Weightlessness: 100th Anniversary of Theremin

This music is about flying, floating free in space, contemplation of the infinite, of interstellar distances and particles invisible to the eye. It is about the mysterious luminescence of planets and scorching radiance of the stars, about the incredible distances our imagination can envisage and about the beauty of the universe.

Olesya Rostovskaya: composer and one of the world’s leading thereminists
Asya Sorshneva: broad ranging musician in diverse genres and winner of a number of international contests and awards

These recordings include unrehearsed improvisations based on the sense of ensemble and their search for beauty.
