See James Galway at St Martin-in-the-Fields, 30 May 2011

Sir James and Lady Galway give a rare central London appearance alongside the Brandenburg Sinfonia this month at St Martin-in-the-Fields.
St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, is proud to welcome back “the man with the golden flute”, Sir James Galway, and Lady Jeanne Galway on Monday 30 May, 7.30pm. Regarded as the most influential flautist of our time, Sir James has sold over thirty million albums, and has toured internationally. Lady Jeanne is famed for her unique style and elegance that she brings to her performances. Known for its poised vivacity and versatility, the Brandenburg Sinfonia is to join Sir James and Lady Jeanne for a performance in St Martin’s, a venue that boasts splendid architecture and intimate acoustics. The programme will include works ranging from the Classical era to eighteenth century Italian operatic compositions.

Sir James has played for dignitaries including Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II and President Clinton, and has shared stages with an array of entertainers including Ray Charles, Pink Floyd and Elton John. Lady Jeanne’s touring schedule frequently takes her to the major cities in the US, and to numerous cultural capital cities worldwide, where she performs as a soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras. Alongside their impressive performance agenda, the two manage to dedicate their time to conduct masterclasses, commission new works and publish articles that will nurture and encourage younger generations of aspiring flautists.
On Monday 30th of May, we at St Martin’s are proud to host a unique collaboration of talents, when Lady Jeanne and Sir James are to perform together.
