Biography

Flautist Georgia Browne began her musical life in Perth, Western Australia where she was given the opportunity to try replica historical flutes. Smitten with the tone quality and history of these instruments she decided to make the pilgrimage to The Netherlands, to specialise with historical flautists Kate Clark and Barthold Kuijken.

After graduating with distinction from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, Georgia was launched onto the European concert scene in style, with an exciting performance of a Vivaldi flute concerto for live radio broadcast at the Palazzo Quirinale in Rome.

Since that momentous debut in 2004, Georgia has been in demand as a soloist, orchestral musician and guest tutor across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. She has worked with the established UK period instrument ensembles – The English Concert, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Academy of Ancient Music – and is regularly invited to play principal flute with the more recently formed Ensemble Pygmalion in France and Capella Cracoviensis in Poland. She is also a member of progressive Icelandic chamber ensemble Nordic Affect with whom she released a recording of flute music by Carl Friedrich Abel.

An enthusiastic educator, Georgia has taught at the University of Southampton, Birmingham University and Birmingham Conservatoire alongside running a successful private teaching studio. Each year she hosts a residential Baroque Flute Summer School.
