Clara Rockmore, theremin virtuosa
During my radio show last week I noticed that Art of the Theremin by Clara Rockmore is currently in rotation at WXYC. From Mississippi Records (who reissued the album):
"This LP, originally recorded and released by Delos International in 1977, features the eerily beautiful theremin accompanied by piano (played by Nadia Reisenberg.) A record of stark simplicity and emotional intensity. Mississippi is proud to present the first ever vinyl reissue of this material."
Art of the Theremin was produced by Robert Moog and features Rockmore's sister, Nadia Reisenberg, on piano. It's a beautiful album and I'm really excited to hear it on the radio! (NOTE: If you happened to catch the Inside Track on Monday night, we played this album in its entirety!)
