The Fourth Annual Distinguished Alumni Concert features pianist Inna Faliks in an imaginative concert program that explores the connection between words and music. To spotlight her recent all-Beethoven CD, Faliks performs the composer's Fantasia in G Minor, Op. 77; Polonaise in C Major, Op. 89; and Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, Op. 111.

Chicago's Peter Van de Graaff, chief announcer on WFMT/98.7FM, reads poetry by Goethe and Schiller between the piano works.


ABOUT THE ARTISTS

After studying at the Music Institute with Emilio del Rosario, Inna Faliks worked with such towering figures as Leon Fleisher, Ann Schein, and Gilbert Kalish, eventually earning a doctor of musical arts degree from Stony Brook University in New York. She has performed in some of the world's most distinguished venues, including Carnegie Hall's Weill Concert Hall, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, Paris' Salle Cortot, Chicago's Symphony Center, and many more. Critics have described her as "a soloist in total command of her instrument" and "a concert pianist of the highest order." This year, she joined the prestigious faculty of UCLA as a tenured associate professor of piano.


Peter van de Graaff joined the Beethoven Satellite Network in February 1989 after a year as one of the staff announcers on WFMT. He serves as overnight host on WFMT, a program heard on many radio stations across the United States. As a professional singer, he has performed with opera companies and orchestras throughout the world, including the Czech State Orchestra, and with the New Orleans, Utah, Colorado Springs, and San Antonio Symphonies. He also serves as host of the live Lyric Opera of Chicago broadcasts.
