Fliter performs repertoire that is very close to her heart: the iconic piano concerto by nineteenth century heavyweight, Robert Schumann. She brings the lyrical romanticism of the A minor concerto to life whilst perfectly navigating the shifting colours and technical demands of this brilliant showpiece. Schumann gives equal focus to soloist and orchestra, allowing the musicality of the SCO’s award-winning musicians to shine through, as they partner Fliter perfectly.
This also marks the recording debut of Antonio Méndez, who is fast becoming one of the most exciting conductors of his generation following engagements with a host of international orchestras.
