Born in Palermo, Italy, composer and conductor Salvatore Di Vittorio has been hailed "a lyrical musical spirit, respectful of the ancient Italian tradition, following in the footsteps of Ottorino Respighi" - Luigi Verdi, Philharmonic Academy of Bologna. He was first noticed when Italian chamber orchestras programmed his works alongside Respighi, and later gained considerable attention with his completion of the first Violin Concerto (in A) and other works of Respighi - a commission from the great nieces and archive curator. With La Villa d'Este a Tivoli in 2016, Di Vittorio reached a significant milestone when he became the first composer to dedicate a work to The Morgan Library & Museum, and the first Italian composer during his lifetime to be invited to donate an autograph manuscript to the museum's world-renowned music archive.
