Subject: RE: virtuosity and traditional music
For what it's worth (and this being just my personal opinion, not much) I didn't much care for what I've heard of Mr. Galway's pennywhistle playing. Though he is to be hailed as one of the great flute players of the world, to my ear, he sounded like he was playing a pennywhistle with flute playing technique. Your opinion may well vary. You may also decide that my opinion in this matter isn't worth argueing about. I may well agree.
I do very much like his classical playing.
