DEDICATED TO CLASSICAL MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT
FOUNDED BY ANASTASIA BOUDANOQUE
Anastasia Boudanoque is proud to announce the launch of Primavera Consulting, a new firm focused on producing high-end classical entertainment events and consulting performing arts organizations globally. The company will also represent a select roster of artists, reinforcing traditional personal talent management with digital and social media, endorsement opportunities, as well as educational and charitable initiatives.
Primavera’s unique global expertise at the nexus of performing arts management and cultural diplomacy allows it to consult various types of organizations on their strategic international initiatives, which aim to promote peace and foster mutual understanding through the power of the performing arts.
Said Long Yu, Artistic Director of the Beijing Music Festival and Music Director of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, “Anastasia sees the big picture but also knows how to turn vision into reality. I am delighted that she is building a strong new platform for more exciting projects to come. Congratulations and best of luck to Primavera!”
Stefan Forsberg, Executive & Artistic Director of the Stockholm Concert Hall and Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, said of Anastasia Boudanoque, “I have during many years had the great pleasure working with her on some of Stockholm Concert Hall’s most prestigious events. She has among many other things supported me with artistic connections and negotiations for the annual Nobel Prize Concert in Stockholm in an excellent way. She has also been of great value when the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra has done special projects on our tours to US, and specifically to Carnegie Hall. I am looking forward to many future collaborations during years to come.”
Said Christoph Eschenbach, Music Director of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, “Anastasia Boudanoque’s work as an artist manager shows her excellent musical taste, genuine human connection to her artists, and profound understanding of the music business. We worked together intensively on many projects, including big orchestra tours, and I was never disappointed! I wish her all the best in her new enterprise. “
Primavera’s worldwide institutional clients include the Rostropovich Foundation, Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, Beijing Music Festival, St. Petersburg State Conservatory, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and various agencies and missions of the United Nations.
The firm’s artist management roster features some of the world’s most exciting and renowned musical figures, including:
- Pianist Dmitry Masleev, winner of the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, whose upcoming engagements include a tour of Germany with the National Philharmonic of Russia and Maestro Spivakov and performances in Berlin, Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Beijing, Tokyo, and New York.
- The Philharmonics, a highly successful ensemble made up of members of the Vienna and Berlin philharmonics and two extraordinary jazz musicians. Their TV appearances are enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of viewers from Paris to Tokyo and their recording partnership with Deutsche Grammophon has so far yielded two best-selling albums.
- Mikhail Agrest, scion of the great Russian conducting tradition who has honed his craft at the Mariinsky Theatre and forged active artistic relationships with the world’s top orchestras including Staatskapelle Dresden, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Seattle Symphony, Finnish National Opera, and Royal Opera House Covent Garden.
- Dmitry Sitkovetsky, an artistic catalyst, who has been making a considerable impact on every aspect of musical life for over four decades appearing as a violin soloist and conductor with virtually all major orchestras and recording dozens of albums including, most recently, Dutilleux’s L’Arbre des Songes with the Concertgebouw Orchestra and Mariss Jansons.
Primavera looks forward to announcing further management clients, tours, and partnerships in the future.
