Tea with Netty #4: John Butt

Organist, conductor and leading expert on the music of JS Bach, John Butt gets the 'Tea with Netty' treatment.

John Butt is both Gardiner Professor of Music at the University of Glasgow and musical director of Edinburgh’s period instrument orchestra, Dunedin Consort and when he’s not doing all of that, he is also one of our Principal artists.

Netty draws out some hilarious anecdotes and reveals the man behind the towering intellect. Get a brew, sit back and enjoy.


Tea with Netty is our podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
