The Argentine composer and pianist Fernando Otero found his voice as writer, musician and bandleader when, at the urging of one of his music teachers, he began to incorporate the indigenous sounds of his native Buenos Aires into his work. A unique and provocative style developed, which combined the improvisatory thrill of jazz with a contemporary classical structure in compositions that were often fast–paced and intense, full of dramatic stops and starts.
Otero made a powerful impression in 2008 with his acclaimed debut album on Nonesuch: Pagina de Buenos Aires. In November 2010, he won the Latin Grammy for Best Classical album for Vital (World Village).
Embraced by the New York jazz scene, the now Brooklyn-based musician has performed with legendary bassist Eddie Gomez, flautist Dave Valentin, the Arturo O’Farrill Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, and was featured on the 2008 Grammy Award-winning album Funk Tango by reed maestro Paquito D’Rivera, with whom he has also performed at Birdland, Blue Note, and the Caramoor Festival.
He has received a commission by the Kronos Quartet, The Cherry Tree, which premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2008, and has also composed for Imani winds, pianist Krisztina Wajsza, cellist Inbal Segev, the Ahn Trio, and a double concerto for two pianos performed by himself and Yana Reznik.
