Praised for his “full tone, exacting articulation and interpretive intelligence” (New York Classical Review) and for his “expertise with pacing and technique” (MusicalAmerica), Giorgio Consolati is completing his Bachelor of Music degree at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Carol Wincenc, where he is the first recipient of the prestigious Kovner Fellowship ever awarded to a flutist.
As a member of the Juilliard Orchestra, Giorgio has served as principal flute in major concert halls in New York City including Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall and the Peter Jay Sharp Theater under the batons of Alan Gilbert, Gianandrea Noseda, Peter Oundjian, Speranza Scappucci, Gerard Schwarz and David Zinman. A particular highlight was his performance of Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune under the baton of David Robertson at David Geffen Hall. Giorgio has performed with the National Repertory Orchestra, where he was also heard as a soloist in the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto.
An avid chamber musician, Giorgio has performed with various groups in Juilliard’s Morse and Paul Hall, as well as during ChamberFest. He has also participated in the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and was recently invited to perform at the prestigious Marlboro Music Festival for summer 2018. Also passionate about contemporary music, Giorgio and regularly performs with Juilliard’s contemporary ensemble AXIOM, led by Jeffrey Milarsky. A native of Milan, Italy, Giorgio was the first undergraduate flutist in its’ 210-year history to graduate with top honors from Milan’s Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory.
