Music by wine glass – the haunting “glass harp” of Robert Tiso

There are some strange instruments in this world – and one of them is a staple component of Sunday dinner (at Hillcroft at least): the wine glass.

I can recall numerous evenings where we have, after too many bottles of Pinot Noir, attempted to play a few notes between however many happen to be perched around the table. Seeing the new Skoda ad, I was prompted to trawl round YouTube. Robert Tiso is one of a number of talented musicians who takes this to a whole new level, sometimes recording and splicing together several parts of classical favourites to create a haunting soundscape.

Below is the ad and several examples of Tiso’s recordings.

Beautiful.
