The Glass Harp, also known as "musical glasses", is a musical instrument invented in 1741 by Irishman Richard Pockrich.
It consists in a set of stemware glasses tuned by adding a precise amount of water and played by rubbing moistened fingers around the rims.
Wine glass music has evolved ever since, specially with the invention of the glass harmonica (armonica) by Benjamin Franklin.
Robert Tiso is one of the few glass players presently performing. The magical and mesmerizing sound of his wine glass instrument has been appreciated and acclaimed world wide in many different kind of events, shows and festivals.

About this video:
The first voice is the cello part (bottom right),
Clockwise there is 1st 2nd and 3rd violin.
the original cello track was lowered 1 octave to reach the low notes. I also added a few orchestra strings to round up the sharp sound of the glasses

This is one of the greatest hits in the classical world which was composed in the 1680's by Johann Pachelbel.

Pachelbel's Canon, also known as Canon in D major (PWC 37, T. 337, PC 358), is the most famous piece of music by German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel. It was originally scored for three violins and basso continuo and paired with a gigue in the same key. Like most other works by Pachelbel and other pre-1700 composers, the Canon remained forgotten for centuries and was rediscovered only in the 20th century. Several decades after it was first published in 1919, the piece became extremely popular, and today it is frequently played at weddings and included on classical music compilations, along with other famous Baroque pieces such as Air on the G String by Johann Sebastian Bach.
