Ralph Holmes (Violin)

Peter Dickinson (Piano)

Ralph Holmes was one of the leading violinists of his generation. This release aims to supplement the small Holmes repertoire on CD and catch him at the height of his powers. With the exception of the Bartok (which appears here courtesy of Decca), the performances were made for the BBC in the 1980s and are previously unpublished, displaying Holmes’ versatility as an artist.

Aided by the crisp playing of Peter Dickinson, he gives a winningly fresh account of Beethoven’s Spring Sonata, with a slow movement movingly delivered in hushed tension, a beautifully sprung account of the brief Scherzo and free-flowing accounts of the outer movements…Holmes plays [the Bartok] with seeming ease…every note is crystal clear, making evident Bartok’s mastery…Altogether, a splendid tribute to Holmes. — Gramophone Magazine, May 2012
