Arrangements for glass harmonica & verrophone: Vienna Glass Harmonica Duo                           

The artists at the sofa concert presented by Rolando Villazón could not be more unusual. After all, when do you get to hear such unusual instruments? Of course, the artificial whistling does not require any technical aids. The Austrian director and puppeteer Nikolaus Habjan revitalised the tradition of artificial whistling, which has its roots in the 19th century. Like the Vienna Glass Harmonica Duo, his crystal-clear intonation makes him one of the best in his field worldwide.
