Born in Buenos Aires in 1973, Ingrid Fliter began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. In 1992 she moved to Europe where she continued her studies in Freiburg with Vitaly Margulis, in Rome with Carlos Bruno, and with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky at the Academy "Incontri col Maestro" in Imola, Italy. She made her professional orchestral debut at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires at the age of 16. Already the winner of several competitions in Argentina, she went on to win prizes at the "Città di Cantù" Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in Italy and in 2000 was awarded the silver medal at the Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw.
In June 2013 Ingrid Fliter recorded both Chopin concertos with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra/Jun Märkl for Linn Records, and in June 2014 she recorded the complete Chopin Preludes for the same label. Her two all-Chopin recordings for EMI earned her the reputation as one of the pre-eminent interpreters of that composer, while her most recent EMI recording is an all-Beethoven CD featuring the "Pathétique" and "Appassionata" sonatas. Live recordings of Beethoven and Chopin at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam as well as a DVD of a recital at the Miami International Piano Festival are available on the VAI Audio label. Her most recent recording features the first Mendelssohn and Schumann concertos with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and she records the complete Chopin Nocturnes in November 2017, both for Linn Records.
