More Info:

Distinguished international pianist Jorge Federico Osorio brings his flair for French music to works of the Baroque, Romantic, and early 20th century eras by Jean-Philippe Rameau, Emmanuel Chabrier, Gabriel Fauré, Claude Debussy, and Maurice Ravel. Fittingly, Osorio opens The French Album with Fauré's exquisite Pavane and concludes with the ever-popular Pavane pour une enfante défunte by Fauré's student, Ravel. The Mexican-born, European-trained pianist offers eight of Debussy's pictorial Préludes, each with it's unique sound world, including the mystical La Cathédrale engloutie, one of the most stunning pieces ever composed for piano. Another audience favorite is Debussy's evocative Claire de lune from his Suite bergamasque. Providing contrast, Rameau's whimsical Les Tricotets conjures the back-and-forth motion of knitting needles. A set of Spanish-flavored works include Chabrier's Cuban-inspired Habanera; Debussy's lively La Puerta del Vino, depicting sailors carousing and enjoying their wine, and La soirée dans Grenade, where the piano imitates the sound of a guitar; and Ravel's Alborado del gracioso, brimming with Iberian rhythms.
