Performs Beethoven's Septet in E Flat major, Op. 20,
Brahm's Serenade in D, Op. 11.

The Czech Nonet is one of the oldest continuously performing ensembles of its type in the world. Founded in 1924, the ensemble uses the instrumentation requirements of Ludwig Spohr's Grand Nonetto, Op. 31 (violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and horn).

Nearly from its inception, the Czech Nonet has been invited to perform by leading international festivals and venues and became an ardent champion of the music of its time instigating the composition of nearly 300 works by some of the greatest composers including Prokofiev, Lutoslawski, Martinu, and Schulhoff. In addition, its instrumentation allows it to include works from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods in its repertoire. The Czech Nonet records for the Praga record label.
