Praised for his “lustrous tone” (Musical America), Italian flutist Giorgio Consolati has performed at Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, Miami’s New World Center and the Beijing China Conservatory. As a soloist, he performed with Alan Gilbert and the Juilliard Orchestra, as well as with the National Repertory Orchestra and the Verdi Conservatory Orchestra.

Passionate about chamber music, Giorgio has performed at the Marlboro Music Festival and the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. He was also heard with the Juilliard School’s AXIOM and New Juilliard Ensemble, and at the contemporary music festival Milano Musica. Giorgio is a top prizewinner of several competitions including the National Society of Arts and Letters Woodwind Competition, the De Lorenzo International Flute Competition, and the Emanuele Krakamp Flute Competition. In 2019 Giorgio has released Tour De Flute, his debut album.
