180-gram gatefold double LP

For her 10th Deutsche Grammophon release, pianist Alice Sara Ott returns to the music of Frederic Chopin. She approaches his 24 Preludes op. 28 from a fresh perspective, finding a personal thread that parallels the music's dramatic arc and wide-ranging moods.

The pianist frames the Preludes within a contemporary context by interspersing them with seven works by 20th- and 21st-century composers. Echoes Of Life is the thought-provoking yet emotionally and musically fulfilling end result.
