Listen to the heavenly sounds of the celesta. Here you will find celesta sound samples from different musical eras and the most famous celesta parts.

The Spanish pianist Celia García-García has recorded famous piano pieces on a Schiedmayer-Celesta. The exceptional sound of the celesta instrument brings new colours into the music. The famous works of Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Gershwin and others have never been heard – an absolute rarity on the record market!
