ListenDance of the Sugar Plum Fairy
Composer: P. Tchaikovsky / Performer: Joseph Felice
Instrument: Celesta (plus Grand K1) recorded with Pianoteq 3
This haunting movement from the famous Nutcracker ballet is perhaps the most well-known even written for the celesta. In this particular performance, the otherwise rather discrete celesta is produced with more strength and emotional freedom.

 Celeste: Glockenspiel + Celesta + Toy PianoCelesta
 
ListenPreludio in E Major
Composer: J-S. Bach / Performer: Joseph Felice
Instrument: Glockenspiel (Werckmeister III) recorded with Pianoteq 3
The beautiful bell-like sound of the glockenspiel fits very well to this vivid prelude. Here the mallet noise slider is set to its minimum value and the tuning to Werkmeister III. This change accounts for the slight change in harmony you might otherwise anticipate hearing.
