The outstanding Argentinean pianist Ingrid Fliter has captivated American audiences since making her stateside debut with the Atlanta Symphony five years ago. Her first concert for Duke Performances features a delectable sample of the Chopin waltzes for which she “set a new benchmark” (Gramophone) in a 2009 recording. Schumann hailed Chopin’s salon music as “waltzes for the soul, not the body;” Fliter draws out their rhythmic zest and glittering chic with impeccable timing. Another of her specialties, Beethoven, rounds out a stylish program from a Gilmore Artist Award winner who plays with fire but is “incapable of grandstanding” (Chicago Sun-Times).
