Lovely. Just lovely. Legendary party fixture and thereminist (?) Armen Ra elegantly strums the air, as one does when playing the theremin – the only musical instrument that is played without physical contact. Explains Wikipedia: “The instrument’s controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the relative position of the thereminist’s hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other.” The result is a delicate and otherworldly sound, wholly suited to Schubert’s sweetly yearning masterpiece.
