Sir James Galway

The living legend of the flute, Sir James Galway is regarded as both the supreme interpreter of the classical flute repertoire and a consummate entertainer whose appeal crosses all musical boundaries.
Sir James has made himself a modern musical master whose virtuosity on the flute is equaled only by his limitless ambitions and vision. Through his extensive touring, over 30 million albums sold and his frequent international television appearances, Sir James has endeared himself to millions worldwide and is a tireless promoter of the arts.
One of the busiest men in classical music, the 2013 season sees Galway appearing all over the world in concert. Engagements include a tour of Italy, Switzerland and South America, concerts in Russia with Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists. Following this will be “The Legacy Tour” with Sir James and friends, stopping at major cities throughout the US, including New York, Boston, Washington DC and Los Angeles. Spring will see Sir James performing back in Europe before touring Israel and ending the season back in the UK.
Alongside his busy performing schedule he makes time to share his wisdom and experience with the young through the International Masterclass Series he holds each year with his wife, Lady Jeanne Galway, in Switzerland. Through these, and the numerous other classes they hold worldwide throughout the year, they are able to have a hands on mentoring to the students they meet throughout their work.
