Fliter was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She began her piano studies in her native Argentina with a teacher named Elizabeth Westerkamp, and by the time she was 11-years-old, Fliter began playing public recitals. Fliter made her professional orchestra debut at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires when she was 16. In 2006, Fliter joined only a handful of pianists and became the only woman to receive the Gilmore Artist Award.
For the first half of her USD concert, Fliter played two pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven. She played Sonata No. 17 in D minor “The Tempest” and Sonata No. 18, Op. 31 No. 3 “The Hunt,” which are both multi-movement pieces. For the second half of her concert, Fliter played Frederic Chopins 24 Preludes, Op. 28. This piece consisted of 24 movements that were each a couple minutes long and included all major and minor scales.
Emily Gillespie, a first-year business major, said she attended the concert because she likes music. She said she enjoyed watching Fliter play.
“She was just a really good piano player and put a lot of soul into it,” Gillespie said.
Austin Herrboldt, a sophomore music education major, said liked how Fliter “seemed so assertive and confident in herself” and said he was surprised by how much she had memorized. Herrboldt said his favorite part of the concert was the Chopin section. Fliter won second place in 2000 at the Frederic Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
“We are very, very proud of being able to bring such a strong artist to our program,” said assistant professor of piano Alessandra Feris.
Fliter also held a piano masterclass Tuesday morning.
