The Hollywood Trio

The Hollywood Piano Trio

Inna Faliks, piano
Roberto Cani, violin
Eric Byers, cello

The Hollywood Piano Trio’s passionate and commanding interpretations of the standard piano trio repertoire are invigorated by their interest in Los Angeles based composers, those who immigrated to LA, and those whose musical life led them to a career in film.The trio was formed in 2018 and is comprised of three of LA’s most outstanding musicians. Each of the three have distinguished careers as concerto soloists, recitalists, chamber musicians and have appeared with major orchestras and music festivals throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. They occupy key positions in LA’s musical landscape, and each performer brings their unique, multifaceted international experience and their vibrant personalities to the medium.

Recent performances for the newly formed group include a concert for the Milken Center for Music of  American Jewish Experience, concerts for the Memphis Chamber Music Society, St James Great Music, LACMA Sundays Live, South Bay Concert Series, and many others. Upcoming projects include an all-Beethoven trio recording as well recording the trios of Robert and Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn and Erich Wolfgang Korngold.
