Theremin Thursday for November 25, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow US citizens. Relax after your feasts with a little Mozart this evening.

Video: "The Elvira Madigan Concerto" -- The main theme from the "andante" movement of Mozart's piano concerto #21 in C major (K. 467), this piece was used the Swedish film, ELVIRA MADIGAN (1967), hence its designation as "The Elvira Madigan Concerto". In this video, Peter Pringle plays the theme on the Moog Ethervox.

Theremimage: Our Theremin photo this week is a peek at the Ethervox (not the exact item played by Peter Pringle in this week's video, but similar). There is a very nice write-up on this device over at Note: there are less than 50 of these MIDE-enabled devices in existence!
