Kristin Schuster, former Senior Vice President at IMG Artists, has joined CCM Classic Concerts Management in Turkheim, Germany.

She brings with her for worldwide management the pianist Igor Levit and conductor Antonello Manacorda.

Funny, you hardly ever hear of agents leaving somewhere else to join IMG. Any idea why?

CCM, a boutique management, has Diana Damrau, Philippe Herreweghe and Krzysztof Penderecki on its books.

    Igor Levitt’s not big treasure for IMG and general public.

  • Daphne Badger says:

    Manacorda wasn’t signed with IMG Artists.

  • PRoe says:

    Has IMG actually ever been a viable business? I thought the classical division ran on a constant loss. And let’s face it, most of the IMG agents are complete w*n*er idiots
