Chopin: Piano Concertos 1 & 2 ~ Ingrid Fliter
6 of 7 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely superb, 18 April 2014
I am fairly new to classical music and started listening to Classic FM a couple of years ago. I have listened to many great Classical CDs but this tops the lot by a country mile. Ingrid Fliter's piano playing on the disc is breathtaking. The album is dramatic yet also relaxing particularly track 2. Ingrid and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra compliment each other superbly. I first became aware of Chopin's music listening to Ji Liu's album however, although very good, this album by Ingrid is miles better. If I could give this album a higher rating than 5/5 then I would !!! Very highly recommended and definitely one of, if not my favourite albums of 2014.

As usual, Amazon is both excellent and reliable. This album is yet another masterpiece from Nicola at such a young age ( 18 !!! ). I first heard tracks from this album on the superb Classic FM. I particularly like the Mendelssohn material although all tracks are excellent and her playing of the violin is both dramatic and soothing. I'm gutted that I can't see Nicola live in September as I will be on holiday however, I have tickets to see her at another venue in May. I cannot wait !

Another superb album from Nicola and is as good if not better than Italia ( which ia a great album ). Nicola again excels on the violin and the Mahler piece is my favourite. If Nicola is in concert in London, I will jump at the chance of seeing her live.
