Ingrid Fliter

Biography

Born: September 23, 1973   Country: Argentina   Period: 20th/21st Centuries
Argentian-born Ingrid Fliter is best known for her incisive interpretations of the piano works of Chopin and Beethoven. Little known until 2006, she has emerged as one of the more prominent pianists on the international scene, with a major recording contract, a half-dozen or so recordings since that year, and a busy schedule of concerts and recitals at major venues across the globe. Fliter has been especially busy in the US making appearances Read more with the major orchestras of Cleveland, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and others. Splitting her residency between New York and Milan, she is also active in the New York area and on the East Coast of the US. She has appeared in concert throughout Europe, the U.K., Japan, and Australia. Her repertory also includes works by Haydn, Mozart, Schumann, Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Ravel, and Bartók. Fliter has recorded for EMI and VAI.

Ingrid Fliter (pronounced FLEE-ter) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on September 23, 1973. She studied piano with Elizabeth Westerkamp and at 16 made her official debut with orchestra playing the Beethoven Third Concerto at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires.

Fliter performed for Martha Argerich later on, and Argerich advised her to continue studies in Europe and allowed the eighteen-year-old to use her home in Geneva, Switzerland. Fliter then had studies at the Freiburg Musikhochschule, where her teachers included Vitaly Margulis. Studies in Rome with Carlo Bruno followed, and then in 1995 Fliter relocated to Imola, Italy where she studied with Boris Petrushansky and Franco Scala at the International Piano Academy Incontri col Maestro.

Fliter captured fourth prize at the 1998 Busoni International Competition in Bolzano, Italy. She went on to win the silver medal in 2000 at the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw. While this was a second-place result, it yielded career benefits far beyond most first-prize finishes.

In January and February 2002 Fliter toured the U.S. with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra under Kazimierz Kord and subsequently appeared at major venues across the globe, unaware she was auditioning for her greatest award.

In 2006 Fliter received that honor when she was named recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Award. Selected from among 450 or so pianists who are secretly observed on tour by the Gilmore judges, she enjoyed a meteoric rise. VAI Audio released three discs that same year, including a collection of Chopin works derived from a live recital in 2003 at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. In 2007 EMI signed her to a contract and BBC Radio chose her to serve for two years as a New Generation Artist, affording concert appearances at major festivals and concert halls throughout the U.K. After a successful Chopin disc in 2008, EMI issued Fliter's higly acclaimed CD of the Chopin complete waltzes in 2009.

Fliter dazzled audiences and critics in Perth with her debut Australian tour in June 2011 with recitals of works by Beethoven and Chopin, and in performances of Mozart's Concerto No. 23 (K. 488) with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra under Vladimir Verbitsky. Read less
