Ólafur Arnalds & Alice Sara Ott – The Chopin Project (2015)

The music of Frédéric Chopin has been recorded hundreds of times before. But never like this.
The Chopin Project brings together award-winning young Icelandic pop/classical musician Ólafur Arnalds and the acclaimed German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott for an exciting new take on Chopin’s music.
Always a keen experimenter and innovator, Arnalds has constantly pushed the boundaries of music.
With The Chopin Projecthe not only reworks the beautiful melodies of Chopin but also reimagines the traditional recording style of classical piano music. Ott’s performances were recorded on a variety of pianos in different locations in Reykjavik, using vintage equipment to create a very close-up and intimate texture of sound.
