Noémi Győri is quickly establishing a name as one of the most outstanding flautists of her generation. She is currently the only emerging artist of the Miyazawa Flutes in Europe and is the only Hungarian musician on the artist roster of the Swiss Global Artistic Foundation, which supports emerging artists of exceptional talent.

Noemi gave her Carnegie Hall debut in October 2011 as a First Prize Winner of the Alexander Buono International Flute Competition and was also recently awarded the European Cultural Prize for Young Artists, following the paths of former laureates like Anne-Sophie Mutter, Julia Fischer or Sol Gabetta.

She has been three consequent times chosen ‘Annie Fischer Scholar’ of the Philharmony Budapest, and besides that is also artist of the Hungarofest Klassz Foundation and the Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Foundations in Vienna (since 2007) and Munich (since 2008). Besides being very active as a soloist and chamber musician, Noemi is regularly playing as a guest in outstanding orchestras such as the BBC Philharmonic and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (Vienna State Opera), participating in unique projects as the premiere of Aribert Reimann’s Medea opera production. Since 2008 she is principal flutist of the Orchester Jakobplatz München, guest principal of Georgian Sinfonietta and the Chamber Orchestra of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra.

Noémi was recently appointed to lead her own flute studio at the Junior department of the Royal Northern College of Music. She has given masterclasses in Georgia, Germany, Switzerland, Taiwan and lead successful workshops for the master students of the Royal Northern College of Music.

She has received twice (in 2006 and 2009) the Performers’ Prize of the Artisjus Music Foundation Hungary for her outstanding performance of Hungarian contemporary compositions, and is a scholarship holder of numerous outstanding institutions (DAAD Germany, Brannen-Cooper Fund USA, Stiftung der Rotarier Germany, just to name a few).
