We hear that Senior-VP Tanja Dorn has handed in her notice. So have her two assistants.
The likelihood is that some of her artists will follow her out of the IMG door.
They include the Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra (pictured), the junior Järvi (Krystian), the violinist Arabella Steinbacher and the pianists Jan Lisiecki and Vaentina Lisitsa.
Tanja, based in Hanover, is a bit of a loner and a live wire. IMG will quickly limit the immediate damage of her departure. But too many agents and artists have walked out in the past year for the business to feel totally secure.
