Classic Arts News   Gilmore Artist Winner Ingrid Fliter Performs in Caramoor Season Finale
Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter will make her first New York appearance since winning the 2006 Gilmore Artist award on August 12, playing Mozart's Piano Concerto in A major with Donald Runnicles and the Orchestra of St. Luke's in the Caramoor Festival season finale. (The program also includes John Adams's Chamber Symphony and Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony.)

Fliter, 32, was announced as the recipient of the prestigious Gilmore award, which carries a $300,000 prize, in January.

She made her debut at the Teatro Col‹n in Buenos Aires at 16. She was a prizewinner in the 1998 Busoni Competition in Bolzano, Italy; she also won the silver medal in the 2000 Chopin Competition in Warsaw.

The Gilmore Artist award, founded in 1989, is presented every four years by the Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival. Candidates, who are not informed that they are being considered, are nominated confidentially and then evaluated by a six-member committee. Age and nationality are not a factor.

Previous recipients of the Gilmore Artist award include Piotr Anderszewski in 2002 and Leif Ove Andsnes in 1998.
