Theremin-The Swan

Theremins are often associated with scary movie soundtracks. This is a little unfair. They are very expressive instruments that also do well with other types of music, including classical. The Swan by Camille Saint-Saenz is a piece that seems to be uniquely suited to the expressive qualities of the theremin.
