Polonaise-fantaisie: The Story of a Pianist
Inna Faliks, piano
Rebecca Mozo, narrator
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.
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.
