Interview with Spokane Public Radio's James Tenevan

Jorge Federico Osorio, pairs Brahms's final solo piano works with those by Schubert for an inventive program of richly satisfying works that capture the essence of each composer's towering individuality. 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.

Maestro Osorio sat down with Spokane Public Radio's James tenevan to discuss the album. Listen to the attached clip.
