Improvisations For Theremin And Piano

Carolina Eyck & Christopher Tarnow - Improvisations For Theremin And Piano

Improvisations For Theremin And Piano is the American recording debut of German theremin virtuoso Carolina Eyck with pianist/composer Christopher Tarnow. Eyck began studies at age seven with Russian thereminist Lydia Kavina, a student of Leon Theremin's prot*eacute*g*eacute* Clara Rockmore.

Frustrated with the limitations of her inherited technique, Eyck developed her own method of playing, using a highly modified theremin. She published The Art Of Playing The Theremin, the first extensive and influential method book for the instrument, when she was 17.

Improvisations captures the chemistry and musical intuition of Eyck and Tarnow playing in a completely improvised dialogue, and presents the instrument's most virtuosic performer in an exceptionally candid - and entirely unedited - recording.
