Concert Flute player Tami Krausz is known for her engaging, versatile performance on 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th Century Historical Flutes. Her live- concerts as well as her recordings have been praised by a vast audience of listeners and by press critics internationally.
Born in Israel, Krausz began her musical studies on the flute at age 8. Exposed to Early Music in the 1990's in Jerusalem, Krausz was coached and encouraged by leading European figures in the field to proceed with the truly fascinating art of Historical Performance Practice. It was in this context that Tami received her first Baroque Flute as a grant from the America- Israel Cultural Foundation. This flute took her to Holland, where she completed her Master's degree with the highest distinction under Prof. Barthold Kuijken at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
Today, Tami can be heard freqently as a solo, chamber and principal orchestral flutist in the most celebrated concert venues and festivals, with some of Europe's leading groups, including Le Concert de la Loge, L’orchestre des Champs Élysées, Les Inventions, Holland Baroque, B'Rock, Vox Luminis, Academia Daniel, Capella Augustina, OH! Historical Orchestra, and Capella Cracoviensis. She has also had the privilege of performing under such maestri as Philippe Herreweghe, Ton Koopman, Skip Sempé, René Jacobs, Julien Chauvin, Raphael Pichon, and Jeremy Rohrer, as well as playing alongside such soloists as Pianist Alexander Melnikov, Soprano Sandrine Piau, Soprano Claron McFadden and Countertenor Philippe Jaroussky.
Tami's vast repertoire ranges from grandiose Romantic Operas, through all sorts of Baroque, Classical, and Romantic chamber music, and including such intimate works as Telemann's solo Fantasias for solo Flute. Additionally, she has an wide-ranging discography that has enjoyed unanimous critical acclaim. A recent collaboration with fortepianist Shuann Chai resulted in the recording of a Beethoven-Kuhlau album which was released on the Ramée label in March 2020 to enthusiastic reviews.
Tami serves as a Jury member for the Early Music Department in The Hague Conservatory. The large range of instruments on which she performs includes copied flutes made by Rudolph Tutz, Claire Soubairon, Roberto Bando, Philip Alain Dupre and Rod Cameron, as well instruments from her own collection of original French, German, Dutch, and English flutes dating from the Baroque to the late Romantic eras.
