Perfect background music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is great. It is wonderful "background" music. I work out of my home and I play this CD a lot while I am working because it offers soothing background music that is not at all distracting. James Gallway is very talented. This CD offers many familiar classical pieces that most anyone will recognize."
A Masterpiece

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a college student and I am majoring in music education. My primary instrument is the flute, and my goal is to attain all of the pieces that I have studied. By buying this CD with many different selections has saved me the aggravation of purchasing many different CDs. James Galway is an extremely talented man, and this collection shows off his capabilities with flare. There are selections from all of the major musical periods such as the Baroque and the Classical which makes for a wonderful variety. This CD is worth every penny."
Bounty of Flute's Best From One of Best Flutist
rodboomboom | Dearborn, Michigan United States | 02/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being married to a flutist allows me to hear some of the greatest works written for this beautiful instrument. Here one of its greatest virtuosos records his favorites from its reportoire.

Gallway performs superb renditions of 29 of his favorites, from Albinoni and Bach to Vivaldi. Much of what he plays most are already familiar with but will enjoy his passionate interpretation even then, e.g. CPE Bach's Flute Concertos and Vivaldi's four seasons selections. The fun comes from hearing other that some might not be that familiar with: Galuppi's Flute Concerto in D or Field's Nocturne in B Flat.

These are all enhanced by Gallway's personal notes on each selection, which is truly a wonderful addition to the liner notes.

This two CD set is truly a wonderful addition to all who love the sweet and flowing tone of flute well played accompanied by excellent orchestration and other instruments. Top shelf!"
