Johann Sebastian Bach‘s music transfers well to almost any musical instrument. Including his organ works, whether or not the instrument in question is able to accommodate three separate lines of music.

The video below is a perfect example.

Robert Tiso arranged Bach’s famous organ toccata and fugue in D minor for the glass harp, a set of musical wine glasses whose origins can be traced back to the 18th Century.

As you will see, Tiso is a virtuoso who makes the work sound natural to his instrument, as if it was originally written for it.
