German-born performer and composer Carolina Eyck is widely considered the world’s foremost theremin virtuosa. She began playing the theremin at age seven and made her debut with the Berlin Philharmonic in 2002. She has given concerts worldwide and performed with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the HR-Symphony Orchestra, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Bern Symphony Orchestra, the Essen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lapland Chamber Orchestra, the Heidelberg Symphonic Orchestra, the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg and ACME, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble. She was awarded with a 2015 ECHO-Classic prize in Germany for “Concert Recording of the Year (Music 20./21.Century)” as the soloist on the recording of the Theremin Concerto “Eight Seasons” by Kalevi Aho, and has recorded for BIS, GENUINE, and Butterscotch Records. In 2016, she released Fantasias for Theremin and String Quartet, recorded with ACME for Butterscotch. On her next album for Butterscotch, out in 2019, Eyck sings and plays the theremin in her own original music. As a synesthete, Eyck experiences clear links between color and sound both while listening to and playing music, and frequently creates visual art in response to music. Since 2010, she has been the artistic director of the Theremin Summer Academy in Colmar (France), and since 2013 she has led the Theremin Spring Academy in Leipzig (Germany).
