He has performed and broadcast all the major concerti for RTE and the BBC. In recital he has regularly toured in Europe and China. As well as often performing the formidable solo sonatas of Ligeti and Kodály, he has recorded the suites by Britten and Bach for Warner Classics. Both recordings received outstanding reviews in the UK and international press. William is a member of the Esposito String Quartet.He is passionate about his teaching, is Senior Cello Teacher at the RIAM in Dublin and plays on a fine cello made by Giovanni Grancino in Milan (1690)

“Warner have found a worthy successor to Rostropovich, for whom Britten wrote these three suites... Meticulously played, with the passion and commitment the composer discerned in their dedicatee, these elegant, eloquent pieces could not have been entrusted to a safer pair of hands” The Observer (UK)
