Boston Debut of Pianist Ingrid Fliter-November 1, 2009
Pianist Ingrid Fliter
In a program of Beethoven Sonata No. 18, Chopin waltzes and Schumann Symphonic Etudes, Opus 13, Ingrid Fliter made her Boston debut under the aegis of Celebrity Series of Boston at Jordan Hall, Sunday, November 1, 2009. Celebrity Series dedicated this performance to the memory of Dr. A. Stone Freedberg, a strong supporter of the organization.
We thoroughly enjoyed the performance of the very talented Ms Filter, who is a highly acclaimed interpreter of Chopin works. She rewarded her appreciative audience with encores of 2 additional Chopin waltzes.
Born in Argentina, Ms Filter began playing public recitals at the age of 11 and made her orchestral debut at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires at the age of 16. She went on to win many international competitions. Only 36 years old, Ms Filter has performed with orchestra and in recital throughout the US, Europe and Asia.
Boston Globe correspondent David Perkins wrote a mostly complimentary review but with a few negative reservations:
However, please note the laudatory comments of readers who disagreed with Mr. Perkins's negative observations:
The program itself says what she wants to be; she did what she set out to do spectacularly well. David's impressionistic criticism is inaccurate, unenlightening, and a bit lazy.
DrAllen is so right. Fliter was inspired and masterful. She used formidable technique to express her personal connection to the music. Martha Argerich and David Gilmore had the wisdom and instinct to support her. This review of the concert is unfair and written without sensitivity to art.
