Ingrid Fliter: Chopin as an Aphrodisiac

img  Tobias
Maybe this gradual growth has kept Ingrid Fliter an extremely modest and thankful artist, who still feels strong ties to her Argentinian roots. “Chopin: Piano Works”, too, is full of memories of home: “When I started my studies in Argentina I was lucky to be introduced to Chopin’s music very soon and thanks to this I discovered the beauty of piano playing as well as the importance of developing a singing tone on the instrument.”, Ingrid Fliter said, adding that she had always enjoyed the depth of the composer’s oeuvre: “Through the years of my studies I was very touched by discovering his darker side, his sense of tragic, which plays a fundamental role in his music as much as the "joie de vivre" does.”

It will be interesting to see how this CD of Chopin pieces will do in comparison to the other notable Chopin-related “newcomer” on the record market, Raphal Blechacz. In terms of her approach, Ingrid Fliter certainly had an interesting bipolar take on the subject: “Probably a good balance between his romantic soul and his classical expression is one of the most difficult things to achieve while playing his music.”
