    Default Looking for (popular) good flute players

    I'm looking for popular flute players that put out CD's and are good performers. Could anyone give any recommendations that I might look at?

    EDIT: Sharon Bezaly has been my "go to" performer and I like her playing but I was wondered who other performers .

    I always enjoy James Galway's playing. Might be popular but nothing wrong with that.

    Off the top of my head, my favorite flute players--both past & present--would include Marcel Moyse (historical), Gaston Crunelle (historical), William Kincaid (of the old Philadelphia Orchestra), William Bennett (of The Academy of St. Martin's in the Fields, etc.), Roger Bourdin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbAnNcg5Cjg, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Julius Baker, Michel Debost:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na8zoWTY8lY, Emmanuel Pahud, Sharon Bezaly, Manuela Wiesler (excellent in the flute music of Andres Jolivet), Severino Gazzelloni (of I Musici), Patrick Gallois:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yotCPlilQ2w, Marc Hantai (period), Barthold Kuijken (period), Lisa Beznosiuk (period), Alexis Kossenko (period, of L'Arte dei Suonatori & Les Ambassadeurs), William Hazelzet (period), Ashley Solomon (period, of the group Florilegium), Robert Aitken (of the Mirage Quintet:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O70w8pM5SRE), Timothy Hutchins (of the Montreal Chamber Players & Montreal S.O.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pR9C...SF0oIZ-_oZuJBo), James Galway, Susan Milan (her Chandos recordings in the French repertory are wonderful, especially of the music of flautist/composer Philippe Gaubert:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMBAztyKQDg ), Jonathan Snowden:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABsef5QffWU, Tatjana Ruhland, Juliette Hurel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhgnCoFuZgg, and Philippe Bernold.

    You should be able to hear examples of all their playing on You Tube.

    P.S.--Oh yes, I've also liked the flutist in the Nash Ensemble--I believe her name is Philippa Davies.

    Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. After I posted my question, somehow I got confused exactly where I posted it. I will now go through and hear some of the best. Thanks again.
