We hear that the talented Frenchman Lionel Bringuier has left his boutique manager Mark Newbanks and joined HarrisonParrott.
A Dudamel protégé in Los Angeles, Bringuier was promoted too soon to the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich and is now in job search mode. He works often with his pal Yuja Wang, who also left Newbanks not long ago.
Newbanks has been Dudamel’s only manager through his career. He is left with just three sticks: Dude, Salonen and Paolo Bortolameolli.
