"Hats off to John Holloway... His experience shows in remarkably distinctive ways. It isn't merely his command and his deep affinity for both his violin and the music. It is his sound: burnished by time, crystal-clear in the centre but faintly soft-edged; free, never forced... an essay in good taste."
From the CD "Sonate concertate in stil moderno". Dario Castello: Sonata Settima I
From H. Berlioz: Duet "O mon cher fils". Bremen Philharmonic, conductor: John Holloway (7.12.2011)
