Some composers write glockenspiel parts explicitly for the keyboard glockenspiel and include chordal playing which can only be performed on such an instrument (e.g. in W. A. Mozart’s The Magic Flute or Olivier Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques). However, because the sound of the keyboard glockenspiel is inferior to its mallet-played counterpart, demanding glockenspiel parts are nowadays usually performed on the celesta.
