It has been announced today that Chinese crossover classical pianist Lang Lang has this week signed with Los Angeles-based international talent and sports management agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
Moving forward, CAA will handle Lang Lang's touring, soundtracks, digital content, endorsements, personal appearances and philanthropy, billboard.com has today reported.
Regarded as one of the entertainment industry’s dominant and influential companies, CAA’s client list includes George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Michael Douglas, Tom Hanks, David Letterman, Brad Pitt, Steven Spielberg, David Beckham, Sharon Stone and Meryl Streep.
One of the most widely-known classical artists today, the 34 year old Curtis Institute of Music graduate was invited to perform at the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony and the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final - and recently appeared onstage with Pharrell Williams, Metallica and Herbie Hancock at the Grammy Awards.
Lang Lang has indicated he will still remain with long-time manager Jean-Jacques Cesbron at CAMI Music, New York - and that CAA have been added to assist with new opportunities.
