About

A graceful and charismatic performer, Ingrid Fliter is known for her effortless technique and thoughtful, sensitive music-making; every performance is deeply personal and full of freshness and poetry, perfect for exploring Chopin’s masterful Nocturnes.

Chopin composed his Nocturnes throughout his creative life and succeeded in both elevating and popularizing the form. His inspirational and original style, evident from even his early works, grew and matured to create an epic collection of gorgeously melodic piano music.

Fliter included a tantalizing taster of this new album on her Preludes recording, adding Nocturnes op.9 no.3 and op.27 no.2 to round off the performance, which had several critics hungry for more. Her Preludes album was named ‘Recording of the Month’ by Gramophone, which also named it among the top 10 Chopin performances ever recorded.

On this new recital Fliter delights us with characteristically insightful interpretations which showcase both the sensitivity of her playing and the poetry of the composer’s music.

Ingrid Fliter has established a reputation as a pre-eminent interpreter of Chopin: her recordings of the Preludes and two Piano Concertos attracted extensive critical acclaim. Winner of the Silver Medal in the 2000 International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Fliter was awarded the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, one of only a handful of pianists to have received this honour.

Fliter has appeared at Het Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Suntory Hall, Tokyo, Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, London, Carnegie Hall and Metropolitan Museum, New York, Kölner Philharmonie and Großes Festspielhaus, Salzburg. Festival highlights include La Roque d’Anthéron, the Valldemossa Chopin Festival and the BBC Proms.

“Ingrid Fliter seems to be able to achieve individuality seemingly effortlessly, with cherishable and memorable results.” – Gramophone

“Then there is Fliter’s playing, and what a pure joy it is. Fliter has a natural, utterly compelling feel and flair for this music.” – The Telegraph

“Ingrid Fliter remains an undeniably talented Chopin interpreter.” – Classics Today

Reviews

Fliter certainly understands the essential simplicity underpinning some of the pieces the emotional complexity some of Chopin’s night thoughts. Rather than grouping them by Opus number she’s prepared a journey for us through the nocturnes that’s as rewarding as her playing.  Andrew McGregor
Record Review (BBC Radio 3) 27 October 2018
These Nocturnes rival the very best in the catalogue.
MusicWeb International November 2018
Fliter realises her poetic potential most convincingly... Jed Distler
Gramophone October 2018
[Ingrid Fliter] must be the finest piano talent to come out of Argentina since Martha Argerich, and her Chopin playing has now achieved a level of sculpted perfection that few can match.Fliter does not moon about, but keeps each Nocturne on the move while maintaining an immaculate legato and inner strength. The pieces almost seem to be playing themselves.  Tully Potter
Daily Mail November 2018
