Chamber Orchestra of New York at Adelphi University on June 8
The Chamber Orchestra of New York was founded in 2006 as the first auditioned young professionals orchestra in the history of New York City. The orchestra holds a regular concert series at Carnegie Hall - the venue of its October 2007 debut - and returns regularly to The Morgan Library & Museum and Adelphi University Performing Arts Center - the home of its Naxos recordings, airing worldwide to much acclaim.
Its founding Music Director Salvatore Di Vittorio has worked with many leading orchestras as both composer and conductor, especially in his native Italy, and has been recognized as "following in the footsteps of Ottorino Respighi" after a commission from the Bolognese composer's family. Maestro Di Vittorio's compositions and Respighi editions are distributed by Italy's principal publisher, Casa Ricordi in Milan.
In addition to Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27, the concert will celebrate the launching of the Piano Concerto Award of The Respighi Prize music competition featuring Adelphi's Fazioli Pianoforte (Venice). The program also features Schubert's Symphony No. 5.
