The final concert in the series is Polonaise-fantasie, the story of a pianist, Sept. 21, 7:30 p.m. at the Sedona Creative Life Center, featuring Ukranian-born artist Inna Faliks.

Ms. Faliks’s distinguished career has taken her to thousands of recitals and concerti throughout the U.S., Asia, Europe and the Middle East. She is also head of the piano department at UCLA.

Polonaise-fantasie is a unique performance that combines a recital of short piano works from Bach to Chopin to Carter, combined with Ms. Faliks’s autobiographical essays. Her story chronicles her childhood in Odessa, the former Soviet Union, her family’s emigration to America, her seminal early influences and her evolution as an artist. It’s also her love story, as she is reunited as an adult with the childhood friend who is now her husband.

Says Ms. Faliks, “It is my hope that, in sharing this story, I offer audiences a glimpse into the life of a performing musician, as well as into my very personal story – the story that makes me the artist I am today.”
