sometimes finding stuff on the internet is a bad logic string.

I was looking at an NPR piece because Sharon Isbin had contributed a blueberry and mango pie recipe, complete with pie crust recipe, to a Thanksgiving show. I looked her up on wikipedia and noticed that she studied with Rosalyn Tureck, whose wiki bio notes that she made her Carnegie Hall debut playing a theremin.

Theremin. Like the thing this dood is playing.

Barring some flatness, he's pretty awesome compared to the other youtube offerings, which all suffer from interesting notions of pitch. Could you imagine what someone like Mozart would have done with something like this? Also, note to self: buy and read Jane Glover's Mozart's Women.
