Catalogue Number: 09S025
Description: Many ensembles on many labels have snacked on many of Onslow’s string quintets but there are 34 of them so no surprise that No. 20 is a first recording. Let’s see how far this series goes (or how many of us outlive it) in its survey of this consistently inventive, expressive and often dramatic music. Elan Quintet.
