By a (generalized) Fock space we understand a Hilbert space of entire analytic functions in the complex plane C\mathbb C which are square integrable with respect to a weight of the type eQ(z)e^{–Q(z)}, where Q(z)Q(z) is a quadratic form such that trQ>0Q>0. Each such space is in a natural way associated with an (oriented) circle CC in C\mathbb C. We consider the problem of interpolation betweeumn two Fock spaces. If C0C_0 and C1C_1 are the corresponding circles, one is led to consider the pencil of circles generated by C0C_0 and C1C_1. If HH is the one parameter Lie group of Moebius transformations leaving invariant the circles in the pencil, we consider its complexification HcH^c which permutes these circles and with the aid of which we can construct the "Calderón curve" giving the complex interpolation. Similarly, real interpolation leads to a multiplier problem for the transforrnation that diagonalizes all the operators in HcH^c. It turns out that the result is rather sensitive to the nature of the pencil, and we obtain nearly complete results for elliptic and parabolic pencils only.
