Bach: Violin Sonatas / Russell, Butt
Format: SACD / CD Hybrid
Prize-winning Bach specialist John Butt O.B.E. and distinguished violinist Lucy Russell deliver a personal and historically informed performance on ‘J.S. Bach: Sonatas for violin and harpsichord’. Perhaps best known as director of Dunedin Consort, John Butt has won two Gramophone Awards: the ‘Baroque Vocal’ Award for ‘Handel: Messiah’ and the ‘Choral’ Award for ‘Mozart: Requiem’. Fitzwilliam String Quartet leader Lucy Russell is among the most distinguished of international violinists who have achieved eminence on both historical instruments and their ‘modern’ counterparts.
