71CD + 2DVD box set in a lift-off lid box with hard cover bound book


James Galway is universally regarded as the supreme interpreter of classical flute repertoire, but his playing also crosses over into all musical genres. Now for the first time ever, in celebration of his 75th birthday, all of Sir James’ recordings for RCA Red Seal are being issued together in a single box set, The Complete RCA Album Collection. Born in Belfast, Galway studied in London and Paris and enjoyed a prestigious orchestral career in London before taking up the coveted position of principle flute with the Berlin Philharmonic under Herbert von Karajan. Galway left Berlin to pursue a solo career that has made him one of the iconic musical figures of modern times. He is idolized by audiences around the world and has continuously performed with the world’s leading orchestras. His recordings have sold over 30 million copies and have won numerous awards.

On September 17th, he will receive one of the most prestigious honours, a Gramophone Lifetime Achievement Award. In a career spanning four decades, James Galway: The Complete RCA Album Collection features every important concerto and solo music piece composed for the flute including Pachelbel’s Canon, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusic, Clair de lune, Flight of the Bumblebee and much more. The box set also features traditional favorites from the Britain and America, including “Danny Boy” and “Amazing Grace,” great hits from Broadway and Hollywood, music by Andrew Lloyd Weber, Henry Mancini and Elton John, plus Christmas carols from all over the world.

With James Galway performing the whole spectrum of classics from Baroque to modern, including virtually every important concerto and other solo music composed for his instrument, plus flute transcriptions from every corner of the repertoire – and the globe – the range and comprehensiveness of this new Sony Classical set is staggering. Here is James Galway in three centuries of great music from Bach, Handel,
Vivaldi and Mozart to Prokofiev, Ibert, Nielsen, Sir Lennox Berkeley, and John Corigliano. The “Pachelbel Canon”, Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”, Gluck’s “Dance of the Blessed Spirits” and Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” are all here, as are “Clair de lune”, the “Flight of the Bumblebee”, “Thais Meditation”, “Carmen Fantasy”, “Sabre Dance”, “Barber Adagio” and much, much more.

You’ll find traditional favourites from the British Isles and America – including “Danny Boy” and “Amazing Grace” – beautiful melodies from Japan and Australia, as well as Indian ragas and Christmas carols from all over the world. There are great hits from Broadway and Hollywood: music by Elton John, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Henry Mancini; “Moon River”, “Over the Rainbow” and the Love Theme from Titanic. There are songs by Paul Simon and, of course, John Denver’s “Annie’s Song”.

Sir James’s list of collaborators is a musical Who’s Who in its own right: names like Martha Argerich, Cleo Laine, André Previn, Neville Marriner, Lorin Maazel and Michael Tilson Thomas as well as Galway’s wife and fellow flautist Jeanne Galway, the Canadian Brass, Tokyo String Quartet and, needless to say, the Chieftains. Enjoy the fruits of a unique recording career spanning almost four decades in Sony Classical 71-CD collection of the complete recordings of Sir James Galway.
