Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Mexican-born, European-trained pianist Jorge Federico Osorio has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the more elegant and accomplished pianists on the planet" and a performer who "always brings new insights, eloquent readings, and an effortless virtuosity all his assignments." A New York Times concert review praised his "considerable imagination for subtle timbres and vivid characterization" and said "the sweep and freshness of his readings made his performances impossible to resist."

On Salón Mexicano, Osorio presents 20 buried treasures from a bygone Romantic era. It’s a program of instantly enjoyable gems of intimate "party music" by influential Mexican composers Felipe Villanueva (1862 –1893), Ricardo Castro (1864–1907), Manuel M. Ponce (1882–1948), and José Rolón (1876–1945). They found inspiration in the virtuosic waltzes and mazurkas of European composer-pianists like Chopin and Liszt.

Salón Mexicano is an album of captivating compositions intended to entertain. On it, Osorio introduces them to 21st-century listeners with the luminous and beautifully sculpted pianism that has enchanted critics and audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
