Biography

Flautist Georgia Browne began her musical life in Perth, Western Australia where she was given the opportunity to try replicas of historical flutes. Like many before her, she then made the pilgrimage to The Netherlands to specialise in early music at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, studying with flute teachers Kate Clark and Barthold Kuijken.

After graduating with distinction, Georgia was let loose on the European concert scene, starting with an exciting performance of a Vivaldi flute concerto in front of royalty, politicians and a live radio microphone at the Palazzo Quirinale in Rome.

Since that momentous debut, Georgia has been in demand as a soloist, orchestral musician and guest tutor across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. She has performed with most of the established UK period instrument ensembles and is a regular guest of the more recently formed Ensemble Pygmalion and Le Cercle de l’Harmonie in France as well as Capella Cracoviensis in Poland.

She is a member of progressive Icelandic chamber ensemble Nordic Affect with whom she released a recording of flute music by Carl Friedrich Abel. Another chamber music highlight is her collaboration with British tenor Nicholas Mulroy and Ensemble 42 in their exploration of obbligato arias from the sacred cantata repertoire.

An enthusiastic educator, Georgia teaches flute at the University of Southampton and has been guest Baroque flute tutor at Birmingham University and Birmingham Conservatoire alongside her private coaching in London. Each year she hosts a five day Baroque Flute Summer school in Cordes-Sur-Ciel, France.
