This autumn we bring you the music of the ‘other’ Beethoven: George Onslow.

Such was his fame in his day that he was nicknamed ‘The French Beethoven’, yet today the music of this Anglo-French composer is largely forgotten.

Hear his Symphony No.1 alongside Beethoven’s Symphony 3 at the Royal Festival Hall on 22 October and at Basingstoke’s Anvil on 24 October.
