Μιλώντας πάντα για πρωτοπόρους των ηλεκτρονικών, συναντάμε τον Ρώσο Leon Theremin, εφευρέτη του ομώνυμου μουσικού οργάνου – χρονολογία κατάθεσης πατέντας το 1928.
Η Λιθουανή Clara Rockmore που ακούμε στην μεταγραφή για Θερεμίνη της Vocalise [Rachmaninoff], εκπαιδεύτηκε από τον ίδιο τον εφευρέτη, με τον οποίο είχε μακροχρόνια συνεργασία. [Εικόνα : L. Theremin, C. Rockmore]

Always talking about pioneers of electronics, we meet the Russian Leon Theremin, inventor of the musical instrument named after him – year of patent filing : 1928.
The Lithuanian Clara Rockmore, whom we hear on the Theremin version of [Rachmaninoff’s] Vocalise was trained by the inventor himself, with whom she had a decades-long partnership. [Picture : L. Theremin, C. Rockmore]
