Joshua Smith
Flute

Grammy-nominated flutist Joshua Smith captivates audiences with his “superlative control” and “breathtaking sensitivity. Hailed by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “undoubtedly one of the most scrupulously artistic and versatile flutists in our midst”, Smith came to national attention at the age of 20 when he was appointed principal flute of The Cleveland Orchestra and welcomed by the press as a “flute phenomenon.” Today, he is equally at home as a leading soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, and educator.

Mr. Smith has appeared as soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra on numerous occasions, performing works ranging from Bach to Takemitsu, including the concertos of Mozart, Penderecki, and Nielsen. In May 2011, Smith was the featured soloist for the world-premiere performance of Jörg Widmann’s flute concerto, Flute en Suite for flute and orchestral groups, commissioned by the orchestra and written exclusively for him.
