Disc of the Week: BBC Radio 3's CD Review 

Performance: 5 stars '...for sheer freshness, insight and life-enhancing joy, this newcomer goes to the top of the class.' BBC Music Magazine  

'Linn's fast-building accumulation of core Baroque repertory continues here with the sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord, six wondrous works which never stop giving...These are immensely likable performances, and a mission accomplished, I would suggest, for (Lucy) Russell.' Gramophone

'Harpsichordist John Butt reigns in his most rambunctious side... but revels in the invention of the contrapuntal lines and fully embraces the keyboard's emancipation from accompanying role to sparring partner.' The Guardian 


 The interpretations benefit from Butt (Dunedin Consort) and Russell's combined cumulative experience gained over a lifetime of study. Russell's performance explores the colours and emotions present in the music as well as highlighting Bach's good humour and quirkiness. The duo relish the energetic dialogue and astonishingly diverse moods and characters present in Bach's music: from the supremely expressive violin ‘voice' at the opening of the first sonata to the playful rhythmic tricks in the last movement of Sonata No. 4.

Bach's fiendishly complex fugal writing and typically delicious chromaticism is in evidence throughout these hugely enjoyable works. Butt's informative booklets notes highlight the historical significance of these sonatas in which Bach introduces many of the fundamental features of an essentially new genre.

The Sunday Times
' Russell's beautifully polished playing reveals an affecting relish for the music's searching expressivity, while Butt offers shapely, crisply articulated contributions...'

The Strad
The Strad Recommends: 'Intellectual challenge and a spirit of Empfindsamkeit animate these magnificent new recordings...'

Buxton Advertiser
'Yet the highlight of the concert was the two Bach sonatas for violin and harpsichord (BWV 1019 and BWV 1015): they really captured the symmetry and the lucidity of the composer. Their joint performance was sustaining and brilliant.'


Gramophone
'Refreshing...These are immensely likable performances...'

Brompton’s Fine & Rare Instruments
' And so it is therefore hardly surprising that such insight and integrity is to be found in the performance of specialists such as Russell and Butt.'

Artistxite
,,John Butts dynamisches, aber betont kontrapunktisches Cembalo und Lucy Russells flüssiges, vibrato-armes Spiel und der warme Klang ihrer Gagliano-Geige harmonieren dabei exzellent miteinander.''

Early Music Review
'Here Lucy Russell puts her own stamp on the works, giving a spirited and emotional rendering, and for that this recording is worth investing in.'

BBC Radio 3 ‘CD Review’
CD of the Week: 'the recorded sound is very good'

The Guardian
'This is playing rooted in bulletproof scholarship, but the scrunchiest harmonies and most roguish dance rhythms always win out.'
