Cello Sonatas (3), op.16


Emmanuel Jacques (cello)
Maude Gratton (fortepiano)


Following in the footsteps of Mozart and Haydn, George Onslow invented a middle way between the French and German heritages.

Although he was nicknamed ‘the French Beethoven’, Maude Gratton and Emmanuel Jacques give us the opportunity, in these three sonatas for piano and cello, to discover the true personality of this composer whose music, with its highly individual colours, combines very operatic lyricism and theatricality, pure French elegance, rhythmic vitality and dazzling virtuosity.
