WildKat PR is thrilled to be working with Blüthner on their inaugural Piano Series. Seven virtuosi will showcase the piano with its unique Golden Tone in a series of seven recitals held at St John’s Smith Square over the 2017/18 season.

From its founding in 1853 by Julius Blüthner, the eponymous firm has remained family-run. Current CEO, Dr Christian Blüthner-Haessler, enjoyed a successful career as a cancer surgeon, before taking the reins in 1996, and being named Businessman of the Year in Germany in 2004 after just 8 years in the industry.

From its inception, Blüthner has been an innovative company, which can be seen today in its impressive range of Design Pianos, and the extraordinary PH Grand. Blüthner has also pushed boundaries exploring the mechanics of tone production, with the creation of the Aliquot string, an added fourth string which vibrates sympathetically, cylindrical soundboards, and angle cut hammers, resulting in a truly special sound.

The starry list of Blüthner advocates includes Brahms, Mahler, Bartók, Debussy, Reger, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, Liberace, Stevie Wonder, and Ariana Grande.

The seven programmes held at St John’s Smith Square will be performed by outstanding talents from across the world, highlighting the versatility, depth, and character of the Blüthner instrument. Repertoire will include Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven; Tchaikovsky, Chopin, and Brahms; Stravinsky and transcriptions of Chinese music; Sjogren, Nielssen, and Nilsson. Tom Poster’s Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective will open the series performing Clara Schumann, Brahms, Schubert, and Robert Schumann.

After having previously worked with Kimiko Ishizaka on her Goldberg Variations project, WildKat PR are delighted to welcome back this talented pianist.

A gifted and obviously devoted Bachian” (James R. Oestreich, New York Times), Kimiko Ishizaka has composed her own completion to Bach’s unfinished masterpiece, Die Kunst der Fuge. In September Kimiko will be performing the London premiere at St. John’s Smith Square, with a pre-concert discussion of her completion with composer Robert Hugill.

kimiko

In 2012 Kimiko Ishizaka received worldwide attention and recognition for her innovative recording of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”, a project that was financed by her fans using the crowdfunding website Kickstarter.com, and which Ishizaka released directly into the Public Domain in a desire to make Bach accessible to as many people as possible. As a result, her recording of the Goldberg Variations is the most visible recording of this work on the internet today.

A similar fan funding campaign led to her 2015 release of Bach’s “Well-Tempered Clavier” which has been praised by multiple reviewers as their favourite interpretation of the work ever. This album was also a great commercial success – a significant fact in the face of ever-declining record sales – having occupied the #1 sales position on both Amazon.com and Bandcamp.com upon its release.

kimiko-bw

Kimiko Ishizaka attains her unique Bach style through meticulous coupling of articulation to fugal structure, complete abstinence of the sustaining pedal, and many hours of practice in total darkness. Kimiko is passionate about sharing personal and unique ideas and interpretations that are truly her own, consciously refraining from listening to other artists’ recordings.

Apart from her rigorous efforts towards interpreting the music of J.S. Bach, Kimiko is also passionate about the music of Frédérick Chopin, and about competitive weight lifting.

Keep up to date with news from the Kimiko through her websiteYouTube, Facebook and, as always, through the WildKat PR blog.

A Steinway artist, Chad’s most recent album The Chopin Variations reached #1 on the Billboard, iTunes and Amazon Classical charts in 2015. His music has huge popular appeal, and is listened to over 1.7 million times per month on streaming platforms. Described as ‘the classical CD for people that hate classical music’ (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), Chad Lawson’s music is the perfect first step on a journey into classical music.

Chad is a national speaker and blogger on the subject of today’s independent music industry, and US streaming service Pandora have invited him to speak before Congress about the groundbreaking influence of streaming services on the ways people listen to music.

WildKat PR is delighted to introduce our newest client Anneleen Lenaerts. The 28 year old Belgian harpist is making  a name for herself as one of the leading soloists on her instrument. Since December 2010, Anneleen has been the Principal Harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic. With her Album ‘Harp Concertos’, she presents a 2015 remastering of fellow Belgian composer, Joseph Jongen’s music. Anneleen has also released two other CDs, ‘Chopin&Liszt’ and a collaboration with oboist Karel Schoofs. She furthermore collaborated with last season’s raising star clarinetist Dionysis Grammenos.

From an early age she started winning an impressive array of prizes, namely 17 prizes between 1997 and 2009, of which the “Grand Prix International Lily Laskine” and the ARD International Music Competition in Munich are particularly outstanding. Since then, she has played in many high-profile venues all over the world, including Wigmore Hall in London and the Festspielhaus in Salzburg.

Whilst the romantic lyricism of these works is closely associated with the qualities of the harp, it is her virtuosity which gains particular attraction, thanks to Anneleen Lenaerts’ skill and articulation. Highly praised by critics, she is known for her impressive technical ability, her precise playing, variety of tone and excellent musical phrasing. This year she will be touring the USA as well as Germany, Austria and Belgium.

We are very much looking forward to working with Anneleen and to help her getting a bigger audience for her wonderful music. Keep checking the WildKat PR blog for updates and also WildKat PR blog for updates and also Anneleen’s website.

WildKat PR is pleased to welcome the New York Concert Artists and Associates (NYCA) to our roster. We will be working with them on an exciting series of recitals, entitled ‘The Berlin Debuts’, where various talented international musicians make their premiere performances in Germany at the prestigious Berlin Philharmonie.

Recognising that artists are commonly subject to pressure from many angles such as the public and funding restrictions, Artistic Director and Founder, pianist Klara Min, wanted to create a platform where artists could be themselves and maintain artistic integrity and originality. Inspired by Schumann’s Davidsbund, the belief that in every situation, the ultimate artistic decisions are the domain of the musicians themselves, Klara founded NYCA in 2008 with the intention of replicating this idea in a modern context.

NYCA is led ‘by musicians for musicians and the musical public’ and regular meetings are held to discuss each other’s concerts and projects whilst also striving to help each other with any available resources. Klara also ensured that a priority to help musicians communicate more directly to the general public sat at the heart of the organisation. NYCA strive to forge dynamic connections between all areas of the music industry: musicians, managers, presenters, concert halls and also to promote young artists through NYCA’s own concert series, such as the one WildKat PR is working on.

The series will span through March and April and will then continue in October 2015 and spring 2016. Korean pianist Junghee Ryu, on the 16th March, will perform a programme including Mozart’s Piano Sonata no.15 and Schumann’s Fantasie op.17. Ryu already has an impressive CV, having played with the New York Sinfonietta and the Bulgarian Varna Philharmonic Orchestra. Sunhwa Park will perform a recital of favourites from Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart and Debussy on the 13th April. She has won prizes at numerous competitions such as the American Protégé International Competition of Romantic Music and the World Times Competition. To round off the season, Sarah Chan, who has also won many awards such as New York’s Carnegie Emerging Artist Award, will bring us Debussy, Ravel, Albéniz, Turina and Chopin.

Keep an eye on the website for more information about the artists and visit these websites to purchase tickets to The Berlin Debuts.

Die New York Concert Artists (NYCA) präsentieren: The Berlin Debuts

WildKat PR heißt die New York Concert Artists and Asociates (NYCA) als neue Kunden willkommen. Wir werden mit ihnen an einer spannenden Konzertreihe arbeiten, die mit dem Titel „The Berlin Debuts” in der renommierten Berliner Philharmonie stattfinden. Dabei werden mehrere talentierte internationale Musiker auftreten, die das erste Mal in Deutschland auf der Bühne zu sehen sind.

Die Pianistin Klara Min, Intendantin und Gründerin der Organisation, erkannte, dass Musiker in ihrer künstlerischen Entwicklung häufig von verschiedensten Einflüssen, wie zum Beispiel öffentlichem und finanziellem Druck, gehemmt werden. Um dem entgegen zu wirken, gründete sie NYCA als Plattform, die Künstlern die Möglichkeit gibt, sie selbst zu sein und ihre künstlerische Integrität und Originalität zu erhalten. Klara gründete NYCA im Jahr 2008. Inspiriert durch Schumanns Davidsbund wollte sie seine Idee, dass endgültige künstlerische Entscheidungen in jeder Situation bei dem Künstler selbst liegen, in einen modernen Kontext übertragen.

NYCA wird organisiert „von Musikern für Musiker und die musikalische Öffentlichkeit“ und in regelmäßigen Treffen wird über Konzerte und Projekte diskutiert und sich gegenseitig geholfen. Klara legt großen Wert darauf, dass die Organisation Musikern hilft direkter mit der Öffentlichkeit zu kommunizieren. NYCA strebt danach, dynamische Verbindungen zwischen allen Bereichen der Musikindustrie zu knüpfen: Musiker, Manager, Konzerthallen und Labels, und junge Künstler in eigenen Konzertreihen zu fördern, wie zum Beispiel die Konzertreihe in Berlin an der WildKat PR gerade arbeitet.

Die Konzertreihe findet ab März bis April diesen Jahres statt und wird im Oktober 2015 und Frühling 2016 weitergeführt. Die koreanische Pianistin Junghee Ryu wird am 16. März ein Programm aus Mozarts Klaviersonate Nr. 15 und Schumanns Fantasie Op. 17 aufführen. Ryu hat einen beeindruckenden Lebenslauf vorzuweisen, sie spielte bereits mit der New York Sinfonietta und dem Bulgarian Varna Philharmonic Orchestra. Sunhwa Park spielt in ihrer Aufführung die beliebtesten Stücke von Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart und Debussy am 13. April. Sie hat bereits Preise bei namhaften Wettbewerben wie dem Protégé International Competition of Romantic Music und der World Times Competition gewonnen. Zum Abschluss der Reihe gibt Sarah Chan ihr Programm aus Debussy, Ravel, Albéniz, Turina and Chopin. Sie ist ebenfalls mehrfache Preisträgerin und hat unter anderem den New York’s Carnegie Emerging Artist Award gewonnen.

Auf der Website von NYCA finden Sie mehr Informationen über die Organisation und die Künstler.

Tickets für „The Berlin Debuts” erhalten Sie hier.
