Bach's Toccata and Fugue, Played on a Glass Harp

YouTube link.

Neatorama has recently featured Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, played on floppy disk drives.  Several years ago we showed the piece played on an accordion.  But we somehow missed this version, played on a glass harp.  The instrumentalist is Robert Tiso.

Cool and hypnotic.

As it happens, I have a post on my own blog about the glass harmonica (with links to sound samples):

drumach, this IS a glass harp: "A glass harp (also called musical glasses, singing glasses, angelic organ, verrilion or ghost fiddle) is an instrument made of upright wine glasses."

What you're probably thinking of is a "glass harmonica."

Unbelievable. One of the best things I've ever seen on Neatorama. Of course, that outs me as a music major in college. But great jumping jujubees, that was amazing. My hat is off to this guy. When he finished my wife and I both spontaneously applauded the computer screen.
