Notes & Reviews:

Cristiano Holtz studied harpsichord in the Netherlands and was the last official student of Gustav Leonhardt. He is professor of harpsichord at the Gregorian Institute of Lisbon. A winner of numerous competitions his disc devoted to the music of Handel received the coveted Japanese Record Academy Award in 2011.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Holtz plays with joy, elan, and unimpeachable clarity of intention. He dedicates this program to the memory of Gustav Leonhardt (1928-2012) the influential harpsichordist and conductor. Holtz was Leonhardt's last official student. Perhaps he has placed the poignant Chorale H 691 'Wen nur den Lieben Gott Lasst Walten' at the heart of his program as an homage to his beloved teacher.
