Georgia Morse is a young Anglo-Italian cellist who studied with Andrea Nannoni at the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini in Florence, from which she graduated with honours in 2017, and then with Mats Lidstrom at the Royal Academy of Music, where she completed her MA in Cello Performance in 2019. She was frequently chosen as principal cellist for the Orchestra Sinfonica Luigi Cherubini before being selected as principal cellist for the Orchestra Giovanile Italiana (Italian Youth Orchestra) in 2015. In this capacity, she performed with artists of the calibre of Jeffrey Tate, Enrico Bronzi, Lorenza Borrani and Stanislav Kochanovsky, while guest conductors at the Royal Academy included Semyon Bychkov, Edward Gardner and Jack Van Steen.
As a soloist, Georgia has twice performed Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Orchestra del Carmine and Brahms’ Double Concerto with the Orchestra Cherubini. She has also performed as a soloist in many locations in Italy and the UK, with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Dallapiccola. Her range and experience in chamber music are similarly wide. While at the Royal Academy, she was a member of a string quartet specially chosen for tuition from Alex Redington, first violin of the Doric Quartet. Since then, she has also enjoyed playing with solo guitar, solo singer, and groups including instruments such as piano accordian, bandoneon, bassoon, as well as the more usual piano. Since 2016, she has been collaborating with the Associazione Etruria Musica, for which she regularly plays at events in the summer months, with a wide-ranging repertoire that includes pop and jazz. In the UK, she has played on the sets of various films.
Georgia was awarded the Royal Academy’s teaching diploma (LRAM) in 2020 and for a number of years has enjoyed teaching music and cello to students of all ages. She currently lives in London.
