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 in Imola, Italy. 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 competitions in Argentina, she went on to win prizes at the Cantù International Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni Competition and in 2000 was awarded the silver medal at the Frédéric Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
She has been teaching at the Imola International Academy since the fall of 2015. Ingrid 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 most of the major North American orchestras. Equally busy as a recitalist, Ms. Fliter has performed in New York at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, the Metropolitan Museum and in many other mayor US cities and venues, as well as for the Van Cliburn Foundation in Fort Worth. In Europe and Asia, Ms. Fliter has performed with orchestras and in recital in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Salzburg, Cologne and Tokyo, and participated in important festivals all over Europe. Ms. Fliter has recorded both Chopin concertos with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra/Jun Maerkl for Linn Records as well as the complete Chopin Preludes for the same label. Her two all-Chopin recordings for EMI earned her the reputation as one of the pre-eminent interpreters of that composer while her most recent EMI recording is an all-Beethoven CD.
