Happy Birthday, Alice Sarah Ott!

She was born on a day like today, in 1988. At a very early age, while listening to Japanese from her mother, and German from her father, she knew that the best language to communicate is music.

After piano studies (her mother is a pianist), she began winning a variety of classical music piano competitions. But after noticing discomfort and pain, she announced her MS diagnose publicly in 2019.

Known for playing the Rubik’s cube puzzle before each performance, and playing barefoot, I have been following her playing for several years.

Though a very young person, I feel compelled to celebrate her music contribution so far, especially remembering that Jacqueline Du Pré was forced to stop performing at 28, and died at mere 42 years of life, and is yet recognized as one of the absolute greatest cellists to have performed on the instrument.

I celebrate Alice Sarah on her birthday, so that she is known to more listeners, and lives on long, playing or not.
