Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra Review: “Butterman’s enthusiasm and dedication to the interpretative details of the works programmed signaled good times ahead. Articulate and talented, with exceptionally clean, crisp and musically sensitive baton work, Butterman proved to have the right stuff for top-drawer music making, right from the start with Brahms’ Variations on a Theme of Joseph Haydn. With a theme, finale and eight variations, Michael Butterman and WSO smoothly and effectively highlighted the many nuances of the contrasting variations, especially accents, that built to a restatement of the opening theme and heroic close.” (The Virginia Gazette, 10/6/22)
