4 stars '...there's still room for something fresh to be said with this evergreen music...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.' BBC Music Magazine

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.' Classic FM

 

Ingrid  performs repertoire that is very close to her heart: the iconic piano concerto by nineteenth century heavyweight, Robert Schumann. Ingrid brings the lyrical romanticism of the A minor concerto to life whilst perfectly navigating the shifting colours and technical demands of this brilliant showpiece.

Schumann gives equal focus to soloist and orchestra, allowing the musicality of the SCO's award-winning musicians to shine through, as they partner Ingrid perfectly.

This also marks the recording debut of Antonio Méndez, who is fast becoming one of the most exciting conductors of his generation following engagements with a host of international orchestras.

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.'

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.'


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.'
