“In what is one of Britten’s most personal and moving finales, Butt achieves a perfect balance between spontaneity and refinement, managing the difficult transition from the impassioned passacaglia material to the sequence of quoted Russian themes with unforced assurance” - Gramophone Magazine
“Warner have found a worthy successor to Rostropovich, for whom Britten wrote these three suites... Meticulously played, with the passion and commitment the composer discerned in their dedicatee, these elegant, eloquent pieces could not have been entrusted to a safer pair of hands” - The Observer (UK)
“Butts account of Brittens poignant Cello Suites falls absurdly easily on the ear. Technically perfect and commanding of the closest attention, this is a debut to enhance any label” - Independent on Sunday (UK)
