ECHO Klassik - Young Artist of the Year Award, 2010

"Impressive playing, well turned, light-fingered and with lovely tone and musicality."
- Classic FM

"Four Stars ... an artist of talent and requisite brio for these scintillating salon pieces."
- Audiophile Audition

"... just out of her teens, she leaves you to marvel at her instinct for Chopin's poetic ambiguity, his alternating melancholy and exuberance, his ultra-Slavonic hope and despair, her playing backed by the sheen of an immaculate technique and pianism."
- Gramophone

Young German-Japanese piano virtuoso Alice Sara Ott celebrated the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth with this award-winning 2010 release, only her second album, recorded when she was just 19. For this recital, Ott has chosen to play from the autograph manuscripts, regarding them as truer than some of the published versions are to the essentially sombre spirit of this music.

"I feel a deep attachment to Chopin’s waltzes. They reflect the whole arc of his composing life and they also reflect his split personality, between Polish and French and his lifelong search for identity. I feel split in a similar way, between Japanese and German. Only in music do I feel completely at home."
- Alice Sara Ott

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
