Inga Fiolia Makes U.S. Debut at Lincoln Center Recital
German-Georgian pianist Inga Fiolia will make her U.S. debut in a recital at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center on Monday, April 29, 2019, at 7 p.m. She will perform works by Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Glinka, Rachmaninov and Tsintsadse.
Ms. Fiolia, a recipient of the Solti Award and German Piano Magazine's Piano News Prize, has made recent solo debut appearances at prestigious venues such as London's St. Martin in the Fields, the Allerheilige Hofkirche in Munich, Schloss Mirabell in Salzburg, and Hamamatsu Philharmonic Hall in Tokyo.
Her recent discography includes two recordings of Mikhail Glinka's complete piano works: "Piano Variations" (2017), and "Dances" (2018), on Naxos' Grand Piano label. Her latest recording, 24 Preludes by Georgian composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze, has just been released (2019).
Since giving her first performance with an orchestra at the age of seven, she has shown a phenomenal ability as a soloist, accompanist and interpreter of a wide variety of styles, from Baroque to 21st century compositions.
Her father Geno Fiolia, composer and an Honored Artist of Georgia, was a bandleader of the legendary bands Orera and Dielo in the former USSR. He knew Tstintsadze personally when they were both members of the Georgian Composers' Union.
