Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

Internationally admired concert pianist Jorge Federico Osorio, praised by The New York Times for "the sweep and freshness of his readings," offers a riveting and richly pictorial recital on his first-ever recording of Russian masterworks for solo piano. Mussorgsky's original piano setting of his popular Pictures at an Exhibition anchors an absorbing program that includes Prokofiev's Sixth Sonata and Romeo and Juliet Before Parting, plus Shostakovich's Prelude and Fugue No. 24 in D minor.

Critic Reviews

"That Jorge Federico Osorio possesses the fingers to execute, even vanquish, the music of this recital becomes obvious from the opening flourishes of Prokofiev’s first of his “wartime sonatas,” the 1939 A Major Sonata, with its pounding, toccata-style Allegro moderato first movement. The dazzling percussion- some characterize the writing as “brutal” or “implacable” – finds some relief in the secondary motif, but the intent to dazzle or intimidate the ear never recedes from our consciousness."

John von Rhein Chicago Tribune

"Osorio eschews the flashy pyrotechnics pianists in the post-Horowitz tradition bring to the Viktor Hartmann picture gallery, using his virtuosity to illuminate what makes the music still feel so starkly original." 

John Bell Young Fanfare

"For most listeners, Osorio’s way with this music will be intelligible, exciting, and immensely satisfying. The engineering is outstanding, bringing to bear the sound of an exceptionally rich piano that is never shrill or harsh." 

Lisa Flynn WFMT

"Internationally admired concert pianist Jorge Federico Osorio, praised by The New York Times for “the sweep and freshness of his readings,” offers a riveting and richly pictorial recital on his first-ever recording of Russian masterworks. Mussorgsky’s original piano setting of his popular Pictures at an Exhibition anchors an absorbing program that includes Prokofiev’s Sixth Sonata and Romeo and Juliet Before Parting, plus Shostakovich’s Prelude and Fugue No 24."
