In January 2006, Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter was named the recipient of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award and later that same year, she replaced Martha Argerich for concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Born in Buenos Aires in 1973, she began playing public recitals at the age of 11 and made her professional orchestra debut at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires at the age of 16. Fliter went on to win first prize at the Ferruccio Busoni Competition in Italy and in 2000, she was awarded the silver medal at the Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
Fliter has performed with orchestras and in recital at many of the major concert halls worldwide and has participated in several of “The World Pianist Series” in Tokyo with such renowned pianists as Brendel, Pollini and Argerich. She was chosen to participate in London’s BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists project, a program for young musicians who are beginning to make an impact on the international music scene. She recently signed to record exclusively for EMI Classics.
