5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and Definitive December 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Mozart done well. I listen to this and try to pick out faults and reasons to write a slew of smart-sounding interjectons as to why this recording doesn't deserve five stars... and here I am, still trying. Galway is a bit of a commercial sellout in the fluteworld. His tone is gorgeous, his interpretatons cute, shimmering, and charming. He plays for the money and for the crowd. So in my quest to find a legitamate classical Galway recording I stumbled apon this gem of a disc. He sings the very familiar solos in a deleightfully charming way that no flutist should ever try to imitate. His tone is strong, singing, and breathtaking. His phrases are well communicated and stylish. His articulation is incredibly clean and precise. Intonatoin flawless. Technique amazing. His cadenzas are pleasing. They are a perfect example of Galway's style and charming mentality. Yes, James Galway and Sir Neville Mariner do wonderful justice to Mozart's three flute concertos. This disc is an unregretable buy for anyone. It is a perfect example of Mozart played well. The only comparably extensive and fulfilling Mozart flute recording I have heard is Emmanuel Pahud's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good exapmle of Mozart's spirit December 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
After listening to these pieces, it is hard to believe that Mozart hated the flute, at least that what it said in the liner notes. It isn't important weather or not Mozart liked or disliked the flute. What is important is that he wrote these beautiful pieces for that instrument. The music on this disc, especially the Concerto for Flute and harp K.299, gliters with Mozart's enthusiasm and optimistic energy. Combine this with James Galway, Marisa Robles (the only harpist that I know of), and the expert Mozartean Neville Marriner, what you get is a great Mozartean experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concert's - favorites- a must for all March 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have this CD and love it. Concerto in G Major is great. I believe the sheet music has been put out in a version by Galway and so probably has the same cadenza's. These concertos are also in "24 Flute Concert Studies from J. S. Bach's Works and Famous Flute Solos", that I got from Southern Music Company a few years ago for $9.95, 160 pages. Contains 25+ major works including Bach's Suite in B minor, as well as all three of these concertos. These concertos are Mozart at his best, and Galway is great. If you can find a copy of sheet music for Mozart's Sonata 301K for violin adapted for flute somewhere, it's great too, but not on this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Galway for inspiration August 29, 2013
By Maria
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
James Galway is the top flute player in the world, and Mozart is of course Mozart.
I choose this prodect because there is a little girl, called Sarah, 11 years old,
in Hungary, and she is keen to play the flute (without any parental encouragement).
So she listens to this CD at bedtime instead of a fairy tale.
I hope she will keep up playing the flute and will became a great artist
