Theremin and theremists
If God or Gods or Angels or Devils could play a musical instrument, this would be, with no doubts, Theremin. An unprecedented Russian innovation, it’s simply magic. It’s a musical instrument that can’t be touched. Or, better: touched with no touch. The Theremin player, or the theremist, looks like a maestro with no button, a commander of an invisible orchestra, inebriating the listener with ether. In fact, theremin sounds like the wind coming inside through the window, or like the hypnotic chant of a mermaid, like the invisible presence of a phantom.
A performer manages sound without touching the instrument. Particularly, with the help of hand movements in the air near the two antennas, the only tool of its kind.
Meanwhile, Theremin sounds in academic, jazz, rock and pop music, Soviet and foreign films. Noteworthy, outstanding personalities played the theremin – Vladimir Lenin, Charlie Chaplin, and Albert Einstein. Today, such musicians as Sting, Jean-Michel Jarre, Rammstein, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Portheshead, Sting, Сплин, БГ, and БИ2 used it.

Russian poetry – Marina Tsvetaeva and Anna Akhmatova
Most people interested in Russian literature and the culture of the twentieth century are familiar with the names Anna Akhmatova and Marina Tsvetaeva. However, few of them read any of their literary works. Considered two of the most talented writers of the century, they both experienced much suffering as artists and individuals in this tumultuous century.
Born on 8 October 1892, Soviet poet Marina Tsvetaeva lived through and wrote of the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Moscow famine that followed it. Sadly, in an attempt to save her daughter Irina from starvation, she placed her in a state orphanage in 1919, where she died of hunger. Tsvetaeva left Russia in 1922 and lived with her family in increasing poverty in Paris, Berlin and Prague before returning to Moscow in 1939. Her husband Sergei Efron and her daughter Ariadna Efron (Alya) got arrested on espionage charges in 1941; and her husband – executed. And Tsvetaeva herself committed suicide in 1941. As a lyrical poet, her passion and daring linguistic experimentation mark her as a striking chronicler of her times and the depths of the human condition.
