One major difference between Bream and Williams (perhaps) is that Bream also played jazz as well as classical and was a keen Django fan. Williams is a superb sight-reader - someone once said that you could splatter ink blobs on a paper and Williams would read it off - but he has admitted quite openly that he can't improvise. Whether this difference affects their ability in the classical arena, I can't say. I like 'em both personally.
