I'm not much of a fan of sound clips posted on instrument websites. The main reason is that I consider them almost useless as a comparison tool. So much about the sound depends on the recording environment, and with modern sound processing programs, they can be made to sound almost any way one wants.
Still, I get frequent requests for a sound sample, so I've put this one up pending feedback.
This is an excerpt from a live performance. The sound (taken from VHS video of a television broadcast) has not been altered in any way. The soloist did not have a separate microphone, was sitting in the section, and wasn't amplified.
