Inna Faliks, Olga Livshin
Music/Words is a unique interdisciplinary series created and curated by pianist Inna Faliks. It explores connections between literature and music by presenting collaborations between solo performers and writers in the form of a live recital/reading. New published and unpublished works will be read alongside performances of music old and new on a beautiful Grotrian concert grand. Spontaneity and preparation, improvisation and premeditation, printed text and interpreting the score, atmosphere and color in words and music, coincidence and careful planning - these and other topics will serve as themes for every inspired evening in the cozy Ico Gallery, in the heart of TriBeCa.
Olga Livshin and Inna Faliks both were born and raised in Odessa, a port city on the Black Sea, in the former Soviet Union. Their paths are different yet similar. Coincidences, connections, childhood experiences and imagination connect the two artists as music of Schumann and Livshin's lively, passionate poems are combined.
