Notes & Reviews:

Rarely performed, the Piano Concerto of 20th-century Mexican composer Carlos Chavez receives an insightful, idiomatic, and compelling performance from Mexican-born pianist Jorge Federico Osorio, the Orquestra Sinfónica Nacional de México, and conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto. Surprising tempo changes and a whirlwind of styles make the work a thrill ride for performers and audiences alike!

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Wow, the Chavez concerto is a knucklebuster! The solo pieces are very good inclusions, solid and serious. The pianist is fully up to the demands of all the works, and the sound is good, too.
