John Holloway (b1948)

John Holloway is one of the pioneers of the modern early music movement in England. He founded his first Baroque ensemble in 1975, and made the first complete recording of the chamber music of Handel. From 1977 to 1991, he was concertmaster of Andrew Parrott’s Taverner Players, and from 1978 to 1992 concertmaster of Roger Norrington’s London Classical Players. In addition to his concert schedule, John Holloway has an extensive and award-winning discography: in 1991 he won a Gramophone Award for his recording of Biber’s Mystery Sonatas, and he has also recorded the violin sonatas of J.S. Bach, Corelli and Handel, as well as two versions of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and many other solo and ensemble works from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Recent recordings include a sequence for ECM New Series: Schmelzer’s Sonatae unarum fidium, two CDs featuring the 1681 Sonatas by Biber, a CD of sonatas by Veracini and a double CD of the complete sonatas and partitas for solo violin by J.S. Bach. Other recording projects include a CD of sonatas by Leclair, and the complete Paris Quartets by Telemann. John Holloway is Professor of Violin and String Chamber Music at the Hochschule für Musik in Dresden.
