Fliter sprang to international attention after receiving the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award in 2006. Since then, she has performed concerti with some of the world’s top ensembles and is recognized as a pre-eminent performer of Chopin. Her performance launches the Lied Center’s fourth annual Piano Series and will include Chopin’s complete preludes.

Fliter made her American orchestral debut with the Atlanta Symphony just days after the announcement of her Gilmore Award. Since then, she has appeared with the Cleveland and Minnesota Orchestras, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Toronto, National, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Puerto Rico, Utah and Nashville symphonies. She has performed at the Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen, Ravinia, Blossom and Brevard festivals.

In Europe and Asia, Fliter has performed with orchestras and in recital in Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Salzburg, Cologne, and Tokyo and participated in festivals such as La Roque D’Antheron, Prague Autumn and The World Pianist Series in Tokyo.

Fliter began playing public recitals at 11 and made her professional orchestra debut at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires at 16. Already the winner of several Argentine competitions, she went on to win prizes at the Cantu International Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni Competition in Italy and in 2000 was awarded the silver medal at the Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw.

The performance is supported by the Lied Center’s Piano Circle: MarySue Harris, Anabeth H. Cox, Mrs. Laarry H. Lusk, Joan M. Reist, Charlotte Heermann, Judith C. Amber, John and Mary Ann Clinton, and Diana H. Warner.
