Jorge Federico Osorio deftly pairs Brahms's final solo piano works with those by Schubert for 'Final Thoughts.' An inventive program of richly satisfying works that capture the essence of each composer's towering individuality, here Osorio records Brahms's Three Intermezzos, Op. 117, and Six Piano Pieces, Op. 118, for the first time. He revisits Brahms's Seven Fantasies, Op. 116, and Four Piano Pieces, Op. 119, which he last recorded nearly two decades ago, to great acclaim: "Quite marvelous," said BBC Music Magazine. "It's clear that Jorge Federico Osorio is an important Brahmsian," proclaimed the Chicago Tribune. On his new album, Osorio's penchant for color accentuates the individual character of these concentrated miniatures.

88.1 Harlingen Radio - KJJF host, Mario Munoz sits down with Osorio to discuss  his colorful history along with the new album. Listen to the 3 attached clips.
