Piano Español
Jorge Federico Osorio, piano
Cedille Records CDR 90000 075

"10/10 -- This splendid recital adds up to more than the sum of its various parts. At 78 minutes it's also a very good deal. Jorge Federico Osorio knows this music as well as any pianist alive, and his performances bespeak the wisdom of maturity with no loss of freshness or spontaneity.... There's poetry aplenty, but also bravura. Sonically this recording strikes me as ideal. In short, what you hear is what Osorio does, and what he does is pretty terrific." -- ClassicsToday.com

"Make no mistake about it, Osorio is a major pianist, and this handsome collection of Spanish masterpieces is proof of that fact.... If you want the best possible introduction to Spanish piano classics, played by the successor to de Larrocha, get this gorgeous-sounding recording." (Fanfare)

"Choosing one highlight over another is impossible in a recording of such sustained excellence." (San Francisco Chronicle)
