Libby Abrahams, one of a cluster of boutique agents who fled a crumbling IMG, has signed a very young British conductor Ben Glassberg.

Ben, who is about 23, is assistant conductor at Glyndebourne this summer and founder of the London Young Sinfonia.

Libby’s other artists include Teodor Currentzis, Tomas Hanus and Helene Grimaud.

    Having Currentzis in their roster is nothing to brag about

      I just wanted to say exactly the same.

        What’s wrong with Currentzis? (genuinely interested!)

    I wonder why all these 20-somethings get hired by powerful agents. I doubt they have anything to give to the orchestras, unless “youthful energy” is what they want, whatever that means. Embarrassing.

      You don’t know what you are talking about. Ben Is a top class musician who has much more to offer then just “youthful enthusiasm”. Last night he just stood in at glyndebourne, everyone there can see what a great leader he is.
