Selected Howard Williams Audio Clips

“These sound-bites are to offer a taste of some of the many repertoire areas I enjoy. They come from a variety of sources, including my friends in the Pécs orchestra, both under their former title and as the present Pannon Philharmonic. Most are from live performances, but the two special rarities were both recorded in the studio – the Requiem by György Lickl (a Hungarian contemporary of Mozart) and my own transcription of Piazzolla’s Grand Tango with the high-voltage electric ‘cello of Kate Price!”
