The première of my Concerto for Theremin and Chamber Orchestra (“Theremin Concerto” for short) by Theremin player Scott Paulson and the San Diego Chamber Orchestra is exactly 2 weeks from today! So I thought this would be a good time to post a little excerpt from my not-quite-bona-fide, deep-fried, naugahyde, MIDI-fied version (with apologies) …which I’ve been told is pretty good, actually.
Of course, when real humans play it on real instruments, it’ll sound muuuuch better! 😀
The concert is getting some good advance media coverage — stay tuned for links and specifics. And of course, if you’re in the San Diego area (and, let’s face it, at this time of year, who wouldn’t want to be?), step right up and get your tickets here! I’m told that their Friday night performances tend to sell out, so don’t delay!
The excerpt, by the way, is from the opening section of the piece, right where the theremin enters. The clip is about 45 seconds long — that’s 50% more preview than iTunes gives you! Do I take care of my peeps, or what?! 😉

I can’t wait to hear the real thing!
