Onslow String Quintet No. 26 in C minor, Op. 67

The mercurial and expressive flavour of the French colour this varied programme. The sublime combination of flute, viola and harp weave impressionistic filligree and mist so charactertistic of Debussy, whose influence is also heard in the lilting rhythms and sultry Andalusian tones of Spanish composer Joaquín Turina's piano trio. The recital also looks back a century to the unduly neglected music of George Onslow, a 19th century French composer of English descent.
