Notes & Reviews:

Rising star Alice Sara Ott's new recording documents her summer 2012 rite of passage debut at the prestigious White Nights Festival.

Alice Sara Ott's challenging program center upon Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

Her virtuosic technique and youthful brilliance deliver the majesty, colors and spontaneity that this music requires.

The power, passion and beauty which Alice Sara brings to Schubert's thrilling Sonata No. 17 is insightful and memorable.

He stellar career coincides with the enthusiastic international acclaim her Deutsche Grammophon recordings and performances garner. As the Guardian writes: "... it was good to hear live the qualities that shine through on Ott's recordings - the crystalline tone and prodigious range of color the perfectly even, crisp technique... "

Further to that Alice will be participating MIDEM 2013, the annual business event dedicated to music, as "Artist Ambassador" of the piano evening on 28 January 2013 (www.midem.com).

The Independent, 18th January 2013
Recording Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition live in Saint Petersburg must have taken great courage and self-belief. Which was not misplaced: she negotiates the various pictures' stylistic twists and turns with confidence and expressive brio.

There are several things I like about Ott's Pictures: that sense of a connected cycle, the relevance of each movement to the next, the character of Mussorgsky's sometimes nightmarish visions superbly expressed, these are all marvellous aspects of a piece which is also a technical tour-de-force.
