One of Respighi’s masterpieces, Gli uccelli (The Birds) includes transcriptions of birdsong and music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in writing of evocative, captivating lyricism.
Trittico botticelliano, an illustration of three paintings by Botticelli, employs dance rhythms, modal melodies and a variant of the medieval hymn Veni, Veni Emmanuel in deft, often sublime fashion.
The Suite in G major, cast for strings and organ in the form of a concerto grosso, is heard on this première recording in its original edition.
Palermo-born Salvatore Di Vittorio has achieved international recognition as both a composer and conductor. He has gained considerable attention with his orchestration and completion of Respighi’s rediscovered First Violin Concerto (Naxos 8573168), commissioned by Respighi’s great nieces and archive curator.
