Schubert, Chopin from Gilmore Winner Fliter

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

The Gilmore Keyboard Festival is just getting underway in Kalamazoo, Mich. Dozens of the world's top pianists will play concerts and give classes over the next two weeks. And the star of the show is the winner of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, Ingrid Fliter. Having just pocketed $300,000 for her prize, she joins Fred Child in NPR's Studio 4A to talk about her life growing up in Argentina, and to play Schubert's Impromptu Op. 90, No. 3, and Chopin's Fantasie-Impromptu.
