CD of the Week: Alice Sara Ott: Wonderland
The German-Japanese pianist performs a concerto and character pieces that showcase Edvard Grieg’s adoration of Norwegian folklore and mythology.
Stepping into the public spotlight as a child prodigy, Alice Sara Ott has since become one of the world’s leading performers of Grieg’s piano repertoire. With his sole piano concerto as the centerpiece, the program also explores selections from Grieg’s Lyric Pieces and Peer Gynt Suite, transporting the listener to a landscape of dreamlike mythology.
