celesta instruments

Looks like a small piano. It is a wooden building, which is built into the piano mechanism with upholstered hammers.

When you press the bottom, the hammers strike by chromatically small steel plate. Echo after hitting by soft hammer is muffled by common to all mechanical damper plates.

The technique of playing is the same as the piano. Celesta sound — delicate and transparent, like the sound of bells. Some like C. is relatively rare.

For the first time was used in the second half of the 20s. Among the musicians who have used celesta are pianists Meade Lax Lewis, Thomas Fete Waller, Earl Hines (USA).
