Nowadays the Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25, of Mendelssohn is not the repertory giant it once was, but it's a beautiful fit with the expressive world of pianist Ingrid Fliter. Several factors combine to make this an unusually satisfying Romantic piano concerto offering, but among them is the high-contrast approach of Fliter herself, really capturing the listener's attention. The Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54, contains an episodic feel in Fliter's hands, all within the concerto's intricate form: the opening is strikingly urgent without being loud, the lyrical passages seem to bloom, and the finale broadens out nobly. The Mendelssohn is even more episodic, and here Fliter captures, as few others have, the formally free quality of the work, which inspired listeners of the time to propose elaborate programs for it.

Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Ingrid Fliter is set to thrill her fans with a new recording of piano concertos; eagerly awaited since her acclaimed recording of Chopin 1 & 2, which saw Fliter nominated for a Gramophone Award. Fiter performs repertoire that is very close to her heart: concertos by two nineteenth century heavyweights, Schumann and Mendelssohn. Following Fliter's live performance of the Mendelssohn concerto one critic wrote: 'In the beautiful second movement, time stood still. With both composers giving equal focus to soloist and orchestra, the musicality of the SCO's award-winning musicians shines through as they partner Fliter perfectly.
Avec le Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Ingrid Fliter et Antonio Mendez nous emmènent dans une interprétation chambriste, associant volontiers luminosité, grâce et délicatesse. La virtuosité sans failles de la pianiste est au service du matériau sonore et des nombreuses dynamiques. Schumann and Mendelssohn, the Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter returns us to drive by addressing two masterful works of 19th century. Accompanied by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Antonio Mendez, it starts with the Concerto in A minor by Schumann whose genesis we are well known: dedicated to Ferdinand Hiller and started in 1841 as a Fancy in one movement, the concerto as a whole is published in 1845 by Breitkopf and created by Clara in Leipzig on 1st January.
Linn (F) (SACD) CKD555 (61' DDD/DSD). Ingrid Fliter departs from her beloved Chopin for her latest disc on Linn. As on her Chopin concertos, she is partnered by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, this time with Antonio Mendez at the helm. The Mendelssohn concerto suits Fliter particularly well, and she's alive to the impetuosity of the outer movements, as well as to the work's more poetic elements. Others may be still speedier, not least Jean-Yves Thibaudet in his long-admired recording, but Fliter's command of the drama is second to none. She seizes the music by the scruff of the neck in her very first entry, which has a pleasing muscularity to it, even if Howard Shelley finds greater clarity in the semiquaver passagework that follows.

Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 25, was written in 1830–31, around the same time as his fourth symphony ("Italian"), and premiered in Munich in October 1831. This concerto was composed during a travel in Italy after the composer met a pianist in Munich. He had already written a piano concerto in A minor with string accompaniment (1822) and two concertos with two pianos (1823–24).
