“These performances invite comparisons with entries by Furtwängler, Böhm, Szell, Karajan rather than figures of lesser stature.” American Record Guide

“An outstanding talent. Butt is absolutely the master of Strauss’ dramatic style.” Robert Marsh, Chicago Sun-Times

“Butt performs with brilliant imagination and dramatic command.” Music and Musicians “Yondani Butt conducts with much verve and accurate colour.” The Financial Times, UK

"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
