You didn't leave James Galway's concert Saturday night at Veterans Wadsworth Theater feeling especially well nourished. Dictated somewhat by circumstances, the program was light and very safe and, for one considerable stretch, downright boring. Someone had decided that it was a good idea for the lovable Irish flutist to tour with the Tokyo String Quartet, thereby handcuffing him to an insubstantial repertory.

Flutist James Galway's eyes sparkle at the mention of his operatic debut in the title role of Rossini's "The Thieving Magpie" in its first U.S. performance in this century. "I didn't study birds for years to do this. I studied music," said Galway, 50, who is basing his stage movements on his observation of the chattering, black and white bird.

The last time Irish flutist James Galway brought his golden flute to town was two years ago to play Mozart with the San Diego Symphony at the inaugural gala of Symphony Hall. If the local orchestra's fortunes have ebbed since that heady event, Galway's stock has continued to soar. Televised appearances with the Boston Pops and a wide range of recordings have brought him a huge following outside the classical music mainstream.

I take umbrage with Steve Hochman's Feb. 13 review of the Chieftains concert at the Wadsworth Theater. Mr. Hochman insists that all Irish classical music belongs in a smoke-filled pub and that any formal dressing or chamber orchestra qualities of the arrangements limits the audience involvement with the music. Can I expect James Galway's next concert to be in Molly Malone's pub on Fairfax Avenue? I was surprised to see the Chieftains reviewed in a pop column. Yes, I know of their collaboration with Van Morrison.
