Born in Buenos Aires in 1973, Ingrid Fliter began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. In 1992 she moved to Europe where she continued her studies with Vitaly Margulis at the Musickhochschule in Freiburg, in Rome with Carlo Bruno and in Imola, at the Academy 'Incontri col Maestro' with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky. She also received advice from Zoltan Kocsis, Louis Lortie, Alexander Lonquich and Alfred Brendel. 

Fliter has established a reputation as one of the preeminent interpreters of Chopin; her two all-Chopin albums on EMI Classics are testament to this. Her recording of Chopin: Complete Waltzes received five-star reviews and was named the Daily Telegraph's 'CD of the Week'. It was also named 'Choice' recording in both Gramophone and Classic FM magazines. Gramophone commented: ‘Ingrid Fliter sets a new benchmark for the complete waltzes. From beginning to end, this is among the finest Chopin recordings of recent years.'

In 2000 Fliter received the Silver Metal at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. Winner of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, one of only a handful of pianists to have received this honour, Fliter now divides her time between Europe and the USA, where she works with orchestras such as the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Her engagements in Europe include the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony, West Australian Symphony, Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherland Philharmonic Orchestra, Danish Royal Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, Hungarian National Philharmonic, Brussels Philharmonic and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic.

In recital, Fliter has performed in many of the great halls across the world: the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Museé d'Orsay, Tokyo's Suntory Hall, Cologne Philharmonie, Salzburg Festspielhaus, Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi, Milan and at London's Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre. In North America she has appeared at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum, in Fort Worth for the Van Cliburn Foundation and in Chicago, San Francisco, Vancouver, Montreal and Santa Barbara. Festival highlights include La Roque D'Antheron, Prague Autumn, Valdemossa Chopin Festival, Cheltenham Festival, City of London Festival and the World Pianist Series in Tokyo. She has also appeared at the Tivoli, Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen and Blossom festivals.
