- Alan Cole. George Alexander Osborne (24 September 1806 - 16 November 1893) was an Irish composer and pianist. Osborne was born in Limerick. He left Ireland at the age of eighteen, when he left for Brussels, where he was appointed music instructor for the eldest son of the Dutch king, William of Orange, and became friends with Charles de Bériot. Osborne settled permanently in London when he encouraged a nervous Chopin during the latter's tour of England in 1848.
