    Smile Looking for glockenspiel symphony

    Hi,
    If anyone can help me here please.
    I heard what I believed to be a wonderful glockenspiel musical piece whilst travelling on United Airlines through their in flight entertainment classical music channel.
    I know very little concerning classical music, but love listening to it from time to time. The piece that I listened to was what i thought to be a glockenspiel. the recording went for at least 5 minutes and was made up of almost 100% glockenspiel.
    If anyone can point me in the right direction to re discover this recording I'd be very grateful.

    Was it the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker? It's actually a celeste, not a glockenspiel, but a celeste is basically a piano with a glockenspiel inside rather than strings. Its the only classical piece I can think of that fits your description.

    Thanks for the input, but unfortunately it wasn't the Dance of the sugar plum fairy. It was also a more intense piece than that.
    Thanks again

    Have you tried asking United Airlines, giving them the date of the flight?

    Efram, was it glockenspiel solo, or with orchestra accompaniment? That might be a good starting point to investigate from.

    Are you sure it was classical and not Radiohead - No Surprises?
