Notes and Editorial Reviews

In both the Mendelssohn and Schumann, Fliter plays with tautness and energy, fitting hand-in-glove with the smaller chamber-orchestra forces of the SCO and drier recorded sound. Heartfelt and intelligent, this is life-enhancing music, and as a bonus there's The Fair Melusina Overture.

– BBC Music Magazine

A beautiful fit with the expressive world of pianist Ingrid Fliter. Several factors combine to make this an unusually satisfying Romantic piano concerto offering, but among them is the high-contrast approach of Fliter herself, really capturing the listener's attention. A standout recording.

– All Music Guide

The Mendelssohn concerto suits Fliter particularly well; she alive to the
Read more impetuosity of the outer movements, as well as to the work's more poetic elements. Fliter's command of the drama is second to none.
