NYC: Chamber Orchestra of New York delivers two new works
October 28, 2017
New works written for American chamber orchestras will be featured on a Carnegie Hall program Oct. 28. The Chamber Orchestra of New York, celebrating its tenth anniversary, will give the world premiere of Palermo Overture, composed by its own director, Salvatore Di Vittorio, who will conduct the concert.
The same orchestra will also reprise a work introduced last season by the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, composed by its director, Dirk Brossé, who was inspired to write his own Pictures at an Exhibition after paintings in the Philadelphia Music of Art. The Peaceable Kingdom by Edward Hicks (1826), The Gross Clinic by Thomas Eakins (1875), Fair Weather by Man Ray (1939), and Road and Trees by Edward Hopper (1962) were among his inspirations.
