Notes and Editorial Reviews

Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter (pronounced fleet-er) was born in Buenos Aires in 1973. She began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. In 1992 she continued her studies with Vitalj Margulis in the Musikhochschule fur Musik in Freiburg, Germany, and in 1994 in Rome with Carlo Bruno. In 1996 she studied in the Academy 'Incontrí col Maestro' in Imola under the leadership of Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky. Currently she is studying the fortepiano at the Imola Academy. She has also particapted in masterclasses held by A. Jasinsky, A. Longquich, L. Lortie, L. Fleischer, V. Bakk, among others. In Argentina she was awarded First Prize in many National Competitions which allowed her to make her Orchestra debut in the Read more 'Colon Theatre' at the age of 16. In 1994 she won First Prize in both categories (Classic and Romantic) and the special prize in the International Competition for Piano and Orchestra 'Citta di Cantu' in Italy, and in 1988 she was the prize winner of the 'Ferruccio Busoni' Competition in Bolzano, Italy. In 2000, she was awarded second prize and the Silver Medal at the Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. Her intensive concert activity includes appearances at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Suntory Hall, Tokyo, Kennedy Centre, Washington, Lincoln Centre, New York, National Gallery of Washington, Liszt Conservatory Hall, Budapest, and the Conservatorio G. Verdi, Milan, to name a few. In has been awarded the 2nd Prize and Silver Medal in the 2000 International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. On Monday, January 16, 2006, Ingrid Fliter was anointed the 2006 Gilmore Artist, the fifth since the grant was established in 1991. The Gilmore is not a competition but a grant bestowed upon a pianist who has piqued the interest of the Gilmore search committee, and is by far the richest and most generous with its cash award of 300,000 for career furtherance. With Ingrid Fliter, the Gilmore has made an inspired choice. The most trenchant appraisal of her artistry came from the music critic of The Washington Post who wrote: 'A mature artist in complete command of her instrument. She made the music sound as though it were being born under her fingers.' He really nailed it, for it is the spontaneity of her playing, the personality without excess, and the sheer joy of her music-making that sets Ingrid Fliter apart from her contemporaries. VAI is proud to launch Ms. Fliter's discography with two CDs recorded live at Amsterdam's splendid Concertgebouw concert hall in 2003 and 2005. One is an all-Chopin recital; the other a recital including works of Beethoven and Chopin. Read less
