This week's live concert comes from Sveriges Radio in Stockholm and features the Swedish Radio Symphony conducted by Daniel Harding with pianist Alice Sara Ott in a program of Tchaikovsky, Chopin and Mahler. Ott joins in the Orchestra in the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto Number 1 and then gives an encore of the Chopin Waltz Number 18. After the break, the orchestra plays Mahler's Symphony Number 6. A little something for everybody (well, mostly everybody). A little over 2 hours, the concert is broken up into two parts -Tchaikovsky and Chopin in the player above and the Mahler is on the player below. The announcements are in Swedish, but don't let that stop you - there aren't many of them.
For you purists:
Den tysk-japanska pianisten Alice Sara Ott är 21 år gammal och blev som trettonåring utsedd till mest lovande artist vid "Hamamatsu International Piano Academy Competition", och två år senare vann hon första pris i "Silvio Bengalli International Piano Competition" som den yngsta deltagaren.
Nu turnerar hon världen över och i april/maj följde hon med Sveriges Radios symfoniorkester och Daniel Harding på turné i Tyskland.
