Reimagine: Beethoven and Ravel
“[Works by Prestini, Andres, and Childs] provide some windows into Faliks’ technical virtuosity, … [highlighting] her interpretive, lyrical playing well. This ample collection of pieces gives listeners a good appreciation of her skills.
Faliks performances are solid here and the works make extensive exploration of the rich sound of the piano which is captured well in this release. These re-imaginings make a fine introduction to Faliks’ programming approaches and the Beethoven performances should stand well against any others.”
