Alice Sara Ott 

piano recital: Echoes of Life 
  • Sun 4 Dec ’22
    20:15
    Jurriaanse Zaal

German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott belongs to the newest generation of star musicians at Deutsche Grammophon, the renowned classical music label. This honour is not for everyone. The Guardian confirms: “bravura performance of which legends are made”.  
In her solo recital, Ott goes one step futher and turns her personal reflection on Chopin’s 24 Preludes (for which she is applauded) into a contemporary multimedial Gesamtkunstwerk in which old and new repertory find each other effortlessly.
