Description: The Nonet is rather popular now; this is the fourth recording of it we've offered. There are also a couple each of the wind quintet and the Septet but this is the only currently available recording of the original wind version of the Sextet (an MD&G release we offered has it in Onslow's own string version). And, at Timpani's new distributor, there's a price-break on double-disc sets, making these new recordings that much more attractive. 2 CDs. Ensemble Initium, Ensemble Contraste.
