Born in Buenos Aires, Ingrid Fliter began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. She moved to Europe in 1992 where she continued her studies at the Freiburg Hochschule für Musik with Vitaly Margulis, in Rome with Carlo Bruno, and at the Academy “Incontri col Maestro” in Imola with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky. She was a laureate of the Ferruccio Busoni Competition in Italy and was awarded the silver medal at the 2000 Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw. Ms. Fliter was also selected as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist from 2007-2009, during which time she worked with several BBC orchestras. She was presented with the Gilmore Artist Award in 2006.
Ms. Fliter now divides her time between Europe and the US, where she works with many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, including the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra (Minneapolis), National Symphony Orchestra (Washington, DC), San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
Ms. Fliter has performed in recital at The Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Museé d’Orsay (Paris), Suntory Hall (Tokyo), Cologne Philharmony, Grosses Festspielhaus (Salzburg), Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Verdi (Milan), Wigmore Hall (London), and Usher Hall (Edinburgh). In North America she has performed at Carnegie Hall and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and made appearances in Vancouver (BC), Montreal, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Santa Barbara (CA), and Ft. Worth, TX (for the Van Cliburn Foundation). Ms. Fliter also has been a frequent guest artist at summer festivals, including Mostly Mozart (NYC), Grant Park (Chicago), Aspen (CO) and Blossom (Akron, OH).
Ms. Fliter’s two all-Chopin discs on the EMI Classics label are testament to her reputation as one of the pre-eminent interpreters of Chopin. Her recording of the complete Chopin Waltzes received five-star reviews and was named the Daily Telegraph’s “CD of the Week.” It also was selected as “Editor’s Choice” in Gramophone and Classic FM Magazine, with Jeremy Nicolas of Gramophone writing “Ingrid Fliter sets a new benchmark for the complete waltzes. From beginning to end, this is among the finest Chopin recordings of recent years.”
