Pre-show Talk with Artist in Hall, 6:30 pm
“Virtuosity, magic, and humor.” —The New York Times
Rob Schwimmer, a master thereminist from the duo Polygraph Lounge, will present a program that includes stunning originals, his unique take on the Great American Songbook (through jazz, Americana, and fascinating movie soundtracks), and avant-garde, classical, and the unclassifiable. Rob’s triple recital will range from the piano, to theremin (one of the first electronic instruments and the only instrument you play without touching), to an amazing new instrument called the Haken Continuum, which raises electronic expression into the realm of the immediacy and depth of acoustic instruments. As always with Schwimmer, he brings his audience with him on a deeply artistic yet fun journey of musical discovery and adventure.
