Alice Sara Ott: Bio

German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott has gained critical acclaim for her performances at major concert halls worldwide and has established herself as one of the most exciting musical talents of today. The Guardian, commenting on her recent performance with the London Symphony Orchestra, said that she "gave the kind of gawp-inducing bravura performance of which legends are made."

Alice has worked with the world's leading conductors, including Lorin Maazel, Paavo Järvi, Neeme Järvi, James Gaffigan, Sakari Oramo, Osmo Vänskä, Vasily Petrenko, Myung-Whun Chung, Hannu Lintu and Robin Ticciati.

Recently Alice has debuted with the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Gustavo Dudamel), Chicago Symphony (Pablo Heras-Casado), Indianapolis (Krzysztof Urbański) and Toronto (Cristian Macelaru) symphony orchestras. She also returned to Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks (Esa-Pekka Salonen) and toured with the Philharmonia Orchestra in China (Vladimir Ashkenazy) and the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Japan (John Storgårds).

Highlights of the 2015/16 season include concerts with Wiener Symphoniker (Pablo Heras-Casado), the National Arts Centre in Ottawa (Alexander Shelley) and London Symphony (Antonio Pappano) orchestras and Münchner Philharmoniker (Nikolaj Znaider). Alice will also tour with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (Charles Dutoit), hr-Sinfonieorchester (Andrés Orozco-Estrada), Sinfonie Orchester Basel (Dennis Russell Davies) and Tonkünstler Orchestra (Yutaka Sado).

Recording exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon since 2008, Alice has since released albums of works by Beethoven, Liszt and Mussorgsky, among others. Her album of Chopin's complete waltzes, which entered the German and US Classical iTunes charts at No.1, won Alice the ECHO Klassik Young Artist of the Year Award. Her debut concerto album – works by Tchaikovsky and Liszt with Münchner Philharmoniker and Thomas Hengelbrock – was named Editor's Choice in both the International Piano and Classic FM magazines.

Alice has recently worked on two unique collaboration projects. With pianist Francesco Tristano, they released their album Scandale on DG in September 2014 and performed it at leading venues in Europe, such as the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Philharmonie Luxembourg, London's Queen Elizabeth Hall and Berliner Philharmonie, as well as touring with it in Japan, South Korea and Australia. Alice's latest CD, The Chopin Project, with Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds, was released in March 2015 on Mercury Classics. The album reached No.1 in the Official UK Classical Chart and the iTunes chart in 25 other countries. They will take the project on a European tour in September 2015, including performances in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Frankurt, Paris and London.
