The Italian pianist Beatrice Rana, already signed to Warner, has quit the IMG warehouse to join boutique agency, Primo Artists, for north and South America.
Primo is run by ex-IMG high-flier Charlotte Lee. She looks after Itzhak Perlman, Nicola Benedetti and some others.
Beatrice, a silver-medallist at the Cliburn and a BBC New Gen Artist, is planning to devote much of her next season to Bach’s Goldberg Variations. On the piano, which is considered the opposite of cool.
Hot, in fact.
