"Four theremin sonatas well-played ... in these sonatas we get a pretty full sample of what the instrument can do ... there is no denying the talent involved ... getting true control of the instrument, as Ms. Eyck has, is no small task ... the musicianship is of very high quality. The recording is quite good. The instrument is captured accurately and the stereo image is solid ... I appreciated the effort and compositions ... others will find it fascinating."
- Audiophile Audition

Internationally acclaimed theremin player Carolina Eyck and pianist Christopher Tarnow are one of the world's few chamber music ensembles for theremin and piano, performing together since 2013. Tarnow composed these pieces for Eyck, including the world's first sonata for theremin and piano. His clear and differentiated piano playing complements the colourful, evocative, mysterious and haunting sounds of the theremin on this unusual and fascinating programme.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
