Sir James Galway with
Lady Jeanne Galway, flutes

 

With over 30 million copies of 98 recordings sold worldwide, Sir James Galway is virtually a household name, globally renowned as the supreme interpreter of the classical flute repertoire and a passionate voice for music education.

“I do not consider myself as having mastered the flute, but I get a real kick out of trying.” So says one of the world’s most famous flutists, whose early career included the coveted position of solo flutist with the Berlin Philharmonic under Herbert von Karajan, and who has spent over four decades as a renowned soloist of both classical and crossover fare. Returning for his first UMS recital since 2008, this Northern Ireland native celebrates his 80th birthday alongside his wife, Lady Jeanne Galway, a recognized flutist in her own right.

PROGRAM

Repertoire will include works of Poulenc, Fauré, Chaminade, Doppler, Irish Folk Songs, and many other audience favorites for which Sir Galway has become famous.
