James Galway exudes a leprechaun-like energy and youthful sense of fun, with an unstoppable passion for communicating with audiences. His concert with his wife, Lady Jeanne Galway, ranges from the simple Irish lyricism of Hamilton Harty through to the virtuosic fireworks of the Carmen Fantasie.

Classic FM’s Anne-Marie Minhall, says of tonight’s recommended concert: “The man with the golden flute remains one of the best-known names in classical music. His solo career spans thirty-five years and more than thirty million album sales worldwide.”

Review by  Maggie Cotton, Birmingham Post:

“Irrepressible as always, the ever-youthful Sir James Galway pulled in a full crowd to help along his 70th birthday celebrations this year. Of all artistes he is one who immediately engages with his audience, presenting a wide-ranging programme with quick wit and Irish charm.” …..
