if you are liking classical music with a special twist grègoire blanc on youtube is..
i think he is born musician and he is a theremin solist in concertos and playing since a young age.
he doesn't play music, he lets it feel you.
link to his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDMBgt3Hk4cPpUh7w-UBuCQ

ps: we don't have any theremin themed books on librivox, seems to be.
the instrument was invented in 1920 - so maybe there is not much to read...
the google search brings one french audiobook from another site in the non-lv-app

Dork that I am, I have one. It's not that easy to play, but fun.

really?
do you play it often?
:D
it must be so fascinating to play it as a musician...

i heard, it is one of the most difficult instruments because you have just your movements in the air with no reference points but optically/ the view, no notes to play, just the sound in combination with volume or better: you can remember the hand and body positioning.

i doubt i will ever buy one to try it, but it is so stunning to listen to...
at least Grégoire Blanc :) and he plays with half closed eyes most times - unbelievable.

maybe, i will look up some books to host... we should have one in the catalogue.
there must be some books existing in german and in english for sure.
but i think, the bc should be a musician.
and maybe, when there are notes to play in the book... well, amy....
:-D
