Alice Sara Ott:
Echoes of Life

On this album, Alice Sara Ott has interspersed seven contemporary compositions with Chopin’s Preludes. "When I first experimented with this idea, I didn‘t anticipate what this would come to mean to me emotionally, and reveal to me musically. I recall the moment when I heard the entire compilation for the first time and realized that the contemporary works confirm how Chopin’s Preludes are modern, provocative and timeless".

Only a few of Lekeu's piano works have been published, but some have also survived in manuscript form.
