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 Master 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 the winner of the 2018 Juilliard Concerto Competition, Giorgio performed Pulitzer Prize winner Christopher Rouse’s Flute Concerto in David Geffen Hall with Maestro Alan Gilbert. Giorgio was also heard as a soloist in the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto with the National Repertory Orchestra conducted by Carl Topilow. In addition to his solo appearances, Giorgio is a laureate of many competitions, including the Emanuele Krakamp, Leonardo De Lorenzo, the Alexander & Buono and the National Society of Arts and Letters Woodwind Competition 2018.
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 and David Zinman.
An avid chamber musician, Giorgio has performed in Lincoln Center’s Morse and Paul Hall, at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and at the prestigious Marlboro Music Festival. Also passionate about contemporary music, he performs with the AXIOM and the New Juilliard Ensemble. Native of Italy, Giorgio is the first flutist in the Milan Conservatory of Music’s 211-year history to graduate with top honors.
