The stuff nightmares are made of.

This is a video of “The Song of Grusia by Rachmaninov,” says Clara Rockmore: Theremin Extraordinaire. Clara is a little depressing to look at (she seems to me like a real-life version of one of the bad guys on the old scooby-doo cartoons) but, man, she made beautiful music. And yes, props to Edith Bunker on piano. I’m posting this video because I was just looking at this other blog that had a video of a guy playing Tchaikovsky with wine glasses. It was really pretty and, for no apparent reason, reminded me of Clara Rockmore.
