GRAMMY® winning Buenos Aires native Fernando Otero is a compositional and pianistic powerhouse. He crosses genres with his improvisational flair, deeply rooted in Tango, yet effortlessly quoting from the classical and jazz lexicons. Commissions from performers and institutions alike include The New York State Council on The Arts , Lincoln Center, Kronos Quartet, Imani Winds, Paquito D’Rivera, and Arturo O’Farrill.
"Mr. Otero vibrantly summoned tango ancestors while also acknowledging Bartok and Prokofiev," The New York Times
"alternates between jagged suspenseful crescendos and long, sinuous melodies. This music bounds out of the speakers and leaps into every corner of the room at once, exhilarating but also bewildering." Jazziz Magazine
"a resourceful pianist and composer...a darkly ravishing album," The New York Times
