About

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.

“If you’re one of those classical enthusiasts who prefer their Wagner experience to be administered in brief but nonetheless memorable doses this splendid new Nimbus collection could well have been conceived specifically with you in mind. Conductor Yondani Butt and the LSO serve up commanding performances of some of the most evocative and instantly recognisable orchestral passages in the Wagner canon, including ‘Magic Flute Music’, Siegfried’s ‘Rhine Journey’ and the CDs show stopping finale, ‘Ride of the Valkyries’.” – Halesowen News

“Wagner’s overture to The Flying Dutchman… Here everything moves forcefully, with eloquent contrast provided by the theme associated with Senta. Butt seems to really be enjoying himself. The sound in these recordings is extremely vivid and realistic… Butt’s Wagner is very impressive” – musicweb-international.com
