“As a lean, global, young, and flexible company, Primavera can respond very quickly to the dynamics of the marketplace, and do so with passion and love of the artform,” the 30-something year old has said.
Primavera’s artist management roster will include violinist and conductor Dmitry Sitkovetsky, pianist Dmitry Masleev, conductor Mikhail Agrest – and the jazz ensemble, The Philharmonics.
Primavera’s launch clients also include the Rostropovich Foundation, Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, Beijing Music Festival, St Petersburg State Conservatory and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
