The Berceuse From Jocelyn, Arranged For Theremin By Peter Pringle

Sunday Synth Jam: It’s Sunday, so we’re catching up on some synth jams and and electronic music performances from the last week.

Here’s another one of multi-instrumentalist Peter Pringle‘s elegant classical transcriptions for theremin, the Berceuse from Jocelyn, an opera written by French composer Benjamin Godard (1849 – 1895).

Pringle transcribed it for harp (Venus “Aquilan” concert harp) and theremin. He performed it on a 1929 RCA theremin that once belonged to the late Dr. Samuel Hoffman, who played the theremin on countless mid-century film scores.
