Museum Street Methodist Church


Ondes Martenot: Malcolm Ball   Piano: Peter Humphrey
The Ondes Martenot was invented in 1928 by the French musician Maurice Martenot
who was inspired by the accidental overlaps of tones between military radio oscillators,
and wanted to create an electronic musical instrument with the expressiveness of the
cello. This is a rare opportunity to see and hear the rich and expressive nature of
the instrument in original works and arrangements of popular classics.
