Carolina Eyck is a German-Sorbian musician and composer, largely recognised as the world’s leading theremin virtuoso. She was awarded the Echo Klassik Prize for “Concert Recording of the Year” in 2015. She has given concerts in over 30 countries and has played with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Brussels Philharmonic, Argentine National Symphony Orchestra, and more. In 2022, she performed at the BBC Proms with the BBC Philharmonic. Carolina has released several solo albums, including “Elegies for Theremin & Voice” (2019) and “Thetis 2086” (2022). Her transcription of Ennio Morricone’s “The Ecstasy of Gold” has been viewed more than 15 million times online. Carolina regularly conducts theremin master classes. She developed her own precise eight-finger-position playing technique by age 16 and published the first extensive theremin method book “The Art of Playing the Theremin”. Her method is being used by thereminists around the world and has revolutionised how the instrument is played.
Miika Vintturi is a pianist and composer. He holds a diploma in classical piano from the Sibelius Academy, where he graduated with a Master’s degree in 2022. He has performed with Maija Vilkkumaa and Vesta’s ensembles, and has worked as a keyboard player in the Lahti City Theatre and in the musical Rottien pyhimys at the Music Theatre Kapsäkki. In the 2023-24 season, Vintturi will perform in the National Opera’s Koululaisooppera, in Aarne Pelkonen’s ensemble and will compose a new solo piano suite.
Carolina Eyck’s concert at the Sibelius Museum is part of her tour in Finland. Eyck will also be heard on Thursday 18 April in the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra’s concert Eight Seasons. Composer Kalevi Aho’s theremin concerto dedicated to Eyck draws its inspiration from the eight seasons of Lapland’s mystical nature.
