Ingrid Fliter performs Chopin’s Op. 28, a poetic collection of great emotional power and unrivalled artistic quality demanding the highest level of virtuosity. Ms. Fliter has proven herself an outstanding Chopin interpreter; ‘Chopin: Piano Concertos’ was named ‘Disc of the Week’ by BBC Radio 3 ‘CD Review’; ‘Album of the Week’ by Classic FM; a ‘Choice’ recording by Gramophone as well as many five star reviews. Ingrid Fliter first sprang to international attention when she was awarded the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, one of only a handful of pianists to have received this honor. Since winning the silver medal at the 2000 Frederic ChopinRead more Competition in Warsaw, Ingrid has built a reputation as a first-rate Chopin interpreter; The Daily Telegraph describes her as ‘one of the most instinctive and eloquent Chopin interpreters playing today.’
Fliter seems to be able to achieve individuality seemingly effortlessly, with cherishable and memorable results. She is a virtuoso of the first order but she holds this in reserve, so when she does unleash her full technical armoury, it's extraordinarily potent. The recording captures well Fliter's innate beauty of sound, encompassing the dynamic range with ease. A gem of a disc.
