On her new album Alice Sara Ott takes us into the world of mountain trolls and elves, hills and fjords through a selection of Grieg’s works – his Lyric Pieces, as well as through selected piano versions of pieces from the Peer Gynt Suites, and one of the most famous works of piano literature: Grieg’s piano concerto in A minor, for which she teams up with one of the top orchestras, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, under star conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen at a live recording.

selection Wonderland reviews

“…brilliant young pianist Alice Sara Ott takes us on a journey into the world of Edvard Grieg, complete with mountain trolls and elves, hills and fjords”
John Suchet, Classic FM

“In the selection of “Lyric Pieces” and some numbers from “Peer Gynt”, Ott displays a good range of expression, conjuring deep lyricism for “Solveig’s Song”, and light, glittering fingerwork for the regrettably titled “March of the Trolls””
Jessica Duchen, BBC Music Magazine
