Shake It Off 26th IAMA International Conference 7-9 April 2016 TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht

Symphony Orchestra of India TOUR TO SWITZERLAND January 2016

The premiere of Zakir Hussain’s Peshkar in Geneva

Victoria Hall was packed to the brim on Thursday evening, and the Geneva audience warmly expressed its delight. It felt the commitment, the enthusiasm and the discipline of this ensemble, which played with ferocious energy and appetite. - Le Temps The ensemble tackles the different works with extreme composure, and proffers a fresh and striking vision of the overture to The Bartered Bride by Smetana, as well as the Concerto for Orchestra by Bartók... It seems to be in the cards, that this first tour will not be the last... - Bachtrack A colourful sound painting unfolded in front of the audience, which listened attentively to the unfamiliar and – at the end – showed its appreciation with a standing ovation, quite uncharacteristic for St. Gallen. - St. Galler Tagblatt

26th IAMA International Conference

welcome, willkommen, bienvenue Aino Turtiainen-Visala, IAMA Chairman IAMA is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2016. Building on the legacy of BACA, which began in 1954 as a UK artist management association, IAMA’s foundation in 1996 marked a fundamental step towards today’s globally inclusive era. This is reflected in the increasingly interconnected nature of artist management and music in general: managements share and represent artists; orchestras, festivals, opera houses and promoters serve a sophisticated global audience whose needs are mirrored across the world. The Western Classical Music canon is studied, played and appreciated in every country, and brings people together. This sense of togetherness is expressed in the 26th IAMA International Conference, which plays a vital role in the Association’s network: I maintain that there is no more significant

Peter Tra, Conference Chairman

My thanks go to Peter Tra, Conference Chairman and Programmer at TivoliVredenburg, and my fellow board member, Hannes de Vries from GE#Sharp Artists Events.

City of music and more attempts, successes and failures. Let’s be a part of this miraculous era by shaping and enjoying it! Utrecht’s new six-venue performance space – TivoliVredenburg – is an ideal place to investigate this topic. The IAMA Conference takes place in the midst of an abundance of classical, jazz, pop and contemporary music concerts. Barriers quickly vanish: hipsters appear to love symphonic music; classical aficionados respond positively to indie pop music; and jazz connoisseurs soon open their ears to the most challenging notated scores.

The search for new audiences is important to us all, yet I believe there is nothing wrong with the traditional format of classical concerts. The music continues to be of unparalleled beauty and today’s musicians perform this music more brilliantly than ever before. This tradition will doubtless continue, albeit for diminishing audiences and, as a result, fewer concerts. Yet this leaves more time and space for other kinds of music, so let’s learn from each other’s

gathering in the music business world! Over the next three days, we hope that you will get to know the people around you. Our board and staff members are here to help and we invite you to consider joining IAMA if you are not a member already.

So let’s shake off the feeling we have got a problem. On the contrary, in this era of changes everything is possible. Let’s shake it up!

Peter Tra Peter Tra, Concert Programmer, TivoliVredenburg

Welcome to Utrecht, a city brimming with music and happy to host this 26th IAMA International Conference. In many ways the Conference matches our city’s musical values: bright, inspiring, welcoming and connecting. TivoliVredenburg is one of the most inspiring music buildings in the world, where every year our Early Music Festival blossoms, as does the International Chamber Music Festival of Janine Jansen and her friends (Jansen has recently been succeededed by the young cellist Harriet Krijgh), and every two years the Franz Liszt Piano Competition takes place but also where artists such as Tanita Tikaram and Elvis Costello enchant their audiences. I hope that your Conference will be instructive and inspiring, but it is no less my hope that you will will return to Utrecht soon for one of our unique musical experiences or for a holiday, revealing the many beauties of our city to the full.

Jamie Bernstein 8th April


Beginning 15 years ago with ‘The Bernstein Beat’, a family concert about her father’s music modelled after his own ground-breaking Young People’s Concerts, Jamie has gone on to design, write and narrate concerts for worldwide audiences of all ages about the music of Mozart, Copland, Stravinsky and many others. Jamie creates and narrates two educational concerts per year with the New World Symphony in Miami; these ‘Discovery Concerts’ are specially designed to attract audiences of all ages who are less familiar with concert-going.

Jamie Bernstein is a writer, narrator, broadcaster and filmmaker who has transformed a lifetime of loving music into a career of sharing her knowledge and excitement with others. Inspired by her father Leonard Bernstein’s lifelong compulsion to share and teach, Jamie has devised multiple ways of communicating her own excitement about classical music.

Jamie travels the world as a concert narrator, appearing everywhere from Beijing to Caracas to Vancouver. A frequent speaker on musical topics, Jamie has presented talks around the world, from conferences in Japan to seminars at Harvard University. In her role as a broadcaster, Jamie has produced and hosted shows for radio stations in the United States and Great Britain. She has presented the New York Philharmonic’s live national radio broadcasts, as well as live broadcasts from Tanglewood.

Jamie is the co-director of a film documentary Crescendo: the Power of Music, which focuses on children in struggling urban communities who participate in youth orchestra programmes for social transformation, inspired by Venezuela’s ground-breaking El Sistema movement. The film has already won numerous prizes as it travels the festival circuit, and will soon be released on Netflix. More about the film can be found at Jamie has also directed her father’s chamber opera Trouble in Tahiti at the Moab Music Festival and at the Festival del Sole in Napa, CA. In addition to writing her own scripts and narrations, Jamie writes articles and poetry, which have appeared in publications such as Symphony, DoubleTake, Opera News and Musical America. She also edits Prelude, Fugue & Riffs, a newsletter about issues and events pertaining to her father’s legacy. More about Jamie’s multifaceted life can be found on her website:

keynotespeaker Iván Fischer 9th April works being performed in the United States, the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Germany and Austria. He has also directed a number of successful opera productions.


His thirty-year-long partnership with the Budapest Festival Orchestra (BFO) is one of the greatest success stories on the classical music scene. The BFO’s frequent worldwide tours as well as a series of critically-acclaimed and fastselling records, released first by Philips Classics and later by Channel Classics, have contributed to Iván Fischer’s reputation as one of the world’s most successful orchestral directors.

Iván Fischer is the Music Director and a founder of the Budapest Festival Orchestra, as well as the Music Director at Berlin’s Konzerthaus and Konzerthausorchester. Recently he has seen his reputation rising as a composer too, with his

As a guest conductor, he has worked with the finest symphony orchestras in the world. The Berlin Philharmonic has played more than ten times under Fischer’s baton, and he spends two weeks every year with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He is also a frequent guest of several leading US symphony orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestras. As Music Director, he has led Kent Opera and the Opéra National de Lyon, and was Principal

Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, DC. Many of his recordings have been awarded prestigious international prizes. He studied piano, violin, and later the cello and composition in Budapest before continuing his education in Vienna, where he studied conducting under Hans Swarowsky. Iván Fischer is a founder of the Hungarian Mahler Society and Patron of the British Kodály Academy. He has received the Golden Medal Award from the President of the Republic of Hungary and the Crystal Award from the World Economic Forum for his services in promoting international cultural relations. In 2005 the government of the French Republic named him Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and in 2006 he was honoured with the Kossuth Prize, Hungary’s most prestigious arts award. He received the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award, Hungary’s Prima Primissima Prize and the Dutch Ovatie Prize in 2011, and was given Honorary Membership to the Royal Academy of Music in London in 2013.


Sally Groves 9th April


Since joining Schott Music in 1974 through to her retirement from the firm in 2014, Sally Groves has built a reputation as one of the musical world’s most dedicated and persuasive advocates for new repertoire. Her work for British composers such as Sir Michael Tippett, Alexander Goehr, Gavin Bryars, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Steve Martland, as well as international figures such as György Ligeti and Hans-Werner Henze, has left an enormous musical legacy. Sally has worked closely with orchestras, venues, festivals, opera houses and dance companies all over the world to develop performance projects for composers. Particularly notable projects include the world premieres of Michael Tippett’s late masterpieces such as The Mask of Time and The Rose Lake, as well as his fifth string quartet which is dedicated to her. Mark Anthony Turnage’s emergence as a major force in the musical world occurred under Sally’s close and careful guidance, while her work creating UK projects for the likes of Ligeti, Penderecki, Henze, Holliger, Widmann, Hosokawa and many others has had a great and lasting impact. More recent highlights have included the signing to Schott of composer and conductor Ryan Wigglesworth, who now counts the likes of the Cleveland Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and BBC Proms among his commissioners.

It is a mark of the esteem in which Sally is held in the musical world that she was appointed a Director of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, a member of the Board of Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and a member of the Royal Northern Sinfonia’s advisory panel. Sally has also dedicated her own time to numerous trusts and charities, always looking to find ways to support new music of the highest quality. In 2013 Sally received the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Leslie Boosey Award, in 2015 was awarded the MBE for services to music, and in 2016 received the ABO Award from the Association of British Orchestras.

Peer-to-peer sessions These are simultaneous, hour-long forums where you can get to know others and discuss an issue of mutual concern 1 Communicating with promoters Artist managers report that it is increasingly difficult to communicate with promoters. Neither email nor phone seems to be effective so what works today? What are the underlying reasons and pressures that promoters and artist managers face, and what are their solutions. Prepare for some deep-level reality… Session leader: Leelo Lehtla, Director, PLMF Music Trust 2 Recruiting new senior artist managers The millennial generation (and indeed Gen X before them) are now seeking roles in senior arts management. However, are boomers making room for them or indeed even preparing them for senior management? How do we create an environment in arts management that nurtures and develops young talent while drawing on the expertise of our emeritus?

What are our responsibilities as a sector and what strategies should be in place to future-proof the demand for classical music? Session leader: Chris Lorway, Director of Programming & Marketing, Roy Thomson Hall and Conference Chair for IAMA Toronto 2016 2 Touring with instruments Orchestral touring or solo artists can run into trouble with ivory and bans on precious materials on arrival in some countries. This session is designed to inform and take forward recommendations for lobby purposes by the world’s major auction houses. Session leader: Paul Cutts, Global Managing Director – Decorative Arts, Christies 3 Managing social media Artist managements and promoters’ expectations have changed with respect to social media and artists are increasingly obliged to partner the promoter in publicising performances. In general, this expectation exists even when it is not reflected in artist contracts. What strategies and practical suggestions can be shared so that artists, artist managers and promoters can benefit in changing circumstances?

26th IAMA International Conference

speakersthursday Andrew Green - Moderator Andrew Green has been writing and broadcasting about music for over three decades, interviewing many of the best-known performers of the day. His first connection to the music business was as an artist manager with Ibbs & Tillett in London, where he looked after, among others, Mitsuko Uchida, Shura Cherkassky and the Alban Berg Quartet. After making his radio debut with a feature on contralto Clara Butt in 1985, Andrew has gone on to present or present/ produce more than 300 music programmes for BBC Radio 3, Radio 4 and the World Service. Most recently, he has made programmes about London’s one- time premier concert venue, the Queen’s Hall, and on the composer William Lloyd Webber. Andrew was a regular presenter of In Tune and BBC Proms broadcasts on Radio 3, and of Music Review on the World Service.

Andrew’s parallel career as a journalist has seen him writing for a string of UK newspapers and most of the leading musical journals, including Classical Music, Early Music Today and BBC Music, for whom he has written in recent times on subjects as diverse as JFK and music, the history of harmoniums and music heard at the Battle of Waterloo. For many more years than he was an artist manager, Andrew has been writing about the profession for Classical Music. Andrew is also a long-term visiting research fellow at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK, where he teaches and devises projects in the area of oral history. This work is soon to be featured in a BBC radio documentary.

John Harte John Harte is Chief Executive of Aurora Orchestra, which since its launch ten years ago has established itself as one of the most adventurous and dynamic forces in British classical music. Under John’s leadership, the orchestra has built successful London series at Kings Place (as Resident Orchestra) and the Southbank Centre (Associate Orchestra from 2016); staged tours to Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Mexico and Russia; and won prizes including the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Ensemble Award and a German ECHO Klassik Award. Aurora’s approach combines creative programming, innovative presentation, and bold collaborations across genres.

Aurora is developing a major new circus partnership based around Britten’s Les illuminations for the 2016 Aldeburgh Festival. John studied history at Cambridge, where he was a choral scholar. Before Aurora, he worked with the British choral label Collegium, and completed a doctorate in Middle Eastern History at the School of Oriental and African Studies. As cofounder of the Choir of London he maintains an active interest in music education projects, with a focus on supporting student musicians in the Palestinian Territories.

Recent highlights include what are thought to have been the first-ever fully memorised performances of complete orchestral symphonies in the UK for the BBC Proms. Currently,

Tobias Rempe Tobias Rempe grew up in Nuremberg, Germany, embarking on music-making at the age of seven. He was a member of the Bavarian State Youth Orchestra, the folk-rock band Fiddler’s Green and the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie. While studying violin under Ulf Klausenitzer and Professor Ulf Hoelscher, he became a founder member of Ensemble Resonanz. His first involvement in ithe Ensemble’s management was in 2004/05, when he initiated the Kaispeicher entern! concerts in the foundations of what was to become the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg.

In 2008, Tobias ended his career as a professional violinist and took over the management of Ensemble Resonanz gGmbH. His most recent project with the Ensemble was the development of the ‘urban string’ series in Hamburg’s Schanzenviertel and the opening of the new concert venue, the ‘resonanzraum’. He is looking forward to taking Ensemble Resonanz on to new adventures as the orchestra sets out to boost its international profile while remaining true to its urban roots – in residence in the Elbphilharmonie and at home in St Pauli.

speakersfriday Luc Van Loocke Luc van Loocke started out her professional life as a teacher of classical guitar and music history. Since 2003, she has been director of Weinstadt Artists Management, established by the late Liliane Weinstadt in 1988. When Luc joined Weinstadt, the agency specialised mainly in local representation of artists in Belgium.

He studied with Umberto Pineschi, Ton Koopman, Jesper Christensen and Gustav Leonhard, who was his professor at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam. Over almost three decades, Marco has been immersed in the rediscovery and performance of Early Music repertoire from the Baroque and Renaissance. Since 1999, Marco has been the artistic director of the Cantar Lontano festival held each year in Ancona, on Italy’s Adriatic coast. It is here that he has explored the art of ‘Cantar Lontano’,

an extraordinary vocal technique that originated in the Marche Region of Italy in the 16th century, in which individual singers were strategically placed around a church to create the aural illusion of a choir resonating throughout the space. In 2010, Marco began working with the opera director Pier Luigi Pizzi on the works of Monteverdi. His latest initiative is the Canalgrande Adriatic Baroque Orchestra, made up of musicians born and raised near the Adriatic Sea – an international project that unites players from Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Albania and Greece.

Skip Sempé Skip Sempé grew up in New Orleans, studied music, musicology, organology and the history of art at Oberlin Conservatory in the United States, and completed his training in Europe with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam.

A harpsichordist and conductor, Skip created Capriccio Stravagante in 1986, which now includes three ensembles: Capriccio Stravagante, the Capriccio Stravagante Renaissance Orchestra and Capriccio Stravagante Les 24 Violins.

Skip is particularly known for his interpretations of French harpsichord music, his adventurous approach to playing Bach and Scarlatti, and his performances of virginal works by Byrd and his contemporaries. He is regularly invited as a guest director with many of Europe’s leading Early Music ensembles. In founding the Paradizo record label in 2006, Skip has added the role of impresario and record producer to his portfolio of activities. Paradizo also undertakes special publishing projects, including a documented homage to Wanda Landowska and a volume of Skip ’s Essays on Music and Performance.

26th IAMA International Conference

The SOI meets with rapturous applause at Zurich’s Tonhalle The Symphony Orchestra of India’s three-concert tour of Switzerland earlier this year marked an important staging-post in the development of one of Asia’s most exciting young orchestras. Founded in 2006, the SOI is based at the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA) in Mumbai and is the brainchild of the Centre’s Chairman, Khushroo Suntook. IAMA members may recall Mr Suntook’s presentation of the SOI at last year’s IAMA Conference in Helsinki. The event proved an invaluable opportunity to alert influential cultural leaders and promoters to the potential of India’s nascent Western classical music scene, highlighting the quality of a professional Indian-based orchestra that collaborates with conductors of the calibre of Charles Dutoit, Yuri Simonov and Augustin Dumay. The seed for the Swiss tour was sown in March 2014, during a meeting in Zurich between Mr Suntook and Mischa Damev, general director of Migros Kulturprozent Classics. As their discussions began to bear fruit, the challenge lay in devising a programme which would be different from those presented by European and American orchestras participating in the Migros Classics concert series. The importance of an Indian dimension to the programme was stressed by the promoter, and the response of the SOI’s management was to ask India’s leading tabla player, Zakir Hussain, to compose a concerto for tabla and the orchestra. The five-movement work, entitled Peshkar, is the SOI’s first commission and received its world premiere in Mumbai in September 2015, to huge acclaim from audiences and critics. Meanwhile, Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra proved to be an ideal partner-piece after the interval.

IAMA comf. FINAL 4 PRESS.indd 24

This unusual two-concerto programme travelled to Switzerland in January this year, when the SOI played in some of the country’s leading venues: the Tonhalle, Zurich; Victoria Hall, Geneva; and the Tonhalle in St Gallen. On a freezing winter’s night in Zurich, the audience quickly warmed to the uniquely Indian strains of the tabla in the peerless hands of Zakir Hussain. Moreover, the packed hall was clearly impressed by the SOI’s deft handling of Bartók’s virtuosic Concerto under conductor Zane Dalal. The performance was met with an ovation, and similar scenes played out in Geneva and St Gallen, where the SOI’s musicians were given a rapturous reception by Swiss audiences. Critic Thomas Muller, writing for the classical music website Bachtrack, described his enchantment at SOI’s performance, adding: ‘Hats off to the Indian subcontinent which, drawing strength from its own heritage and culture, opens itself up to ours, offering us an intoxicating blend of musical styles. It seems very likely that this first tour will not be the last...’

The Amatis Piano Trio was founded in 2014 by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han. The 2015 Parkhouse Award winners are rapidly establishing themselves as a leading piano trio in Europe. The highlights of last season include concerts at the Wigmore Hall, Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Beethoven-Haus Bonn. They have performed extensively throughout Europe, including appearances at the Salzburg Chamber Music Festival, Grachtenfestival Amsterdam, Beethoven Festival Bonn and Utrecht Chamber Music Festival. Future engagements will see them travel to the Festival Pablo Casals in France as well as venues in Indonesia, China and the USA. Soon after forming the Amatis Piano Trio won the audience prize in Amsterdam’s renowned Grachtenfestival Competition, which led to many concerts in major venues throughout the Netherlands. In 2014 the trio was invited to the prestigious Trondheim International Chamber Music Academy in Norway, where they worked and performed with distinguished musicians such as Daniel Hope (Beaux Arts Trio), Miguel da Silva (Ÿsaye Quartet) and Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet). In 2015 they became the youngest finalists of the International Chamber Music Competition ‘Schubert und die Musik der Moderne’ in Graz, Austria and shortly after were named ‘Dutch Classical Talent 2015/16’. The Amatis Piano Trio is committed to modern music and thus founded the Dutch Piano Trio Composition Prize encouraging young composers to help further the piano trio repertoire. They have been members of the European Chamber Music Academy since 2015.
