GEORGE ONSLOW: Nonet in A Minor, Op. 77
Witness the premiere of Nova’s first commission, by Andy Vores, hailed as “teeming with imagination” by the Boston Globe. Jessica Jacobs joins Nova for Copland’s light, spring-inspired song As it Fell Upon a Day, and the beautiful Five Songs for Soprano and String Quartet. Onslow (appropriately nicknamed the “French Beethoven”) gives us a passionate, romantic Nonet, popular in its time yet rarely performed today.
