While we were away, another foundation stone crumbled at the disintegrating artists management firm.
Libby Abrahams, senior VP and director of artist management in IMG Artists’ London office, has taken a walk. ‘The time has come to create a new venture within performing arts management,’ says her side of the statement. Which of her artists will go with her into the unknown?
Her list includes the violinist Sarah Chang; conductors Kristjan Järvi, Claus Peter Flor and Teodor Currentzis; pianist Helene Grimaud (whom she poached from Harrison Parrott) and the cellist Julian Lloyd Webber.
Libby’s resignation comes a month after conductors’ manager Sara Hunt decided to follow a different beat.
