The Program

Led by conductor JoAnn Falletta, the Irish Chamber Orchestra plays with celebrated flutists Sir James Galway and Lady Jeanne Galway. This US tour marks the 35th anniversary of Sir Galway's American debut, and in the decades since, he has sold millions of records, won numerous accolades, and performed for dignitaries including Queen Elizabeth II and Pope John Paul II. The similarly accomplished Lady Galway joins her husband onstage, where the duo plays matching gold Nagahara flutes commissioned especially for the knight himself.

  • Harty—In Ireland: This evocative fantasy was written by an Irish composer who received his childhood musical training from his father, a village organist.
  • Mozart—Flute Concerto in D Major: Originally penned for the oboe, Mozart's concerto gained an additional sprightly lilt when he reimagined it for the flute.
  • Hammond—Carolan Variations: The Galways join flute-forces on the work, which receives its premiere on this tour.
  • Mendelssohn—Symphony No. 3 in A Minor: James M. Keller of the San Francisco Symphony said of this "Scottish Symphony" that "no listener is likely to be unmoved at the point near the end of the finale when the low woodwinds, horns, and violas . . . swing from simple into compound meter and from minor mode into bright A major to sing out what sounds for all the world like a hymn of victory."
