About George Onslow (composer)

  • André George(s) Louis Onslow (27 July 1784 – 3 October 1853) was a French composer of English descent.
  • His wealth, position and personal tastes allowed him to pursue a path unfamiliar to most of his French contemporaries, more similar to that of his contemporary German romantic composers; his music also had a strong following in Germany and in England.
  • His principal output was chamber music, but he also wrote four symphonies and four operas.
  • Esteemed by many of the critics of his time, his reputation declined swiftly after his death and has only been revived in recent years.
