Following her London debut late last year, Ott will perform at the Barbican Centre on 15th February, accompanying the LSO under Gianandrea Noseda in Liszt’s passionate Piano Concerto No. 2. Having recorded several of his works, Ott is something of a Liszt specialist, and promises to bring her insight to bear on one of the most virtuosic pieces in the repertoire. Afterwards, the orchestra will play Mahler’s staggeringly intense Symphony No. 6.
But that is not all – on the 23rd of April, Ott will make her solo debut at Wigmore Hall for a performance of Bach, Liszt and Beethoven. Opening with the latter’s Piano Sonata No. 17, the tumultuous ‘Tempest’, she will then play two Bach masterworks, including Busoni’s keyboard transcription of the legendary ‘Chaconne’ from the Partita No. 2. Finally, after a segment from Lizst’s Liebesträume, she will finish with the same composer’s Grandes etudes de Paginini. Booking opens on February 3rd.
Finally, on the 11th June, Ott takes to the Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall for a remarkable collaboration with Italian pianist Francesco Tristano, whose classical work has been accompanied by a parallel career in dance music. The pair will play a selection of pieces from Debussy and Ravel, with the latter’s Bolero rearranged by Tristano himself. After a chance to hear some of Tristano’s own work, he and Ott will close with a spectacular reading of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, arranged for piano duo.
Alone, with a collaborator and with an orchestra, Alice Sara Ott looks to light up London’s classical schedule throughout the first half of 2015. Whichever form you prefer, be sure to catch her.
