|Ingrid Fliter Chopin: Preludes Limited 180gram Vinyl LP
Award-winning pianist Ingrid Fliter performs Chopins Op. 28, a poetic collection of great emotional power and unrivalled artistic quality which demands high virtuosity.
After the overwhelming success of her Linn debut Fliter has proven herself an outstanding Chopin interpreter; Chopin: Piano Concertos was named Disc of the Week by BBC Radio 3 CD Review, Album of the Week by Classic FM, a Choice recording by Gramophone and received many five star reviews.
The pressing is on 180 gram vinyl and is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere.
Chopins preludes achieve something close to perfection of form within the framework of the miniature, and each prelude has its own melodic, harmonic and rhythmic profile.
Fellow pianist and composer Franz Liszt perhaps summed up the appeal of Op.28 best: they are poetic preludes, analogous to those of a great contemporary poet, who cradles the soul in golden dreams
Ingrid Fliter first sprang to international attention when she was awarded the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, one of only a handful of pianists to have received this honour.
Since winning the silver medal at the 2000 Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw, Ingrid has built a reputation as a first-rate Chopin interpreter; The Daily Telegraph describes her as one of the most instinctive and eloquent Chopin interpreters playing today.
Ingrid Fliter was also selected as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist from 2007-2009, working with several of the BBC orchestras under the auspices of this programme.
Ingrid Fliter works with orchestras such as Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
