Instrumentation: String Quartet (Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello)
Size: 8.1 x 11.8 inches
This string quartet, along with other chamber works by Onslow, is worthy of serious study alongside works of other composers of the period such as Beethoven. It has a lively and tuneful first movement, a beautiful theme and variations (including a florid variation with an exciting part for 1st violin), a pretty minuet and trio and a rousing final movement. All instruments have interesting parts.
