I also love Patrick Gallois for anything baroque or pre-classical (like CPE Bach, etc.).
THAT's the name I've been looking for forever!! I fell in love with his recording of Mozart's Concerto in G. He's the French flutist, right? I mixed him up with James Galway because of the slight similarities with the last name. Thank you so much!

Yes, he's French. But the similarity between the names Galway and Gallois ends there. They are, IMO, about as far apart on the flute spectrum as far as playing style goes :-).

who is the best flutist in the world !!! or who are best flutists !! id liek to know your ideas plz !
This is a purely subjective response, but I must say that my favorite has always been Rampal. Although I now live in Toronto, I am a former New Yorker and used to make the annual pilgrimage to the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Centre just to hear him perform. It was always magical, he had such a beautiful sound and a wonderful presence.

Since then, I have added many others to that list: Paula Robison, James Galway (of course), Doriot Antony-Dwyer (of BSO), and others.

Amir - Welcome to the forum! Since no one's yet responded, the best thing would be to check out Amazon or your fave music store's website. That will give you the best idea in the shortest time.

...and while I'm here, I'm going to add a very emphatic vote for Peter-Lukas Graf (see pic on left). Two votes in fact, because he deserves them.

...and whoever mentioned James Galway, wash your mouth out with soap and water...

Just because you dont like him, doesnt mean that he isnt an amazing musician. And, it doesnt mean that you have to be rude about it, because [believe it or not] many people DO like him. So, just be careful about how you say things on this board, because if you continue like this, then sooner rather than later you are going to offend someone on here. Then, it will escalate into an arguement that wastes everyone's time.

I personally like James Galway, or at least have a lot of respect for him. Even though his style isnt quite my taste, his is still a hugely talented musician, and his technique is impeccable.

So, even though this was rude, as of right now, it is no cause for argument. Just be careful what and how you say things in the future.

Tsk, tsk... Don't start moanin' at me... I ain't your mother. The remark was meant to be (slightly) tongue in cheek and I presumed (mistake!) that most people would take it in that spirit. I admit my sense of humour may take a bit of getting used to, but I really can't see why you felt the need to spit your dummy out over it. Anyway, I'm going to assume that you've reached the age where you can go to the john by yourself, so I'm sure you'll get over it.

But hey, I'm BAD with or without my attitude...

then evidently your type of humor doesnt come across well over the internet. I was merely warning you. I wasnt offended at all by it, but the words you used were a little bit distasteful. Besides, personal attacks do nothing more than waste my time, so your 'going to the john' comment was just wasted energy because I honestly dont care.... or maybe this was another tongue in cheek comment.... either way... it doesnt matter.

Shame on me for trying to warn others and try to keep them from making the same mistakes I have made. I wont try to help anyone in the future again if they cant handle it :? ...

As for this little 'spat' I am finished. I am not going to waste my time arguing with someone I have never met before :roll: . Just keep in mind that often, our tone does not carry well when put into words, so just be careful about how you word things. Use emoticons to help when possible if you are doing any sort of tongue in cheek or sarcastic humor [just as further prevention not to accidentally offend anyone who might misunderstand you].

Later. :wink:

I agree with most of those, but how could anyone have forgotten Emmanuel Pahud????

I've had the honor to meet Bennett, and not only is he a fantastic flutist, but he's a great person...Very friendly, and pretty entertaining. If you get the chance, try to talk to him after a concert!
