Christa Schönfeldinger Glass Harmonica
Imagine music that sounds like it’s been spun from pure crystal. When the glass harmonica was first invented in the 18th century, listeners thought they were hearing the voices of angels, and Mozart was enchanted. His rarely heard Adagio is the little glint of magic at the centre of a concert that features two of his very greatest symphonies, conducted by livewire and all-round musical Renaissance man Jörg Widmann – who’s written his own, shimmering tribute to this instrument from another age.
