Catalog no.: MR0000050

Item ID: 335916

Official reissue of the 1977 album of Clara Rockmore's stunning
theremin performances of various classical compositions,
accompanied by her sister Nadia Reisenberg on piano. Includes
gorgeous interpretations of pieces by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Ravel and more. An all time classic classical album, finally back in print. Rockmore was a violin child prodigy with training at the Imperial Conservatory in St. Petersberg. A refugee of the Russian Revolution, she arrived in New York with her family in 1921, and soon after met Professor Lev Sergeyevich Termen, inventor of the remarkable theremin, one of the first electronic instruments in existence. Rockmore stunned crowds by playing music both highly technical and emotionally intense, all without ever touching her instrument.
Her work represented the cutting edge of electronic music, inspiring a generation of innovators (including Bob Moog, who co-produced this record). On her custom built theremin, Rockmore channeled deep human emotion through an electronic device for the first time. 160 gram vinyl comes in old school tip-on jacket and includes a reproduction of the original Delos gatefold artwork as a double sided 12x24 poster. Carefully remastered by Timothy Stollenwerk. Licensed from Delos International and the Nadia Reisenberg/Clara Rockmore
Foundation.

Also available: THE LOST THEREMIN ALBUM (LP), THEREMIN (IT) (LP).
