Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter has won the admiration and hearts of audiences around the world for her passionate yet thoughtful and sensitive music making played with an effortless technique. In January 2006, Ms. Fliter was named the recipient of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award. Only the fifth pianist to have been so honored, the Gilmore Artist Award is made to an exceptional pianist who, regardless of age or nationality, possesses broad and profound musicianship and charisma and who desires and can sustain a career as a major international concert artist.
Ingrid Fliter made her American orchestra debut with the Atlanta Symphony in that same month, just days after the announcement of her Gilmore Award. Since then she has appeared with the Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the San Francisco, St. Louis, Toronto, Detroit, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Indianapolis and Seattle symphonies among others, as well as at the Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen, Ravinia and Blossom festivals. Equally busy as a recitalist, Ms. Fliter has recently performed in New York at Zankel Hall in Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum and the 92nd Street Y, at Chicago's Orchestra Hall and in Boston, San Francisco, Vancouver, Detroit and Baltimore and for the Van Cliburn Foundation in Fort Worth.
In Europe and Asia, Ms. Fliter has performed with orchestras and in recital in Amsterdam, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Salzburg, Cologne, St. Petersburg and Berlin and participated in festivals such as La Roque D'Antheron, Prague Autumn and The World Pianist Series in Tokyo. Recent engagements abroad include appearances with the Rotterdam, Stockholm, Israel and Royal Liverpool Philharmonics, the BBC Symphony, the Philharmonia in London and the Sydney Symphony; and recitals in Paris, Barcelona, Milan, Tokyo, Sydney and in London at both Wigmore Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall.
During the 11/12 season, Ms. Fliter returns to the National Symphony and Minnesota Orchestra and makes debuts with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Danish Radio, Netherlands Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic and the Orchestre Nationale de Lille; and appears in recital in Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Prague and at Duke University.
Born in Buenos Aires in 1973, Ingrid Fliter began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. In 1992 she moved to Europe where she continued her studies at the Freiburg Musikhochschule fur Musik with Vitaly Margulis, in Rome with Carlos Bruno and with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky at the Academy "Incontrui col Maestro" in Imola, Italy. She has also participated in master classes with Leon Fleisher, Alexander Lonquich, Louis Lortie and Vladimir Bakk.
Ms. Fliter began playing public recitals at the age of eleven and made her professional orchestra debut at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires at the age of 16. Already the winner of several Argentine competitions, she went on to win prizes at the Cantu International Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni Competition in Italy and in 2000 was awarded the silver medal at the Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
An exclusive EMI recording artist, Ms. Fliter's first CD, an all-Chopin disc, was released in April 2008 and followed by a recording of the complete Chopin Waltzes in the fall of 2009. Her most recent EMI recording is an all-Beethoven CD, released in June 2011. Live recordings of Ms. Fliter performing works by Beethoven and Chopin at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam as well as a DVD of a recital at the Miami International Piano Festival are available on the VAI Audio label.
