Already a star in Japan, piano-wonder (Hamburger Abendblatt) Alice Sara Ott will conquer the entire world of music with her International Deutsche Grammophon debut album – the complete Chopin Waltzes
This collection of immortal piano gems fits Ott’s talents like the proverbial glove. Her colorful, vital playing reveals the spectrum of her artistry and musicality
Ott’s triumphant recital at Munich’s Herkulessaal in January 2007, performing Beethoven and Liszt, occasioned the Süddeutsche Zeitung to rave that “Ott lends a personal, almost overwhelming poetic charm to this splendid music, transporting her listeners into ecstatic delight”. Her recent concerts in Germany this summer led to similar raving reviews, spear-headed by Hamburger Abendblatt which called her a pianist of devilish talent
