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..... 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....
