Carolina Eyck is a German-Sorbian musician and composer, largely recognized as the world’s leading theremin virtuoso. She was awarded the Echo Klassik Prize for “Concert Recording of the Year” in 2015.
Eyck has performed in concert halls around the world and has been a soloist with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Brussels Philharmonic, Argentine National Symphony Orchestra, and more. Concertos for theremin and orchestra have been written for Eyck by composers including Kalevi Aho, Andrew Norman, Dalit Warshaw, and Régis Campo. She was also featured in the premiere of Fazil Say’s Universe and Mesopotamia Symphonies.
Carolina Eyck has performed in a duo with pianist and composer Christopher Tarnow since 2013, producing two records. In 2016, she released an album featuring her own composition “Fantasias for Theremin and String Quartet” with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble.
Balancing between minimal and progressive electronic music, Carolina’s melodic and partly fixed composition style leaves plenty of space for her virtuoso improvisations. Her transcription of Ennio Morricone’s “The Ecstasy of Gold” has been viewed more than 15 million times online. She enjoys collaborating with contemporary artists from a variety of genres, and has performed or recorded with rock legend Steve Vai, singer-songwriter Gotye, DJ Jeff Mills, guitarist Jim Moginie, Tangerine Dream, multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, and vocalist Theo Bleckmann, among others.
