Label wars: DG snatch Sony queenmain
The yellow label today signed Valérie Gross, sometimes known as the human face of Sony Classical.
Based in Berlin, Valérie has been Vice President A&R Sony Classical International, which meant that she exec-produced such artists as Jonas Kaufmann, Vittorio Grigolo and Lang Lang (who has since gone back to DG).
At DG, Valérie will be A&R Director Vocal & Opera Productions, starting immediately, which is unusual.
It appears her relations with Sony are now non-existent.
