Just in from Intermusica’s Stephen Lumsden, who bravely goes where others have gone before:

Intermusica Founder and Managing Director Stephen Lumsden has announced that one of the world’s most celebrated pianists, YUJA WANG, is joining the company for worldwide general management, effective immediately.

Yuja Wang, speaking from her home in New York, said: ‘It is with great pleasure that I join Stephen and his team at Intermusica. I value their long-term vision, dedicated work and personalised support of each artist. Finding the right team to help realise artistic goals and dreams is so important. I am very close to a number of Intermusica artists, and I know that the agency’s passion for music and international network are the right fit for the next stage of my career. I am excited about this fresh start and look forward to starting the new year with lots of interesting projects with the personalised support of my Intermusica family.’

    At the time of posting this blog Mr Lebrecht, with (or without) the best of intentions, may not have been aware of an interesting feature of Yuja Wang’s new agency arrangements. In his statement on the Intermusica website, MD Stephen Lumsden says that he looks forward to working with Yuja’s local agents. Turning to her agent list online, I see that other than Asia and France, which presumably are to be directly agented by Intermusica now, her local agents for Spain, Italy and Japan all remain in place.

    And there is one new local agent, for North America : none other than Earl Blackburn, the original agent who showed her such devotion. It seems the circle has been completed in a nice way.
