I once got to see Clara Rockmore play the theremin at the Coolidge Corner theater in Brookline Massachusetts before she died. The only reason I started listening to classical music is because of her and Chuck Jones.
That's amazing! I saw Johnny Legendscreen the only existing 16mm film print of My Breakfast With Blassie along with two hours of original prints from his extensive collection of PSAs and exploitation trailers (including the full 30 minute version of the Sonny Bono anti marijuana film) back in the 90s, that place used to be incredible.
Also saw Cool As Ice and Santa Sangre there in the early 2000s and late 90s, respectively.
But none of that comes close to Clara Rockmore in person. You're very lucky.

Looks like she's jerking off a ghost

This is my favorite Clara Rockmore performance and my favorite version of The Swan.
When I got my entry level theremin from Bob Moog back in the late 90s it came with an hour long VHS tape of this whole performance, I've still got it somewhere.
I'd actually go so far as to say this is in my top 10 favorite recorded performances fulls top.
I'm sure it's already up somewhere, I'll check.
Actually it isn't anymore (it used to be). The audio is, but the video must have been pulled. It looks like the whole thing is on Youtube but split up into different clips and uploaded by different people. If I find mine I'll upload it but that might be a while, I've had a lot going on lately.
If you're impatient, it's not too hard to find for sale. It's called"Clara Rockmore: the Greatest Theremin Virtuosa" on VHS, or you can get it on the Mastering the Theremin DVD.
Still in print.
Oh btw, I can pick this up from scarecrow, Oz.
Like I said, I've had it on VHS since the late 90s but if they have the DVD it would be easier than finding and digitizing my tape.
