Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

For her Deutsche Grammophon debut, Alice Sara Ott has chosen the awe-inspiring Transcendental Etudes which, in her words, "mirror every aspect of Liszt's multi-faceted personality. Only a performance of the complete cycle captures his immense quasi-orchestral and symphonic vision".

"Her fingers are never afraid. They clarify the multiple strands in the most complex furies of Mazeppa. They fade away with sighing beauty at the close of Ricordanza." -The Times

"Ott is already a serious Lisztian. Here she treads fearlessly... Performances are fresh, authoritative, lyrical and jaw-dropping." -The Observer

"Her technique is dazzling, her tone wonderfully varied, from crystalline purity to powerfully raw, and the energy propelling her playing seems unstoppable. These are ferocious, swaggeringly confident accounts of the Liszt studies." -The Guardian

"Alice Sara Ott is a remarkable talent and her account is a significant achievement full of interest." -Gramophone Magazine
