Chamber Orchestra of New York was founded in honor of Ottorino Respighi - the preeminent early twentieth century Italian composer whose compositions bridge the classical and modern traditions. The orchestra's programming presents great works of the 20th and 21st centuries, including film scores and rarely performed gems, alongside ancient music.

A native of Italy, Salvatore Di Vittorio has achieved international recognition as a composer and conductor, hailed by Luigi Verdi of the prestigious Philharmonic Academy of Bologna, as a "lyrical musical spirit, respectful of the ancient Italian tradition...and an emerging leading interpreter of the music of Ottorino Respighi." He gained considerable attention with his orchestration and completion of Ottorino Respighi's rediscovered first Violin Concerto (in A Major), a commission he received from Respighi's family descendants and archive curator.
