JS Bach Cello Suite No 1 in G Major BWV 1007
E Rautavaara Sonata for Cello Solo
A much admired exponent of the solo cello repertoire and firm favourite with Festival audiences, William Butt is a prolific performer of works for the medium by a myriad of contemporary composers, as well as the suites of Bach and Britten which he has recorded to critical acclaim. Alongside Bach’s much-loved First Cello Suite, Bill offers a towering work by the celebrated Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, his Sonata for Solo Cello, a magnificent evocation of the Baroque era.
We remember with great affection, long time members and supporters of the Festival;
Alison Casey, Denis O’Sullivan and John Donnelly.
