Howard Davis, 1940-2008 was widely respected as an outstanding violinist, musician and quartet leader, and as an influential teacher and mentor. Perhaps best known for leading the Alberni quartet where he charmed audiences around the world and achieved numerous accolades and awards. A phenominal talent and as Curtis Price notes 'the greatest tribute to Howard's memory is simply to look around us and see how many of the country's finest players were his students'.
