Inna Faliks is a spellbinding Ukrainian-born pianist with a glowing international reputation. Her long-standing practice of alternating musical interludes with the spoken word takes the form here of narrative storytelling. And with this unique CD – her first for Delos – Inna has a captivating, powerful and very moving tale to tell.

Her story chronicles her life’s path: her family’s emigration to America, her seminal early influences and her evolution as an artist. And it’s also her love story, as she is reunited as an adult with the childhood friend who is now her husband.

Each episode of the pianist’s saga – dramatically narrated by actress Rebecca Mozo – alternates with a beautifully played masterpiece that is closely connected to her life story from childhood onward. Music and words combine to spin a
powerful and moving tale.

“A concert pianist of the highest order, Inna Faliks can be as dramatic or as subtle as a great stage actor.” – Marc Vitali, WTTW radio
