Hello and Welcome!
I founded BT Arts in 2019 with the ambition of providing strategic and creative management to artists who are pushing the boundaries of classical music. Having worked closely with concert promoters and orchestras all over the world on behalf of soloists and conductors, I witnessed an increased demand for artists who have the potential to appeal not only to the traditional classical audience base but to the wider public as well. BT Arts is about the music and about the artists, all of who share a unique and distinctive vision of what it means to create music in today's world. Our aim is to reach the largest possible audience by creating a musical context that is accessible to everyone while never sacrificing sophisticated artistry or a high performance standard.
I look forward to working with you!
