Agency owner will judge major piano contestmain
The jury has been announced for next year’s Iturbi Competition in Valencia, Spain, and eyebrows have been shooting up at the sight of Barrett Wissman as one of its members.
Wissman, a convicted fraudster, is co-owner of IMG Artists.
Sitting on a competition jury he has the opportunity to be both poacher of talent and gamekeeper for his own artists.
Agency bosses have no place on an independent jury, no matter how clean their hands might be, or how sincere their repentance.
