Is this classical??
John Willoughby | Amherst, MA | 05/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"That "Is this classical??" was a question from a colleague when I first put this CD on at work. The organ and harpsichord continuo produce such a "beat" that I could understand him needing to ask the question. The the violin begins to weave it's complex thread. By the second track my colleague had the answer to his question but was hooked.

It's a very seductive, atmospheric piece. Surely obscure stuff like this shouldn't be so accessible?"
Gentle Music, Beautiful Performance

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Schmelzer is well-known to wind musicians as a composer of suitable occasional music, well-constructed, sonorous, and not over-challenging. These pieces come as a revelation of a deeper musical spirit. They are modest and serene, and very thoughtful. What makes this CD special is the superb playing of John Holloway. I've heard him play many times, on disks and live, and I've never enjoyed his musicianship more. His tone on the gut strings of his baroque violin is as smooth and vibrant as fine dark chocolate."
Exquisite

"This is the most beautiful CD. It's uplifting, tight, clean, crisp and vigorous. Great listening."
