Salzburg-based Ziyu He has been signed by AskonasHolt.

He won the International Mozart Competition and the Yehudi Menuhin in 2016, but classical agencies don’t move fast.

    He can have the best management in the world but as Silvia Marcovici said, the gods will have to smile on him or its all over. Contrary to what Isaac Stern said, even the very best talent faces obstacles too great to overcome. Best of luck to Ziyu.

    So, either agencies are stupid and slow not to sign winners of competitions, or, as repeated ad nauseam in your other well-meaning posts, competitions are riddled with corruption and never produce winners who deserve to be signed by agencies. Which shall it be, dear Norman?
