Inna Faliks - Polonaise-Fantaisie the Story of a Pianist
Polonaise-fantaisie: The Story of a Pianist is the hybrid of a piano recital and an autobiographical monologue by world-renowned pianist Inna Faliks.
The story of this pianist is as harrowing as it is adventurous. Each piece that was selected and played not only complemented her story but also punctuated the drama and emotion of leaving the USSR for a better life in the United States.
“Inna Faliks’ playing long ago convinced me she had universes inside her. Now, in this memoir, we are shown the thousand rooms of a house spread across years and continents, in a style swift, considered & conspiratorial. One wants to remember one’s own life this way.” — Jesse Ball
