Ingrid Fliter sprang to international attention after receiving the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award in 2006. Since then, she has performed concerti with the world’s top ensembles and is recognized as a preeminent performer of Chopin. Her Lied debut on Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. launches the Lied Center’s fourth annual Piano Series and is accented with a performance of Chopin’s complete preludes.

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. Winner of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, one of only a handful of pianists and the only woman to have received this honor, Fliter divides her time between North America and Europe.

Fliter made her American orchestral debut with the Atlanta Symphony, just days after the announcement of her Gilmore Award. Since then she has appeared with the Cleveland and Minnesota Orchestras, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Toronto, National, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Puerto Rico, Utah and Nashville symphonies among others, as well as at the Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen, Ravinia, Blossom and Brevard festivals. Equally busy as a recitalist, Fliter has performed in New York at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, the Metropolitan Museum and the 92nd Street Y, at Chicago’s Orchestra Hall, and in Boston, San Francisco, Vancouver and Detroit as well as for the Van Cliburn Foundation in Fort Worth.

In Europe and Asia, Fliter has performed with orchestras and in recital in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Salzburg, Cologne, and Tokyo 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, Israel, Hong Kong, Monte Carlo, Osaka, Helsinki and Royal Stockholm Philharmonics, the BBC Symphony in London, Sydney Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra; as well as recitals in Paris, Barcelona, Milan, Prague, Tokyo, Sydney and in London at both Wigmore Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall.

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 in Freiburg with Vitaly Margulis, in Rome with Carlos Bruno and with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky at the Academy “Incontrui col Maestro” in Imola, Italy. 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.
