Notes & Reviews:

The Consortium Classicum presents two of the very last works of George Onslow who died in 1853: the Nonet op. 77 and the Grand Septuor op. 79. George Onslow was of English and French noble ancestry - which made life difficult and unsettled during what were revolutionary times. Born in the Auvergne in 1784, he had to flee with his parents to Hamburg. He later studied in London and Vienna and then returned to Paris in the early nineteenth century as an avid pianist and young chamber composer whose cosmopolitan, virtuoso chamber concertos sold like hot cakes.
