Notes & Reviews:

Live recordings of the Bach Cello Suites are rare, with soloists using the safety of the recording studio and the opportunities offered for re-takes and patching. William Butt prefers to take risks with the help of an audience and creates remarkable performances in the process with these iconic works by JS Bach, presented here from Warner Classics. London-born William Butt studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Moray Welsh. He now performs & serves as the professor of cello at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin, and plays on a fine cello made by Giovanni Grancino in Milan (1690).

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
William Butt is a mystery. You must go to his website for a bio. He is an early music performer with little vibrato. These performances were recorded with an audience, a quiet one.
