London Symphony Orchestra/Gianandrea Noseda

Alice Sara Ott

Gianandrea Noseda conducts Shostakovich’s blockbuster 11th symphony – alongside Ravel and a new creation by Louise Drewett. 

War, protest and a nation on the brink. Shostakovich based his massive 11th Symphony on a revolution that failed, and from the roar of the crowd to the thunder of gunfire it never gets any less powerful. But before every storm comes calm. Today, we’ve got the elegance and wit of Ravel’s jazzy piano concerto, and a glowing Devon seascape from the young British composer Louise Drewett.  

Pianist Alice Sara Ott is a one-of-a-kind musician – a performer who can do practically anything, and a thoughtful, imaginative collaborator who loves nothing more than responding to her fellow musicians. She partners with the LSO’s Principal Guest Conductor as he continues his cycle of Shostakovich’s Symphonies.

Part of the Music Academy of the West/ London Symphony Orchestra partnership. The lead sponsors of the partnership are Linda and Michael Keston and Mary Lynn and Warren Staley. Additional support has been provided in remembrance of Léni Fé Bland.
