Notes & Reviews:
James Galway is universally regarded as the supreme interpreter of classical flute repertoire, but his playing also crosses over into all musical genres. Now for the first time ever, in celebration of his 75th birthday, all of Sir James' recordings for RCA Red Seal are being issued together in a single box set, The Complete RCA Album Collection. Born in Belfast, Galway studied in London and Paris and enjoyed a prestigious orchestral career in London before taking up the coveted position of principle flute with the Berlin Philharmonic under Herbert von Karajan. Galway left Berlin to pursue a solo career that has made him one of the iconic musical figures of modern times. He is idolized by audiences around the world and has continuously performed with the world's leading orchestras. His recordings have sold over 30 million copies and have won numerous awards. On September 17th he will receive one of the most prestigious honors, a Gramophone Lifetime Achievement Award.
In a career spanning four decades, James Galway: The Complete RCA Album Collection features every important concerto and solo music piece composed for the flute including Pachelbel's Canon, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusic, Clair de lune, Flight of the Bumblebee and much more.
