glow on the horizon

“Evocative droplets of magic, fittingly grouped under the title, 'Glow on the Horizon'. A joy to play, and to listen to.”

(Derek Williams, President of the Wagner Society & Chief Conductor of the Abbotsford String Orchestra, 9/2/2020)

Dream tree

“In this new album of piano music, many of the pieces involve a simple, deliberate-sounding phrase, repeated several times before being developed, sometimes reaching towards a climax, sometimes fading out. The result is clear-cut musical phrasing, and highly affecting…

…this is emotive, inspirational music that rewards repeated listening.”

(Alexander Bryce, Scotland on Sunday, 5/2/2015)


“…ambitious, yet similarly reflective and resonant. The opening ‘Wandelung – Preface’, evoking a frozen winter scene, made do with widely spaced chords and gently rippling arpeggios, yet the effect was magical. Bittersweet melodies surfaced in Holzmann’s ‘Zwei Welten’ and ‘Wandelung’, turning over and over, and seeming to view the same material from different angles.

(David Kettle, The Edinburgh Reporter, 25/1/2012)


“… meditative rather than declamatory… Ravel comes to mind, as does Arvo Pärt ”

(Alexander Bryce, Scotland on Sunday, 8/5/2011)


“The calm and softly pulsating rhythms of the two piano cycles radiate a feeling of great tranquility and comfort”

(Georg Füchtner, Oberbayerisches Volksblatt, 22/3/2011)


“… very affective… and instantly appealing ”

(Jamie MacDougall, BBC Radio Scotland, 13/2/2011)

a quiet room and sparrows

“Vroni Holzmann’s ‘A Quiet Room and Sparrows’ was mesmerising in it’s rhythm and building melody”

(Josie Balfour, Edinburgh Evening News, 3/11/2009)
