About

Recorded at Abbey Road and AIR Studios between 2010 and 2014, these modern recordings of Beethoven’s Symphonies and Overtures, accompanied by an 8,000-word note, are a great value set.

Yondani Butt was born in Macau. He studied conducting with Wolfgang Vacano (1906–1985) at Indiana University, majoring in chemistry. He continued to study conducting with Josef Blatt (1906– 1999) at the University of Michigan while pursuing his chemistry degree. Hailed by Robert Marsh of the Chicago Sun Times as “an outstanding talent”, Yondani Butt has received acclamation from critics and audiences for his many CD recordings and concert performances. He died on 28 August 2014.

“Butt gives an unflagging performance, which has the sense of being made in a single take. This is a solid interpretation of Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony, which shows well the tight ensemble of the London Symphony” - James L Zychowicz, Musicweb International
