Curiosity, fearlessness and versatility carry Lina Andonovska’s artistry around the globe. Andonovska is a rare breed in the flute world; a name that you’ll discover on both the pages of Rolling Stone and the Australian Chamber Orchestra roster, she has not only cultivated partnerships with leading composers including Louis Andriessen, Donnacha Dennehy and flautist Claire Chase, but also deep community ties from Timor Leste to Tokyo’s incubator Wonder Site.

Recently appointed as flautist of 4-time Grammy Award-winning ensemble ‘eighth blackbird,’ she has collaborated with groups including Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Recherche, Crash Ensemble, Deutsches Kammerorchester, stargaze and Southern Cross Soloists. She is critically acclaimed for her interpretation of new music; Rolling Stone Magazine hailed her performance at Bang On A Can Summer Festival as “superbly played, (ranging) from sustained ‘somebody-please-get-that-tea-kettle’ squeaks to the flit and flutter of its beautifully lilting trills...”
As an orchestral player she has worked with some of the world’s leading orchestras including the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia and most of Australia’s symphony orchestras. As concerto soloist she has performed with Deutsches Kammerorchester, Orchestra Victoria, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia.
Performance credits include a solo performance at the Melbourne International Arts Festival that was noted as “re-defining the act of going solo “ (The Age), Brett Dean’s flute concerto ‘Siduri Dances’ with Deutsches Kammerorchester, Tokyo Experimental Festival Grand Prize, appearances with stargaze at the Edinburgh International Festival, Berlin’s acclaimed Unerhörte Musik series and a solo recital at Musica Nova Helsinki. Lina released her debut solo album with Diatribe Records label in early 2020, which was described as “brimming with energy and bold textures, though marked throughout by nuance. A name to watch out for.” (All About Jazz).

“A Way A Lone A Last, (features) five new works written with (Lina’s) unique aesthetic and technical abilities in mind...The recording is stunning: a rich, resonant setting for luscious sounds, all of which results in an exciting, beautifully performed and very impressive exploration of flute timbre and sonic possibility.” - ★★★★ Limelight Magazine, Album Review of A Way A Lone A Last

“Contemporary yet timeless, A Way A Lone A Last is an absorbing blend of cerebral concept and visceral, playful execution. Andonovoska's fine debut is brimming with energy and bold textures, though marked throughout by nuance. A name to watch out for.” - ★★★★ All About Jazz, Album Review of A Way A Lone A Last “Redefining the art of going solo...(Andonovska’s) stage ability is something to behold...Andonovska does not simply ask for your attention, she demands it. a holistically excellent performer at the helm.” ★★★★ The Age,
Melbourne International Arts Festival review

"We are treated to a brief yet brilliant rendition, largely thanks to ... flautist Lina Andonovska who drives the performance with wonderfully extroverted command throughout...bolstered with remarkable accuracy by the (Deutsches Kammerorchester) via Dean as conductor, Andonovska’s wunderkind display is a real highlight this evening."...Drowned in Sound, Lina Andonovska and Deutsche Kammerorchester
