Ukrainian-born American pianist Inna Faliks is a passionately committed artist who has made a name for herself through her commanding performances of standard piano repertoire, genre-bending interdisciplinary projects, and inquisitive work with contemporary composers. On her latest recording, Faliks juxtaposes two large scale works by Clara Schumann (née Wieck) and Robert Schumann. In this first volume of her Schumann Project, Falik says her aim is to “simply unite, on each album, two or more works by kindred souls. Offering Robert’s and Clara’s music together on the same program is not only a tribute to their musical voices but also to love and partnership in its many forms and with all its complexities, pains, and joys.”
