Earlier this year, pianist Alice Sara Ott became the face of the Apple Music Classical app when she starred in its launch video, performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 15 with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Karina Canellakis. The recording of it now becomes the headline work in Ott’s latest Deutsche Grammophon album, Beethoven. The pianist has paired it with a series of solo works, including “Für Elise” and the “Moonlight” Sonata. Beethoven is released digitally on 28 July – together with a “Für Elise” video – and on CD on 29 September.

With global streams of 325 million and counting to her name, Alice Sara Ott is known as one of the most compelling artists of her generation. Beethoven follows 2021’s critically acclaimed Echoes Of Life, of which BBC Music Magazine said, “Her playing is technically unimpeachable, with beauty of tone, virtuoso flair and fine musical judgment throughout.”

Alice Sara Ott has long been praised for her insightful interpretations of Beethoven’s music. “He is a master of contrasts and proportions,” she explains, when asked what his work means to her.  “In his music, the piano becomes an orchestra, a theatrical stage … he builds entire landscapes and cities with his musical architecture.”
