As a “Keyboard Glockenspiel” the celesta has a range of 5 octaves with an interesting dual character. The way its sound is produced makes it a percussion instrument, but it is usually played by a pianist, not a percussionist. The sound of the celesta is soft and “heavenly” (in French: “céleste”). A famous celesta part can be heard in the Nutcracker Suite of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy.
