When I was a kid my father brought home a matrioshka doll from his Boston Symphony Chamber Players tour of Russia during the late 1960s. I never thought that there would ever be an actual musical use for such a doll until a few minutes ago when I encountered this blog post by Matthew Whittall. Here is another performance that is a rather odd meeting of musical worlds.

Here is a lovely "old school" Theremin performance of "The Swan" by Masami Takeuchi, the creator of the matryomin.
