Notes From Hidden Britain: Northern Ireland
But there’s one man who might take issue with Barry Douglas being labelled Belfast's greatest musical son…<br></br> There's no one prouder of Northern Ireland's heritage than the man with the golden flute Sir James Galway. As a boy he played in the city's famous marching bands. It was clear he had a gift for the flute and in no time he was studying in London. He began a career in orchestras, culminating with him being principal flute in the legendary Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan was fiercely ambitious and single-minded, and so is James Galway. To Karajan's dismay, in 1975, Galway quit the orchestra to become the world’s most famous flute soloist.
