She has made a name for herself through commanding performances of standard piano repertoire, as well as genre-bending, interdisciplinary projects, and inquisitive work with contemporary composers. Faliks is a professor and Head of Piano at UCLA.



A unique program of storytelling through performance and readings of Faliks’ book “Weight in the Fingertips, a Musical Odyssey from Soviet Ukraine to the World Stage.”
