More Glass harmonica

Thomas Bloch, one of the great modern masters of the Glass harmonica plays Mozart. And below the famous scene from Kuhle Wampe with the street musicians playing some kind of keyboard which sure looks and sounds like a glass harmonica, but is a harmonium. The droning fiddle is a musical saw. The weird sounds waft upstairs to the tenement... horrible atmosphere at home with the brutish father. And then the son jumps out of the window... This is a lousy clip, but shows the critical moment in the film. Watch the full movie on this site HERE (full screen facility too)
