Musical wine glass

A wine glass has been developed in Austria that plays musical notes when a finger is run along the rim. As reported on, the lead-free crystal glass features gold lines corresponding to different musical notes covering a full 12-note octave from A flat to G. Each etching denotes the level of wine required to play that particular note.
For a “lush, sonorous note”, the makers recommend running a finger along the rim. The same note will also ring out with a gentle rap of a spoon against the side of the glass. The glasses, sold in pairs, are available for US$80 from A must for dinner parties. What would you play with yours?...
