Biz news: Gidon Kremer switches agent

The violinist has signed with Columbia Artists for the English-speaking world, parting company with Opus 3, in a deal that also includes his travelling Kremerata Baltica ensemble.

It’s quite a catch for the rebranded ex-Cami list.

Kremer comments: ‘In the spirit of Oscar Wilde’aphorism‘I have a very simple taste: I like only the best.’

Columbia’s Doug Sheldon says: ‘I am most pleased for the opportunity to work with Gidon, surely one of the world’s most respected, admired and forward-thinking artists, and thrilled for the chance to develop imaginative programs for Kremerata Baltica in several international territories.’

Sonia Simmenauer at Impressariat Simmenauer will continue to represent him in Europe.
