Composer of chamber music, George Onslow (1784-1853) was probably one of the most important figures in French Romantic music. His quartets and string quintets were a considerable success in Paris, then throughout Europe. He was regarded as one of the greatest harmonists of his time. His best-known work is probably his Quintet op. 38, known as “La Balle”.
