The Art of the Theremin

Clara Rockmore - CD - Rating: 9/10

This CD came as part of my Theremin kit I ordered from Big Briar back in the 90s. Just holding a single note is hard enough on a Theremin, Clara Rockmore manages to control the instrument like a violin. These are all classical pieces performed with only a piano as accompaniment. The overall feeling of the music is somber and not at all like the sci-fi buzzing you normally hear from Theremin playing.
