Martinu

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

A nonet is a wind quintet and a string quartet put together, so it's neither a wind band nor an orchestra. The Ensemble Vienna-Berlin enlisted the help of some New York String players so they could put on Bohuslav Martinu's Nonet at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.
