Since March 20, 2020, Inna has been presenting short informal concerts from her home, dubbed “Corona Fridays.” Here are the 12 installments, thus far, of the video series – written about beautifully in this article on the Ampersand blog. Each episode features music that is newer, older – and words, of some kind – whether poetry that stands on its own, or is part of the piece, as in the case of Veronika Krausas’s “Master and Margarita” Suite.

“Musicians find a way to connect to the given unprecedented moment,” Faliks said. “We all feel that what we are doing is needed, important, wanted in this dramatic and desperate time.”
This episode of my weekly Spring 2020 concerts from my home features many of the poets I have worked with over the years.
This one features a reading of work the founding poet of Music/Words – Jesse Ball.
Program is Beethoven Fantasie op 77, Corigliano Fantasia on an Ostinato and Paganini-Liszt La Campanella.
Inna Faliks live streams piano performances from her home every Friday, PST on FB live and IG live, for the duration of the Covid-19 outbreak. Each livestream includes poetry to echo her Music/Words series, as well as new music, standard repertoire and conversation. Previous installments can be found here.
