Fernando Otero 

Fernando Otero is a GRAMMY®-winning Argentine composer, pianist and vocalist based in New York City.

He has been described by many critics as a classically-trained virtuoso pianist and composer who developed his own style by blending elements of classical contemporary music and improvisation while acknowledging Tango as a starting point. He found his voice when he began to incorporate the indigenous sounds of his native Buenos Aires into his work.

Otero has recorded 16 albums as a solo artist and performs more than 100 international concerts yearly. His works are published by Warner Chappell Music and his albums have been released by Nonesuch Records, Warner Music, Harmonia Mundi and World Village.

He has received commissions from performers and institutions worldwide and has written music for orchestra, chamber ensembles, string quartet and choir, as well as for solo instruments including piano, violin and cello.

Shortly after moving to the US in the 1990’s he worked with correspondingly diverse collaborators including Paquito D’Rivera, the Kronos Quartet, Quincy Jones, and Eddie Gómez — who in 2005 introduced Otero as one of the great pianists of a new generation.

Otero has scored the soundtracks for numerous movies, including Sin Palabras, DD is Dead, Unloosened and Root, A Strange Turn, and Franketienne.
