About The Artist

As if making the very air “sing” with good vibrations, Thorwald Jørgensen will electrify with the lyricism of the theremin in Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise and Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras. He will also bring the world premiere of Lera Auerbach’s Ten Preludes for theremin and piano.
