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.”

Gramophone Classical Music Guide


“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.”
