Called “adventurous” and “passionate” by The New Yorker and “poetic” by Time Out New York, Ukrainian-born pianist, Inna Faliks, has established herself as one of the most committed, exciting and poetic artists of her generation. “Sound of Verse,” her MSR Classics release of Boris Pasternak, Rachmaninoff and Ravel, garnered rave reviews. Winner of the 2005 Pro Musicis International Award, Ms. Faliks is also a Yamaha artist.

Hailed by the London Times as “a pianist of powerful physical and imaginative muscle,” Tanya Gabrielian combines emotional vulnerability with thoughtful artistry, captivating audiences with her gripping performances. Winner of the 2008 Pro Musicis International Award, Ms. Gabrielian was awarded the 2011 McGraw-Hill Robert Sherman Award for Music Education and Community Outreach.

Emma Tahmiziàn, a Bulgarian pianist of Armenian descent  launched her international career after wining the grand prize at the 1977 Robert Schumann International Competition and went on to win prizes in the Tchaikovsky, Leeds, Van Cliburn, Montreal and Pro Musicis competitions. She has recorded for New World, Koch International, Balkanton, Premier and Concord Classics labels.
