Description: Dating from 1810 and 1823 respectively, Onslow's duet sonatas are classic examples of Germanic early Romanticism, their declamatory chords, calculated pauses and sharp, sudden contrasts akin to the style and sensibility of Spohr, Weber and Schubert. Elizabeth Buccheri, Richard Boldrey (piano). Original 1978 and 1985 recordings.
