Alice Sara Ott: Nightfall – From our review

In many respects, the topic of the album is challenging for the performer – even more after reading the lines I just quoted from the booklet notes. The listener expects soaring interpretations, able to create overwhelming atmospheres, from an album entitled Nightfall, but Ott is equal to the task. She proves again as a valuable artist because, despite the different inspirations and styles of the works, in each one of them she is able to find colours and shades that create spectacular, atmospheric passages.
