Unholy Secrets of the Theremin - an electro-hit!

On Saturday, August 27, I was lucky enough to catch the last performance of Unholy Secrets of the Theremin, by Kip Rosser and Jef Anderson. This is a wonderfully thoughtful, humorous, musical performance of Theremin and Piano with dramatic dialog. It was a spellbinding experience. I wish everyone who loves eccentric genius and electronic music could have seen this show; it was very exciting.

Kip Rosser performed on Theremin at electro-music 2005. He is an outstanding Theremin player. Jef Anderson is an superb pianist. They performed 11 pieces for Theremin and piano. In between there was some pretty clever mind-bending dialog. The pieces they played were:

    Funerailles
    Franz Liszt

    Bailero
    Joseph Canteloube

    Get Together Weather
    Music: Frederick Hollander
    Lyrics: Dr. Seuss

    Eleanor Rigby
    John Lennon - Paul McCartney

    My Man's Gone Now
    George Gershwin

    Lo Que Vendra
    Astor Piazzolla

    Adagietto
    Gustav Mahler

    Nessun Dorma
    Giacomo Puccini

    Le Gitan et la Fille
    Jo Moustaki

    Theme from Star Trek
    Alexander Courage

    L'Antoueno
    Joseph Canteloube


With their dialog, Rosser and Anderson told the fascinating story of Leon Theremin. Theremin lived a brilliant but tortured life. He was a creative engineering genius trapped in the twisted communist system, always on a short leash and just one step away from elimination by Stalin's regime. The dialog very cleverly tells this twisted story with humor, absurdity and profundity. While the invention of the Theremin is presented, it is just one of many facinating aspects to Theremin's life.

There were striking costumes and even a delightful choreography. It was good music and great fun. The audience responded enthusiastically.

Congratulations Kip and Jef. Good show. I loved it...
