The Kid Should See This

Franz Liszt’s La Campanella played on a glass harp

Watch more with these video collections:

In the streets of Prague in the Czech Republic, Petr Spatina plays a beautiful version of Franz Liszt‘s La Campanella (The Bell) from Grandes études de Paganini, six artistic and technical piano pieces based on Nicolò Paganini‘s violin compositions. Spatina’s instrument: A glass harp — 33 wine glasses tuned with different amounts of water. The video was filmed in 2014.

We have more glass harp videos in the archives, including this one. (Might that be Spatina, too?) Also: More Franz Liszt.
