Sir James Galway, known as "the man with the golden flute," will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.

Joining Galway for the performance is his wife and leading flutist Lady Jeanne Galway and pianist Phillip Moll. The program will feature an eclectic mix of flute repertoire: Sonata for Flute and Piano by Francis Poulenc; Madrigal by Philippe Gaubert; Morceau de Concours by Gabriel Fauré; Introductions and Variations on "Trockne Blumen," D.802 by Franz Schubert; Sonatina in G Major by Antonin Dvorák, Rigoletto Fantasy for Two Flutes, Op. 100 by Albert Franz Doppler; and Brilliant Fantasy on Themes for Georges Bizet's Carmen by Francois Borne.

A pre-performance talk is offered 30 minutes before the performance in the Lied Center's Steinhart Room. Additional information was unavailable at press time.

Galway has made over 60 solo artist recordings, which have sold more than 30 million records.

Coinciding with the tour will be the new album, "My Magic Flute," a Mozart extravaganza featuring Galway, his wife and harpist Catrin Finch. The album will be released Sept. 15.
