Abstract:

"The internationally acclaimed, widely beloved flutist reflects on his storied career. Flutist Sir James Galway is one of the top musicians of our time, with a dazzling career that has spanned five decades and many genres of music. Now he celebrates his seventieth birthday with a look back on his incredible career, during which he has traveled around the world many times over and made countless friends, including legends from the worlds of classical and popular music. He reflects on the challenges he faced coming from the harsh environs of working-class Belfast and making the decision to go solo as a flutist, as well as the triumphs as made his way to top of his profession. Offers a rare, personal glimpse at the life of a modern musical master whose work has ranged across the musical spectrum with collaborators as diverse as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Chieftains, and Pink Floyd Includes delightful stories from Galway's career of more than fifty years Shares the challenges of touring and of melding public and private life. By turns witty and informative, engaging and inspiring, The Man with the Golden Flute is a captivating read for fans of James Galway and his music"--Provided by publisher.
