A graceful and charismatic performer, Fliter is known for her effortless technique and thoughtful, sensitive music-making; every performance is deeply personal and full of freshness and poetry, perfect for exploring Chopin’s masterful Nocturnes.
• Chopin composed his Nocturnes throughout his creative life and succeeded in both elevating and popularizing the form. His inspirational and original style, evident from even his early works, grew and matured to create an epic collection of gorgeously melodic piano music.
• Fliter included a tantalizing taster of this new album on her Preludes recording, adding Nocturnes Op. 9 No. 3 and Op. 27 No. 2 to round off the performance, which had several critics hungry for more.
• Her Preludes album was named ‘Recording of the Month’ by Gramophone, which also named it among the top 10 Chopin performances ever recorded.
• On this new recital Fliter delights us with characteristically insightful interpretations which showcase both the sensitivity of her playing and the poetry of the composer’s music.

“Ingrid Fliter remains an undeniably talented Chopin interpreter.” Classics Today
Fliter differs from most by devising a running order full of intriguing juxtapositions, as did Earl Wild. Such programming savvy makes sense if you plan on listening to all of the Nocturnes in one sitting…There’s no questioning Fliter’s innate affinity for Chopin, as numerous past recordings prove…Paradoxically, [she] realises her poetic potential most convincingly when she plays straight and doesn’t try so hard to interpret. Gramophone
