German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott explores the world of mountain trolls and elves, hills and fjords conjured by Edvard Grieg's Lyric Pieces and Peer Gynt Suites, the latter presented here in versions for solo piano. The album also includes a live recording of the composer's famous Piano Concerto, featuring the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and multiple award-winning conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen. Ott has always been captivated by the wonderland Grieg created and the fairy tale characters that inhabit his miniatures.

"This album represents my own very personal journey through Grieg’s wonderland. I should like to take this opportunity to invite you to leave behind your everyday lives for a moment and enter Edvard Grieg’s magical and imaginary world with me. Without our really noticing it, we are taken on a journey into a daydream, a wonderland from which we return only reluctantly to our own everyday reality."
- 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!
