JAMES GALWAY Wings of Song 4775085

Sir James Galway is in line for a new classical crossover success with the September 13 release of "Wings of Song" . . . Galway, once marketed as "the man with the golden flute", has the potential to reach a large audience . . .

I remember first hearing him in Karajan's Berlin Phil and being bowled over by his ravishing sound and fabulously pure intonation . . . It's wonderful to hear Galway still playing with such control and luminescent tone . . . 73 minutes of slow, dreamy music.

The pearly, ultra-smooth sound of Galway's flute certainly conveys the lovliness of these arias.

Wenn es einer verstanden hat, höchste Meisterschaft auf dem Instrument und vorbehaltlose Akzeptanz im Klassik-Olymp ganz unverkrampft mit Entertainer-Qualitäten zu verbinden, dann James Galway.

Sir James Galway es uno de los mejores flautistas de la actualidad, y uno de los pocos cuyo nombre es un reclamo inmediato para los melómanos. ... Galway sabe sobreponerse a la fuerza de la obra original, realzando, con respeto, aquellos aspectos más minúsculos y desapercibidos de ésta, hasta no dejar un solo acorde de la partitura sin mostrar en toda su plenitud.
