Salvatore Di Vittorio is seen as an heir to the Italian neo-Classical orchestral tradition with a narrative style notable for its colorful orchestration and ‘swelling lyricism’ (American Record Guide). This second volume of his orchestral works includes a vivid portrayal of the cultural and historical diversity of his home city in Overtura Palermo. Di Vittorio’s Symphony No. 3 evokes the beauty and magnificence of Sicilian temples, while Symphony No. 4, Metamorfosi, based on Ovid, is Di Vittorio’s most important work to date.
