5.0 out of 5 stars Guts! October 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mr. Hsieh, the previous reviewer, has gotten the basics right. This is splendidly eccentric and innovative music, meant to entertain you with virtuosity. John Holloway is a rare musician, one who has steadily improved his performance, from quite good to superb. The four Biber sonatas recorded here are full of contrasts and surprises, so that listening to several in a row lacks no sense of variety. If you've ever wondered, by the way, what difference gut strings on a fiddle and historically informed bow technique could possibly make, do yourself the favor of getting this CD. You'll HEAR the difference in the sound the violin makes.

5.0 out of 5 stars strong recommodation October 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I strongly recommand all this disc with two reasons, one is that I think Biber's violin sonata was very beautiful but seldom gotten honors. We could find his music was more creative with rich tone color. I must say that it isn't easy during his ages, which were full of italy violin tradition. Just for this reason, I think Biber was a graet musician.

Holloway perform well in this disc and show fully biber music's important element, deepgoing intension, so that I think Holloway should get good appreciation. Comparing to his early recordings, ex buxtehude sonata, I found his muisc was graduallu growing better and better.

Above these reasons, do you want to try it? I promise you won't be disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musica per l'anima June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is music for your soul. Biber's sonatas are introspective, searching, joyous, rhapsodic - and John Holloway and Co. bring their spiritual essence to the fore as no one else can. Throughout Holloway offers a virtual masterclass in fine Baroque violin playing, and the sumptuous yet elegant sound of the harpsichord-and-organ continuo is pure joy. This disc, along with its companion disc "Unam Ceylum," is one I wouldn't want to be without on the proverbial desert island.
