The newest release from Jorge Frederico Osorio is sumptuous music by Franz Schubert and Johannes Brahms. On Osorio's first Schubert recording, Final Thoughts, he performs the composer's final two Piano Sonatas, D. 959 and D. 960, hailed as "epic in scale and brimming with melodic invention." Jorge's Cedille Records albums of Mexican and Spanish music have "introduced the pianist to new audiences worldwide, but Osorio can now heard in more of the core German repertoire that has been central to his concert life for decades." WBAA Music Director John Clare spoke with Osorio about Final Thoughts.
Osorio recorded Final Thoughts that included Brahms' Three Intermezzos, Op. 117, and Six Piano Pieces, Op. 118, for the first time, while revisiting Brahms's Seven Fantasies, Op. 116, and Four Piano Pieces, Op. 119, which he last recorded nearly two decades ago!
