Inna Faliks Performs Ljova Premiere

Lani Hall

In celebration of the first UCLA American Jewish Music Festival, the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music commissioned a new work by Ljova to be performed by UCLA's own world-renowned concert pianist, Inna Faliks.  In addition to the Ljova piece, Faliks presents an eclectic program that tells a story of many Jewish contributions to piano repertoire, performing works of additional new Jewish composers Peter Golub and Tamir Hendelman (UCLA faculty, jazz piano), with the works of some of America’s most influential Jewish composers, including George Gershwin, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Arnold Schoenberg.  This program also features students from UCLA's Piano Studio, Bo Feng, Valerie Stern and Brandon Zhou.
