L. Bernstein - Symphonic Dances from "West Side Story"
Not much to say about this recording, other than West Side Story is one of my all time favorite stage works

Moisés Moleiro - Joropo
It's always nice to perform some Venezuelan music in foreign lands, and Minsk is one of the farthest places I've ever been from home, so it was pretty cool that for this encore, my conductor, Gerardo Estrada, picked up our traditional maracas to accompany me on this
Olivier Messiaen - Le Baiser de l'Enfant Jésus
Performed in the Schubert Saal of the Wiener Konzerthaus on June 4th, 2014.

That is probably the most self-indulging last chord I have ever played...
Arrorró Yekuana con Estrellas y ChinchorroV
In Venezuela, an Arrorró is a lullaby. Yekuanas are an indigenous tribe that lives in the south of the country, near the Orinoco River.
On Sunday, March 23rd, my friend Adriana Urquiola was shot in Venezuela and not because she was protesting against the government, she just happened to be coming back home with her husband. Adriana was 4 months pregnant.
In 2013 there were almost 25.000 violent deaths in Venezuela, a number that has been on a steady rise since 1998 and doesn't seem to start going down in the future. The entire country is suffering from the same problems and is politically divided in half, without people realizing that we just have to work together to fix this somehow.
I recorded this video to honor the memory of my friend Adriana, and would like to dedicate it to all the mothers that have lost a child in the last years in Venezuela. All these deaths hurt everyone, regardless of political side.

W. A. Mozart - Adagio in B minor, K. 540
I do a lot of contemporary music, but once in a while I do like to sit down and play some of the great oldies. Late Mozart is one of my favorites
