In memory of a great musician and a courageous woman

We have learned that our friend and much-admired performer, Barbara Buchholz, has died in Berlin after a long struggle with cancer. Barbara Buchholz was one of the world's great theremin players, and we are honored that she chose Sa Taronja as the place to give her concerts and workshops in Mallorca. Performer, composer and teacher, she was a bold and inventive musician and a tireless promotor of the Theremin, inspiring many students to take up this difficult instrument. She had a keen sense of humour and an endless willingness to experiment and evolve. She will be much missed by all who knew her, and especially by the artists and musicians who worked with her in the PING festival between 2006 an 2010,

Her music can be heard on
