COLORADO SYMPHONY ANNOUNCES PIANIST CHANGE FOR CHOPIN PIANO CONCERTO NO. 2
Pianist Fabio Bidini replaces Ingrid Fliter for February 7-9 performances at Boettcher Concert Hall

Jan. 2, 2020 – Denver, CO – The Colorado Symphony has announced a pianist change for their February 7-9 performance of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2. It is with great regret that pianist Ingrid Fliter has withdrawn from her upcoming Colorado Symphony performances on the advice of her doctors who have recommended that she not fly during her pregnancy.

Replacing Ms. Fliter will be Fabio Bidini, recognized worldwide as one of the most important pianists and pedagogues. Bernard Holland of the New York Times stated: “He is capable of an admirable simplicity…truly touching.”

His outstanding piano playing that combines technical wizardry with poetic lyricism and his fascinating culture of the attack of the keyboard brought him to have a glowing London debut in the Barbican Center with the London Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Michael Tilson Thomas in the presence of Sir Georg Solti. Shortly after, he performed at the United Nation as a soloist of the BBC Wales and had his highly acclaimed North American debut with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under Joel Levi.

Since then Mr. Bidini has been a frequent guest of the most prominent orchestras worldwide (San Francisco Sympony, Dallas Symphony, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, The Philharmonia Orchestra of London, BBC Orchestra Wales) playing in the world´s most famous concert halls (Carnegie Hall, Kimmel Center Philadelphia, Kennedy-Center Washington, Royal Festival Hall, Davies Hall, Tonhalle Zürich, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Rudolfinum, Auditorio Nacionál-Madrid, Auditorio de Zaragoza, Muziekgebouw Amsterdam, among others).
