Alice Sara Ott: Nightfall
In this solo recital, filmed in Copenhagen's Koncerthuset, pianist Alice Sara Ott presents music by Chopin alongside repertoire from her acclaimed DG album "Nightfall". She begins with two movements from Debussy’s Suite bergamasque – the spacious Prélude and lyrical Clair de lune – and continues with the suitably dreamlike Rêverie. Next come three minimalist works by Debussy's contemporary Erik Satie: the tranquil Gymnopédie No.1 and two of the orientally inflected Gnossiennes. Staying with her "Nightfall" theme, Ott then presents two of Chopin's beautifully expressive Nocturnes, before ending with the pianistic fireworks of his First Ballade.
