Daniil Trifonov, the foremost pianist of his generation, has left London-based Intermusica, which looked after him in the UK, Australia and about half of Europe. He has now placed his worldwide management in the hands of Opus 3.
Nobody has announced anything, but all websites have been updated.
Why did he jump and dump?
Word on the street is he got frustrated by the amount of Intermusica attention that was being consumed by a certain other pianist.
UPDATE: Opus3 have sent the following clarification:
Opus 3 has been Daniil’s manager in North America since 2011. They have a nearly decade-long relationship that began early in Daniil’s burgeoning career. Recently Daniil has been keen to streamline his management and Opus 3 was Daniil’s obvious choice of single/worldwide representation, not just because of his long relationship with them but also because he is now based in New York. Daniil made this change in August 2019. I think the “word on the street”, as you put it, is more the product of someone’s fevered imagination than based in any truth.
