    Album information

    Ingrid Fliter is set to thrill her fans with a new recording of piano concertos. The download includes a bonus track: Mendelssohn's Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage.

    Ingrid performs repertoire that is very close to her heart: concertos by two nineteenth century heavyweights, Schumann and Mendelssohn. 

    Ingrid brings the lyrical romanticism of Schumann's iconic Piano Concerto to life whilst perfectly navigating the shifting colours and technical demands of this brilliant showpiece. The sparkling passagework and charming melodies which characterise Mendelssohn's innovative G minor concerto demonstrate Ingrid's innate skill and pianistic instinct. Following Ingrid's live performance of the Mendelssohn concerto one critic wrote: ‘In the beautiful second movement, time stood still.'

    With both composers giving equal focus to soloist and orchestra, the musicality of the SCO's award-winning musicians shines through as they partner Fliter 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.
