What about berceuse?

Up to now I'm curious whether to pronounce the W in Horowitz as Horowitz or Horovitz.

Berceuse is hard to explain, but if you go to this site, there is an explanation for the pronunciation and a recording.

I usually say Horowitz with a W like in the word "wild." I've heard it as a V, also, but mostly as a W.
