About

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.

Osorio recently performed Pictures at an Exhibition to great acclaim at Orchestra Hall in Chicago and for the University of California at Berkeley’s Cal Performances series. The Chicago Tribune applauded his “unruffled mastery”, while San Francisco Classical Voice admired his “remarkable ability to navigate a sea of ardor without losing control”.

“One of the more elegant and accomplished pianists on the planet” (Los Angeles Times), Osorio’s pianism is a unique, cosmopolitan blend of Russian and French influences. After graduating from the National Conservatory in his native Mexico City, Osorio worked with Jacob Milstein at the Moscow Conservatory and, before that, with Bernard Flavigny and Monique Haas at the Paris Conservatory.

Russian Recital is the pianist’s sixth Cedille Records album. It joins a distinguished discography that includes releases on the Artek, ASV, CBS, EMI, IMP and Naxos labels.
