Release Notes

This CD contains both ADD and DDD recordings.
Prior to launching an international solo career, Belfast-born James Galway was the principal flutist for Herbert Von Karajan's Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Karajan was lucky to have such a stellar performer in the orchestra's first flute chair, while Galway sharpened his craft under the demanding maestro's baton. After leaving the orchestra in 1975, Galway has enjoyed a glorious solo career that's been well documented by a series of best-selling recordings on the RCA Victor label. This recording highlights the best of his RCA solo recordings.
Galway is a master of any style and this recording presents repertoire spanning nearly three centuries; from the Baroque exuberance of Vivaldi and Bach to the harmonic daring of Debussy and glossy splendor of Khachaturian. Most appealing are Galway's chamber music performances, collaborating with such luminary artists as Martha Argerich, Marisa Robles and the Tokyo String Quartet.
