Everyone loves Beethoven’s classic song, “Für Elise.” Almost everyone can say they have heard it played on a piano, and maybe even learned to play the tune at some point themselves. Well one musician has taken the classic and transformed it, giving the favorite piece a completely new “crystal” sound. Robert Tiso plays water glasses professionally, and it’s a sound like you’ve never heard before. He plays music from a variety of well-known classical composers like Bach, Schubert, and Mozart, but this particular arrangement is beyond breathtaking.
There is a delicate art to playing this fascinating instrument. When it’s done right, the echo that fills the air is almost magical. What’s more amazing is to make a melody pop out of the layers of sound so clearly. The sounds mix together and reverberate through the air so that you can’t even tell when it fades away. The effect is so fitting for this beautiful melody by Ludwig van Beethoven. Many of the classics of Beethoven’s century have begun to get lost among the thousands of music recordings of the last generations. But when you come back to these classics, you know there is a reason they won’t be lost forever.
This beautiful sound is sure to put you in a trance. Not only is the song executed to perfection, but the quality of the glass playing is spectacular. Listen as the familiar 150-year-old piece is completely transformed. If you are a fan of the original, you may very well fall in love with this version. Get ready to hear the Beethoven classic like never before, in the hypnotizing video below.
