Classical Guitar Magazine
“...this is a recording to make many new friends for this composer, with fine performances full of clarity, sharp articulation and stylistic assurance and a clear and focused recorded sound.”
“The major works in Holzman's programme are the two sonatas, each with four movements. Of these Op 25 is by far the finer – and the best work of its kind from the period; the last movement is a Minuet, a final lightening of atmosphere that was not then uncommon. The Divertissement, Op 23 contains 10 pieces – Valses, Allegrettos, Andantes, a Minuetto and an Allemande. With a few exceptions they're more likely to be of interest to guitarists than to the general listener. Holzman plays very well, with a softer sound than Goluses (see above), and in a tighter acoustic. At slower tempos he exercises a pleasing degree of rubato and commendable dynamic shading; one wishes he had done likewise in the quicker ones, which incline to the metronomic. These are two discs that should, both in their own right and at super-budget price, be irresistible to guitarists.”
