Alice Sara Ott & Francesco Tristano are the pianistic dream team

Pianistic dream team.

Bringing two of the most exciting young pianists to the one stage with a bold and epic program of piano duos seems risky, except that Alice Sara Ott and Francesco Tristano come together as a spectacular tour-de-force, combining wit, technique and harmony to their interpretations of Stravinky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Tristano.

The music they have chosen is bold and big: orchestral epics rendered on two pianos. Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring was transcribed for piano duo by the composer himself. Heard on keyboards, its primal harmonies and rhythms are all the more sinewy and visceral, melodies rendered in high definition – an athletic showpiece for both pianists.

The combination of Alice Sara Ott and Francesco Tristano promises a meeting of strong minds and spectacular music-making that is already generating worldwide buzz.
