When pianist Jorge Federico Osorio gave a recital in New York's Lincoln Center earlier this year, The New York Times praised his "considerable imagination for subtle timbres and vivid characterizations" in works of Debussy and his "beautifully articulated" and "explosively virtuosic" readings of Liszt.
Hear those qualities for yourself on Osorio's new CD of Debussy's Preludes Books I & II framed by selections from Liszt's "Années de pèlerinage," the 3 Sonetti del Petrarca, Les jeux d'eaux à la Villa d'Este, and Vallée d'Oberman, which show the genesis of the coloristic piano writing that Debussy took to its highest level.
"Osorio plays on a large canvas, and uses it to the fullest," noted American Record Guide. And that's precisely what he brings to these colorful works by piano masters who use every ounce of the instrument's sonority.
