Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Onslow is a composer who is being rediscovered thanks to an increasing number of recordings devoted to him and as he gradually makes his way back onto concert programs. Known primarily for his myriad string quartets and quintets, he is less well known for his works with winds, which he combined with strings for the Nonet, or a piano and double bass for the Sextet and Septet. Having previously existed only in dispersed order, all the works are brought together here in a double set. This also provides the occasion for discovering a young wind ensemble, made up of soloists from major orchestras, in residence at the Singer-Polignac Foundation and regularly featured at the Deauville Festival.
