Born in Buenos Aires, Ingrid Fliter began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp and, after moving to Europe, continued her studies in Freiburg at the Musikhochschule with Vitaly Margulis, in Rome with Carlo Bruno, and in Imola, at the Academy ‘Incontri col Maestro' with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky. She has also worked with and been mentored by Zoltán Kocsis, Louis Lortie, Alexander Lonquich and Alfred Brendel.

Fliter has established a reputation as a pre-eminent interpreter of Chopin, as her three all-Chopin albums on Linn and EMI Classics bear witness. Her recordings of the piano concertos (with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra) and of the waltzes were selected as ‘Choice' recordings by Gramophone magazine, which commented: ‘Fliter plays with such grace and heartfelt sincerity...by whatever magical means, [she] touches the heart'. The concerto recording was selected as ‘Disc of the Week' by BBC Radio 3's ‘CD Review' and ‘Album of the Week' by Classic FM and her recording of the waltzes was named ‘CD of the Week' by the Daily Telegraph. All three albums received numerous five-star reviews from various publications.

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. She now divides her time between Europe and the USA, where she works with orchestras such as the Cincinnati Symphony, Cleveland, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Minnesota, National Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Seattle Symphony, St Louis Symphony and Toronto Symphony. Fliter has appeared with many European orchestras, including the Philharmonia, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic, Monte Carlo Philharmonic, Netherland Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony, Scottish Chamber, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie and Royal Flemish Philharmonic. She also returns regularly to Australia, where she works with the Sydney Symphony, Melbourne Symphony and West Australian Symphony orchestras.

In recital, Fliter has appeared at many of the great halls and festivals around the world: among them the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam; Suntory Hall, Tokyo; the Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, London; Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Museum, New York; the Cologne Philharmonic Hall; and the Salzburg Festspielhaus. She has also played in Fort Worth for the Van Cliburn Foundation and in Chicago, San Francisco, Montreal and Santa Barbara. Festival highlights include La Roque d'Anthéron, the Valdemossa Chopin Festival, the BBC Proms and the World Pianist Series in Tokyo. Fliter has also appeared at the Tivoli, Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen and Blossom festivals.

BBC Radio 3 ‘Record Review’
Disc of the Week: 'What really works for me is the Mendelssohn G minor Concerto with Fliter exchanging the prettiness of some performances for a more dynamic interpretation. And glittering finger-work that attracts some equally sparkling responses from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Lovely choices of tempo, the whole thing beautifully balanced.'

The Telegraph
5 Stars
'Fliter has the measure of the [Mendelssohn concerto]. The first movement has real fire; the finale bears a cheerful smile and sizzles with vitality; and the central, song-without-words, Andante, is played with heart-stopping tenderness and warmth.'
more >>

BBC Music Magazine
4 Stars
'There's still room for something fresh to be said with this evergreen music…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.'
more >>

Gramophone
'The Mendelssohn concerto suits Fliter particularly well, and she’s alive to the 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…She seizes the music by the scruff of the neck.'


Ming Pao Weekly
'full of energy' (review in Chinese)

Classic FM
Drive Discovery: 'The wait was worth it. She brilliantly tackles Schumann's shifting colours and technical demands head on, not for a moment compromising the work's lyricism. And she brings out all of Mendelssohn's melodic genius while deftly handling all of the work's demands on the virtuoso.'

'Maar toch zijn dit heel persoonlijke interpretaties geworden, waarin Ingrid Fliter het verschil maakt door haar heerlijk vrije pianospel (bij momenten lijkt ze de muziek wel terplekke te improviseren) en door de sprankelende virtuositeit en het jeugdige elan waarmee ze deze concerto’s aanpakt (dit zijn tenslotte jeugdwerken van een 19- en 20-jarige Chopin!).'
