Beautiful Chopin, clear recording

What makes Ott’s Chopin musically valid is that she avoids BANGING the keyboard, there is a graceful lilt, parlor room suave quality, lyrical exploration, excellent fingering and attention to phrasing. Quite tuneful, graceful, serene. No point in the Apples to Oranges comparison thinking. She isn’t Dinu Lipatti, or Pires, nor Rubinstein AD INFINITUM. This is Alice Sara Ott’s interpretation (like it or leave it) of Chopin. She has chosen a tranquil, contemplative mood at the piano. Never rushing tempi, nor overlooking detail. The Waltzes are always under control, colorful, technically assured, involving. There will always be a few versions of Chopin Waltzes in anyone’s collection: historical figures, preferred pianists, recordings of varying quality – but for a pianist who plays light on 2 and 3 and is keen to upper key detail, this recording can fit in anyones collection.
