'No. 9 in the Top 20 Classical Albums of 2014' Amazon.co.uk   

'Album of the Week': '...a first-rate Chopin interpreter... it's a breathtaking performance.' Classic FM Radio 

'This is very much Chopin playing in the great tradition: rich-toned, generous though never profligate with its rubato, and invested with a vast range of keyboard colour.' The Guardian

'In spite of considerable competition on record in these two concertos Ingrid Fliter's spellbinding and refreshing accounts of both works can be confidently recommended.' SA-CD.net


Since winning the silver medal at the 2000 Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw, Ingrid has built a reputation as a first-rate Chopin interpreter.  Fliter has previously recorded two all-Chopin discs; her interpretation of the complete Chopin Waltzes received several five star reviews and was named as the Telegraph's ‘CD of the Week' and Classic FM Magazine's ‘Editors Choice'.

Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 is a thoughtfully scored composition that allows the piano to shine.  The Scottish Chamber Orchestra's beautifully delicate playing perfectly highlights Fliter's authoritative, yet expressive performance. 

Fliter carefully and skilfully showcases the range of tones in Chopin's second piano concerto, from the dramatic introductory chords at the opening of the first movement to the sweetly lyrical second movement where the Scottish Chamber Orchestra's woodwinds vie for centre stage. Fliter is a breathtaking performer whose performance of Chopin's commanding chords and lightening speed runs are effortless.

2014 is the Scottish Chamber Orchestra's fortieth anniversary year; ‘Chopin: Piano Concertos' is its twenty first recording with Linn.

'Ein reicher Ton – niemals dominant oder überzogen, eher elegant und transparent – kennzeichnet ihr Spiel...Und so gestaltet sie bezaubernd lyrische momente in der Musik.'

Pizzicato
4 Stars
'Fliter is an outstanding performer in both of Chopin’s Concertos, and her sonorous though also poetic playing is complemented by a very transparent [and] rhetoric orchestral sound.'
more >>

The Guardian
'Fliter's excitingly grand, more "old-fashioned" playing is perfectly etched against alert orchestral accompaniments from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.'


Classical Ear
5 Stars
'Fliter has the strength that allows her the utmost refinement...With the always excellent SCO, ex-EMI producer John Fraser in charge, and impeccable Linn sound in Edinburgh's Usher Hall, this should certainly be snapped up.'

Classics Today (France)
4½ Stars
'Oui, il y a des digressions rêveuses dans le 1er volet du 2e Concerto, mais elles ne sont pas doucereuses. On en vient donc à remarquer davantage les qualités de Fliter, notamment son jeu perlé et le vrai contrôle du son.'

Klara
4 Stars
'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!).'
