra del Teatro Massimo Opera.

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.
