Alice Sara Ott - Wonderland / KDFC: Album of the Week

Bookmark and Share

Alice Sara Ott is convinced that Edvard Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor offers profound insights into our common humanity. The work emerged as the natural choice for her second concerto album for Deutsche Grammophon. Wonderland, which is completed by a selection of the composer's Lyric Pieces, reflects the German-Japanese pianist's affinity for Grieg. It also mines the experience of a dozen years during which she has grown from teenage prodigy to mature artist. For the concerto Ott is joined by Esa-Pekka Salonen who leads the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. 

The album has been selected as KDFC: San Francisco 'Album Of the Week'
