Alice Sara Ott, piano
She is acclaimed for `the kind of gawp-inducing bravura performance of which legends are made' (The Guardian).
Today she offers a chance to hear the charming, intimate music of Grieg live. The composer is the subject of her recent recording project, Wonderland.
The Lyric Pieces are performed as part of Southbank Centre's year-long focus on the Nordic countries, Nordic Matters. They are steeped in folklore, the echoes of traditional instruments and the distinctive, lively and soulful melodies of Norwegian folk music.
She finishes the recital with Liszt's Sonata in B minor, one of the best-loved and most dramatic works in the romantic piano repertoire, displaying to the utmost the pianist's formidable virtuoso skills.
