Mona Asuka Ott press reviews

"The young pianist Mona Asuka Ott impressed all at the Klavierfestival Ruhr in the Schloss Hohenlimburg. [...] Franz Liszt’s Venezia e Napoliand the Rhapsodie espagnole were on the programme - highly virtuosic pieces to which Mona Asuka Ott brought her profound technical accomplishments, taking one’s breath away with the subtlety of her renditions. Her playing was like a roller coaster ride through the octave passages, with a thundering and wild bass register; Mona Asuka Ott was just as convincing with Liszt’s Italian and Spanish sound worlds. And her temperament showed in Chopin’s Polonaise, an heroic encore…In Franz Schubert’s posthumous three piano works D 946 she demonstrated a real sense of pose along with any amounts of sensitivity for the quieter bridges, her tempo unwavering and fitting.”
