Product description

Product Description

Award-winning pianist Ingrid Fliter makes her Linn debut with a distinctive performance of Chopins notoriously difficult piano concertos, featuring the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Jun Märkl.
Since winning the silver medal at the 2000 Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw, Ingrid has built a reputation as a first-rate Chopin interpreter.
Fliter has previously recorded two all-Chopin discs; her interpretation of the complete Chopin Waltzes received several five star reviews and was named as the Telegraph's CD of the Week and Classic FM Magazine's Editors Choice.
Chopins Piano Concerto No. 1 is a thoughtfully scored composition that allows the piano to shine. The Scottish Chamber Orchestras beautifully delicate playing perfectly highlights Fliters authoritative, yet expressive performance.
Fliter carefully and skilfully showcases the range of tones in Chopins second piano concerto, from the dramatic introductory chords at the opening of the first movement to the sweetly lyrical second movement where the Scottish Chamber Orchestras woodwinds vie for centre stage. Fliter is a breathtaking performer whose performance of Chopins commanding chords and lightening speed runs are effortless.
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.
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.
2014 is the Scottish Chamber Orchestras fortieth anniversary year; Chopin: Piano Concertos is its twenty first recording with Linn.
Conductor Jun Märkl is constantly in demand with the worlds leading orchestras and soloists, having studied with Leonard Bernstein and Seiji Ozawa.

Review

Fliter's beautifully considered accounts of the two Chopin concertos like Beethoven's First and Second,they were published in the wrong order reveal a sensibility of rare emotional refinement and high Romantic instincts.The reverie-like romanze of the E minor and larghetto of the F minor sound dreamily improvisatory here.She has plenty of delicacy for the bel canto flourishes of the opening movements,and muscle for the bravura of the folk-dance finales.Solid accompaniments,too. --Sunday Times

Ingrid Fliter was born to play Chopin with power and passion and is completely at one with the music's demands of agility,vim and vigour,says Geoffrey Norris.Ingrid Fliter,the young Argentine pianist,was born to play Chopin,of whose music she has already released two outstanding CDs for EMI.She will be including the 24 Preludes Op 28 in her Wigmore Hall recital(together with Schubert's A major Sonata D959)on June 4,and on this new Linn disc with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra she gives truly wondrous performances of the two piano concertos.The first thing to catch the ear,however,is Jun Märkl's inspired way of dealing with Chopin's much-maligned orchestration.A chamber ensemble of the calibre and responsiveness of the SCO is the ideal medium in which to appreciate the fact that there is a good deal more subtlety of colour and texture to Chopin's scoring than is generally acknowledged.Märkl,without overemphasising the point,tellingly touches in the timbres of horns and woodwind,at the same time giving the string lines shapely contours together with an enlivening spectrum of dynamics and firmly articulated accents.This lends the orchestral part far more than a mere supporting role and makes it a purposeful contributor to the overall effect.Then there is Fliter's playing,and what a pure joy it is.Power, delicacy,refinement and passion are all there in these two concertos.Chopin wrote them in reverse order to the way in which they were published,so that the F minor No 2 was actually composed before the E minor No 1.Be that as it may,both combine the serenity of his nocturnes with the scintillating gleam of the études,the mercurial drama of the scherzos and the narrative span of the ballades,not to mention the tang of Polish dance types that Chopin embodied in his polonaises,mazurkas and krakowiaks.Fliter has a natural,utterly compelling feel and flair for this music,its suppleness of pulse,its glow,its sparkle,its touching fragility and its forceful impetus.Her playing flows artlessly,with pliability and shading that stem from deep within the expressive requirements of the music rather than from any artificially imposed interpretative ideas.Her lyricism is exquisite,her piano tone luminous.When it comes to the pyrotechnics,she is not only completely at one with the demands of agility,vim and vigour but also possesses the essential quality of impeccable taste to preserve the music's poetic perspective. In all respects,a remarkable disc. --Telegraph

…(Fliter)reveals the qualities that have distinguished her earlier Chopin recordings for EMI:her projection of line,so important in these works,her luminous tone,her assured yet unshowy bravura.The outer movements of both Concertos have an authoritative confidence and are often coloured with beautifully judged dynamic shading,while the slow movements,especially of No.2,are beautifully poised and poetic. --BBC Music Magazine
