EMI refugee seeks asylum in Scotland

The fabulous Ingrid Fliter, Gilmore Artist of 2006, is one of dozens of artists who were left homeless by the abolition of EMI Classics. Unwanted by the dormant new owners, Warner Classics, and unable to sign to Universal which was forbidden by the EU to take on EMI artists, Ingrid like many others has been searching frantically for a new home.

She’s one of the lucky ones. Linn Records, a boutique label based in Glasgow, has recorded Ingrid in the Chopin concertos with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, conductor Jun Märkl. Watch.

  • Andrea says:

    Linn is likewise lucky to have her! Hope she’ll consider more Haydn and Beethoven sonatas, her interpretations of both are so wonderful.

  • Bang Bang says:

    a very nice personality and the excerpts sounded good- but what distinguishes this recording from the 400 -odd others (474 actually at JPC.de)? good luck.
