The Dunedin Consort is delighted to announce that John Butt is to be the fifth recipient of the Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Prize

The prize is given annually to an outstanding contributor in the field of Bach performance and scholarship, and John joins a very distinguished roster of winners - Christoph Wolff, András Schiff, John Eliot Gardiner and Peter Schreier.

Commenting on the honour, John said

'This is great news, not just for me, but also for the Scottish musical scene, the University of Glasgow and, of course, the Dunedin Consort - it's a huge reward for all our work in cultivating an ensemble not merely of international quality, but as a world leader in Baroque performance.'

Congratulations John!
