Even though Fliter is more comfortable with the impressionistic territory of Chopin, the Argentinean pianist approaches these three monumental, turbulent sonatas -- the so-called "Pathetique," "Appassionata" and "Tempest" -- with due reverence and moments of bristling intensity. The dynamic demands of the material aren't her strong suit (somehow she sounds as if she's shrugging through the famously emotional Adagio movement of the C minor), but the power she exhibits on the final movement of the "Pathetique" shows promise.
