John Butt & Lucy Russell - J.S. Bach: Violin and Harpsichord Sonatas - The Sunday Times

Even within Bach's vast canon, nothing surpasses the six violin and keyboard sonatas for inventiveness and eloquence, and in these period-style performances, Russell and Butt prove impressive exponents. Russell's beautifully polished playing reveals an affecting relish for the music's searching expressivity, while Butt offers shapely, crisply articulated contributions in his dual role as provider of impetus-giving continuo and - because these are essentially trio sonatas - as second melodist.
