New Theremin recording by Thorwald Jørgensen

Bury me, bury me wind by Josef Schillinger (1929, lyrics: Anna Achmatova) is one of the first if not the very first original works written for Theremin. It is also most probably the first piece combining traditional instruments and the new "Elektromusikalny Instrument".
