Format: Audio CD
When releasing a disc with two multi-recorded concertos like the Tchaikovsky and Liszt First Piano Concertos, a young artist is taking huge risks. The Deutsche Grammophon label or not behind you, when you have to face the competition of a Horowitz, Gilels, Richter, Weissenberg, Argerich and so many other giants and lesser gods for Tchaikovsky, and again Richter, Janis, Zimerman, Argerich, among others for Liszt, you have to know what you are doing. But then again, 22-year old Alice Sara Ott has been a pleasantly surprising artist who seems to know where she's going, as could be experienced from her miraculous take on the Chopin Waltzes and her equally brilliant Lizst Etudes d'exécution transcendante.

And here again, Alice Sara Ott surprises in the most felicitous manner by giving us a recording that proves fascinating from start to end. Tired of hearing Tchaikovsky's 1st piano concerto? Nothing more to say about it? It's mega-popular so it's boring, right? Well, not exactly. Alice Sara Ott with her poised youthful enthusiasm and controlled abandon might be the perfect antidote against such feelings. From the ravishingly phrased opening, which for once doesn't slap you in the face, you realize she is inviting us for a thoroughly enjoyable ride, which promises to shed a refreshing light at about every corner or stop on a work deemed oh so familiar. And promise is kept. Listening to her Tchaikovsky was indeed like visiting an old friend who all of the sudden appeared much younger, brighter and more enchanting than one ever imagined.

Ms. Ott calls Tchaikovsky's piano concert in B flat minor "revolutionary" and she makes us hear and understand why. It's more than just the formal experimentation of the piece which she rightly emphasizes in the liner notes.

I cannot add more to what Mr. Marc Haegeman has said.

I have listened to Tchaikovsky's several times but when listening to this performance I was amazed at the new feelings the same music can raise when played with the magic Alice Sara Ott displays here. Fantastic performance and fantastic recording!

Liszt concerto is equally magic and her great interpretation makes me include her Etudes in my wish list.

Be careful, Miss Ott, because I'll be watching you. Please more!
