About Inna Faliks

“Adventurous and passionate” (The New Yorker) Ukrainian-born American  pianist Inna Faliks has made a name for herself through her commanding  performances of standard piano repertoire,  as well genre-bending  interdisciplinary projects, and inquisitive work with contemporary  composers. After her acclaimed teenage debuts at the Gilmore Festival  and with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, she has performed on many of  the world’s great stages, with numerous orchestras, in solo appearances,  and with conductors such as Leonard Slatkin and Keith Lockhart.  Faliks  is currently Professor of Piano and Head of Piano at UCLA.   Critics  praise her “courage to take risks, expressive intensity and technical  perfection” (General Anzeiger, Bonn), “remarkable insight” (Audiophile  audition) “poetry and panoramic vision” (Washington Post), “riveting  passion, playfulness” (Baltimore Sun) and “signature blend of lithe  grace and raw power” (Lucid Culture.) .  Highlights  of the recent  seasons include performances in Ravinia Festival and the National  Gallery in DC, recital tours of China, with appearances in all the major  halls such as Beijing Center for Performing Arts, Shanghai Oriental  Arts Theater and Tianjin Grand Theater, as well as acclaimed  performances at the Festival Intenacional de Piano in Mexico,  in the  Fazioli Series in Italy and in Israel’s Tel Aviv Museum, at Portland  Piano Festival and with the Camerata Pacifica, with the modern dance  troupe Bodytraffic at the Broad Stage Santa Monica, and Jacaranda Series  in Los Angeles, where she performed Rzewski’s The People United Will  Never Be Defeated. Faliks has been featured on WQXR, WNYC, WFMT and many  international television broadcasts, and has performed in many other  major venues such as Carnegie Hall, Met Museum, Moscow’s Tchaikovsky  hall, etc. She collaborates and premieres music by some of today’s most  important composers such as Billy Childs, Richard Danielpour, Timo  Andres and Clarice Assad. She is known for her poetry-music series  Music/Words, and has collaborated with many important poets. She  regularly tours with her monologue-recital Polonaise-Fantasie, the Story  of a Pianist, which tells the story of her immigration to the United  States from Odessa. This has been recorded on Delos; other acclaimed  recordings include all-Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff/Ravel/Pasternak discs  for MSR Classics. Upcoming recordings include Reimagine Beethoven and  Ravel (9 world premieres) on Parma and the Master and Margarita project,  with three world premieres and Liszt Sonata in b minor, on Sono  Luminus. These programs will be performed nation-wide in 2020-2021.

Faliks is also a writer – her article on China and classical music  was recently published by the Washington Post.  Inna Faliks is a Yamaha  Artist, and is represented by John Gingrich Management.
