Rob Schwimmer Performs Erich Korngold’s ‘In Meine Innige Nacht’

Sunday Synth Jam: Rob Schwimmer, of the New York Theremin Society, performs Erich Korngold’s In meine innige Nacht on a Hobbs theremin.

Here’s what Schmwimmer has to say about the performance:

“I fell in love with this strange and beautiful song by Erich Wolfgang Korngold from his Drei Gesänge Op.18 – 1 called “In meine innige Nacht”. Some of you may know Korngold from his great soundtracks from the 1930’s and 40’s. This piece, composed in 1924, reminds me a little of Messiaen… pre-Messiaen. In concert at Carleton College in Northfield, MN 5/8/15.”

Technical details:

Schwimmer pre-recorded the piano part himself. The custom theremin was created by Charlie Hobbs.
