In 1975, electronic music pioneer Robert Moog realized a long-held dream at his own expense, to document in high quality recordings the artistry of his idol, Theremin virtuoso Clara Rockmore, who was getting on in years. The equivalent of at least two albums were recorded at Producers Recording Studio in New York with Rockmore, her aging instrument that Moog had just revived from a state of disrepair, and Rockmore's longtime accompanist (and sister) Nadia Reisenberg.
This edition celebrates and marks the 50th anniversary (December 6, 1960) of the death of the great Romanian-born pianist.
The first comprehensive edition containing the entire of Clara Haskil's recordings for the Decca, Philips, Deutsche Grammophon and Westminster labels.
