Overview

James Galway Plays Flute Concertos

This 2011 set of discs reflects more than 20 years of recording work by James Galway, with nearly 40 concertos for solo flute and a number of concertos for flute plus other solo instruments. With it, anyone can begin to see how diverse Galway's musical interests are. Not only do the concertos range from Bach and Vivaldi to Carl Nielsen and Joaquín Rodrigo, the final work is a concerto by John Mayer from 1981 subtitled "A Circle of Râga Music." In that and the concertos like the Rodrigo, the Devienne, and the Stamitz -- in short, those known better among flutists than among the general audience -- are where Galway really can show off his virtuosity on his instrument. Galway simultaneously acts as conductor and soloist in a few cases, such as in the six Vivaldi concertos. Many listeners will recognize the melodies in some of those Vivaldi concertos, as well as in Mozart's "Concerto for flute and harp" and Bach's "Orchestral Suite No. 2." It's a collection bound to please fans of Galway and of the flute.
