Notes & Reviews:

Following in the footsteps of Mozart and Haydn, George Onslow forged a middle path between the French and German heritages. Although he was nicknamed 'the French Beethoven,' in these three sonatas cellist Emmanuel Jacques and pianist Maude Gratton give listeners the opportunity to discover the true personality of a composer whose music, with its highly individual colors, combines operatic lyricism and theatricality, French elegance, rhythmic vitality and dazzling virtuosity.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Georges Onslow (1784-1853) has been recorded a good deal in the last few years. Most of his work is associated with Paris. His music is lively and relaxed by turns. His cello sonatas are lovely and the conversational relations between cello and piano are attractively handled.
