Tina Faigen

Dr. Tina Faigen is a concert pianist, recording artist, teacher, and editor. In addition to performing as a recitalist and chamber musician, she has been engaged as guest soloist with orchestras in the United States and Europe, including the Pittsburgh Symphony at the age of 13. Music critics have described her as “commanding a rich palette of pianistic colors and fingers of awesome dexterity,” and as having “a compelling combination of solid technique and distinctive interpretation, full of color and nuance, with her virtuosity the servant of the music. A stunning performer who plays with assurance, fluidity and power.”

Faigen has maintained an active private teaching studio since she was 14 and continues to guide students of all ages and levels of ability. In 1992, she carried her expertise into the field of music editing, serving as the principal music editor for The Robert Schultz Piano Library, which includes editions of standard classical repertoire and Schultz’s original works, arrangements, and piano transcriptions. Faigen’s compact disc recordings of Schultz’s works—Visions of Dunbar and Tina Faigen Plays Piano Transcriptions—have received rave reviews. “Faigen plays Schultz’s works superlatively, effortlessly clarifying their rippling complexities and performing with supple dexterity, a clear, resonant tone and sensitive touch.”

Faigen holds three degrees in piano performance. She earned her Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees from the University of Miami, and her Bachelor of Music degree from Oberlin College Conservatory of Music.
