Flutist Giorgio Consolati is currently pursuing his Master of Music degree at The Juilliard School studying under the guidance of Carol Wincenc. Giorgio is a proud recipient of Juilliard’s prestigious Kovner Fellowship, an award that has been given for the first time to a flutist.
An enthusiastic orchestral player, Giorgio serves in the Juilliard Orchestra and has performed as principal flute in several of the major concert halls of New York City including Carnegie Hall, David Geffen Hall and Alice Tully Hall. He worked with notable conductors such as Alan Gilbert, David Robertson, Peter Oundjian, David Zinman and Gianandrea Noseda. A passionate performer of contemporary repertoire, Giorgio plays with the AXIOM Ensemble and has performed in the Milano Musica Festival in 2011 and 2012 with radio broadcasts on RAI RADIO 3, one of the main Italian radio stations. Giorgio has also won several competitions including the First Prize at the Concorso Flautistico Emanuele Krakamp, the Third Prize (first not assigned) at the 9th International Flute Competition Leonardo De Lorenzo, the First Prize at the Golden Classical Awards Music International Competition.
Giorgio has commanded and perfected the flute repertoire ranging from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic to the Contemporary periods. He has performed in the masterclasses of renowned flutists such as Sir James Galway, Maxence Larrieu and Marina Piccinini, and has garnered much praise for his technical and musical skills. During the past summers, Giorgio performed with the National Repertory Orchestra, where he also performed Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto, and at the Norfolk-Yale Chamber Music Festival.
Born and raised in Italy, Giorgio studied at the “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory in Milano, where he was the first undergraduate flutist to graduate with top marks, honors and special mention in 2012.
