“Inna Faliks, an American pianist of Ukrainian origin, has already won many honors in competitions, given numerous master classes, and taken up residencies in conservatories and universities on three continents. What distinguishes her from other keyboard artists with impressive resumes is a keen perception of the harmonic and physical structure of the music she plays and an unerring ability to convey this to us in terms of emotion, clarity, and style. She puts them over in one irresistible package better than anyone you are likely to encounter. The fact that she is a Yamaha Artist also plays a part, as the beautifully defined registration of her instrument seems to free her to concentrate on matters of interpretation and communication.”

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.
