Jorge Federico Osorio, an imaginative interpreter with a powerful technique (The New York Times), deftly pairs Brahmss final solo piano works with those by Schubert for an inventive program of richly satisfying works that capture the essence of each composers towering individuality. Here, Osorio records Brahmss Three Intermezzos, Op. 117, and Six Piano Pieces, Op 118, which he last recorded nearly two decades ago, to great acclaim: Quite marvelous, said BBC Music Magazine. Its clear that Jorge Federico Osorio is an important Brahmsian, proclaimed the Chicago Tribune. On his new album, Osorios penchant for color accentuates the individual character of these concentrated miniatures. Osorio has also chosen to record Schuberts final two Piano Sonatas, D. 959 and D. 960, epic in scale and brimming with melodic invention. His insights into the musics architecture yield eloquent performances of these spacious, ambitious masterworks.
