“The Swan” on the Saw and How to Make A Glass Harp

In addition to people who play saws, there are people who play water glasses. Robert Tiso is an excellent glass harp player, and here you can hear him with Felice Pantone playing “The Swan” from the Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns. It’s a beautiful combination of two unusual instruments.

If you decide you want to make a glass harp of your own, you can visit Mr. Tiso’s website. He has directions on how to make and tune a glass harp. If you’d rather just relax, sit back and listen to this rendition of “The Swan.”
