Praised for his “lustrous tone” (Musical America), Italian flutist Giorgio Consolati has performed at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center and the Beijing China Conservatory. As a soloist, he performed with Alan Gilbert and the Juilliard Orchestra in New York as well as with the National Repertory Orchestra and the Verdi Conservatory Orchestra in Milan. Giorgio has served as the associate principal flute of Symphony in C and worked under the batons of John Adams, Gianandrea Noseda and David Robertson. Highlights of Giorgio’s upcoming projects include performances at the Marlboro Festival in the summer of 2022, a solo recital in Milano Italy, and a six-US city tour with Musicians from Marlboro in 2023.
Passionate about chamber music, Giorgio has performed at the Marlboro Music Festival, Avaloch Farm Music Institute, and the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. He has also performed at the distinguished contemporary festival Milano Musica, where his performances were broadcasted by the premiere Italian classical radio station Rai Radio 3, and with the Juilliard School’s AXIOM and New Juilliard Ensemble.
A native of Milan, Giorgio is the first flutist in the Verdi Conservatory’s history to graduate with top honors and honorable mention. As a proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship, Giorgio received both his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees at The Juilliard School studying with Carol Wincenc. He has also earned an Artist Diploma from the Peabody Institute studying with Marina Piccinini.
