‘sugar plum fairy’ on a glass harp (water music)


(Video link here.)

We were charmed by this wondrous rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Sugar Plum Fairy on a glass harp – wine glasses filled with water. We were also amazed when went to GlassDuo’s website and learned:

“Many of those who see a set of wine glasses for the first time consider it most avant-garde to use it as a musical instrument. And it amazes them to learn that in the Far East glass instruments were already known in the Middle Ages…”

How makeshift led to such beauty…

…And then we remembered the water music our friend Peggy Markel filmed on a street in India

Magic.
