The first podcast from Noted has been released, following the Noted Roundtable on Inclusion and Diversity.

Noted Round-ups are short podcasts that follow the Noted Roundtables – an international series which looks to bring about change in the performing arts industry through discussion and implementation. Through Noted, we want to generate new solutions to industry problems, not just with our own industry members and artists, but with brand leaders from different fields, and also—most importantly—the audience! The Roundtables bring together this unique combination of stakeholders on an equal footing.

The very first Noted Round-ups episode is a discussion on what was originally “diversity”, but now referred to as “inclusivity”. Here we discuss minorities in the performing arts industry, focusing on those backstage (not on stage), covering race, gender, background, and more.

We came out of this session with the following action points:

  • When recruiting, be more explicit about what we don’t want or need (e.g. an arts degree), and present the image of our ideal candidate in the advertising
  • Either ensure that job titles clearly state what the position is, or make them more sexy and fun
  • Create inclusive communities in the performing arts administrative sector, spanning across both audiences and potential employees
  • Showcase the exciting elements of our industry, through podcasts, videos, partnerships with mainstream brands
  • Shake up internal systems – reverse mentoring, creative sessions led by interns, engage more with outside the industry

This episode is hosted by Kathleen Alder and Olivia Brown, produced and edited by Olivia.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, guitarist Michael Poll is releasing his album “7-String Bach”  on 6 April 2018, and WildKat is delighted to be promoting this release in Germany.

Michael’s “Bach Project” brings Bach’s music to life here in the 21st century, fusing modern instrumental practice with historical techniques and doing it all on an instrument that is built specially for the job by American master luthier Robert Ruck.

Bach left manuscripts for two complete instrumental suites for Lute, the predecessor of the modern classical guitar, and for the Bach Project Michael has recorded them using state of the art technology in one of the world’s iconic recording studios: Abbey Road.

A seven string guitar is a special musical creature: the range of the modern guitar plus five notes taken from the double bass. This instrument makes it possible to play Bach’s music in its original register, as he heard it.

Classical guitarist and conductor Michael Poll has performed across North America, South America, and Europe, including in Barbican Hall, Wigmore Hall, and the National Theatre of Panama. Active both as a performer and a conductor, Poll’s 2016-2017 season includes headline concerts for the Wilderness Festival with Yijia Zhang, the Bloomsbury festival as both guitarist and conductor, six engagements conducting the Goodensemble orchestra in London including a Gala Performance in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, and guitar recitals in Boston, Washington, San Francisco, London, Philadelphia, and New York. Poll’s collaborators have included pianists Stephan Ciric, David Malusa, John Fisher, and Jason Bae, tenor Peter Devoran, barritone Jake Muffett, and his brother conductor Edward Poll.

The CD, which will be released on Orchid Classics, is available from 6th April 2018.

We’re delighted to announce the next Noted Roundtables in Berlin and London on 12th and 14th March 2018 respectively.

Following our initial roundtable on entrepreneurship, which attracted lots of interesting and detailed feedback, we’re very happy to announce our second topic for discussion:

International Women’s Day took places on Thursday 8 March 2018 and with it comes a huge number of initiatives and opportunities for women with the aim of equality across the sector. We want to explore these initiatives and start to develop solutions on how to diversify the administrative structure of the classical music industry to include more minorities.

As part of this discussion we want to find out how to target, engage, and support minorities (including those from BAME backgrounds, low socio-economic backgrounds, those with disabilities, women, and more).

Questions to be answered:

  • How can women in the industry help to diversify the sector even more, helping and supporting other minority groups?
  • What can “woke” male-led companies do to bring in a more diverse workforce?
  • Where does the lack of diversity in the classical music industry start? Is it in the classroom? How can we remedy that?

Rather than discussing the problem, we want to find the solutions.

A huge thank you to our client, the Royal Over-Seas League, for hosting us in one of their beautiful rooms in London. Why not check out ROSL’s Annual Music Competition on Tuesday? Details here.

Also we’re very grateful to Idagio for hosting us in Berlin. We’re sure that you know them already but if you’ve somehow missed this impressive, sleek streaming platform, check them out here.

We are delighted to welcome celebrated classical guitarist Artyom Dervoed.

Having won 16 prestigious awards in various international competitions, Artyom Dervoed is in a class of his own – or in the words of Universe Guitare, he truly is the “Tsar of the guitar”.

Born in Russia, Artyom learnt to play the guitar at the age of six with Sergey Annikov, then studied with Elena Svetozarova and Leonid Reznik. He later studied at several high-profile music schools, such as the Schnittke Music College and Gnesin Academy (Moscow), Koblenz Guitar Academy (Germany) with Aniello Desiderio, and Accademia Chigiana (Italy) with Oscar Ghiglia.

A milestone of his career was the release of his album in 2008, featuring Russian guitar music. Released by Naxos, it became one of the top ten bestselling chamber music records worldwide. Artyom Dervoed is a regular guest on the world’s most prestigious stages, including the Berliner Philharmonie, Carnegie Hall and Bunka Kaikan.

Among Artyom’s many awards is the first prize at the 39th Michele Pittaluga International Classical Guitar Competition in 2006, as well as the H.R.H. Princess Cristina 18th International Guitar Competition in 2009, making him the first Russian to win both competitions.

His efforts in the classical music scene are not only limited to performing and recording amazing interpretations of works – one of his main ambitions is stepping into the footsteps of cellist Rostropovich and violinist Bashmet to present the classical guitar as a first-class solo instrument.
 He also regularly commissions new works and transcriptions to expand repertoires for the classical guitar, leading to world premieres.

Artyom is the founder of the Moscow Guitar Chamber Music Festival in the Bashmet Center and co-founder of one of the most important classical music festivals in the world – the annual Guitar Virtuosi Moscow International Festival, presented by the Moscow Philharmonic Society at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall. As Artistic Director, Dervoed puts together an exciting program of national and international soloists, chamber and orchestral performances. For this year’s 13th edition, which will take place from 20th – 24th March, he will perform the world premiere of a new concerto for guitar and orchestra by contemporary Russian composer Alexander Tchaikovsky.

We are delighted to promote his upcoming performances at the Constella Festival in Cincinnati on February 23rd, 2018 and at the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Berlin on March 28th.

Moreover, Artyom Dervoed is the head of the classical guitar department at the Bashmet Center in Moscow and he teaches at the well-known Gnesin Academy.

We are very pleased to welcome two fantastic new clients, and welcome back another, as we begin the new year!

The Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy is now in its 61st iteration, and its outstanding programme will take place between 13th July and 1st September 2018. In 1957, Yehudi Menuhin moved with his young family to Gstaad, Switzerland, and was overwhelmed by the beauty and power of the bucolic Alpine village. After being asked by the then head of tourism for Gstaad, Paul Valentin, to support the summer tourist season with some concerts, Menuhin rang in the inaugural festival in the summer of  the following year. Two of the performers in those first concerts were Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears! The high-calibre bookings continue, and in 2018 the festival looks to welcome Jonas Kaufmann, Hélène Grimaud, Nigel Kennedy, Sol Gabetta and Juan Diego Flóres, among a stellar line-up of stars from the opera, choral and instrumental worlds. WildKat PR is delighted to be leading their press campaign again in 2018.

The eminent Italian pianist and composer Roberto Cacciapaglia has enjoyed a varied and successful career to date. He performs his own compositions in the most prestigious theatres and institutions all over the world, sharing his innovative and inspiring compositions. Roberto blends electronic experimental music with the classical tradition, and for many years has been researching the powers of sound. He founded the Educational Music Academy in 2013, giving a voice to young musical talents, composers, musicians and pianists by way of support and mentorship. Roberto recently released the 10th Anniversary edition of his QUARTO TEMPO album, which was mastered at London’s Abbey Road Studios.

Lithuanian composer Gediminas Gelgotas embodies a unique musical language built upon modern, multi-stylistic influences that with a dream that combines austere melodic beauty with a stunning rhythmic drive. Once praised by Terry Riley for his ‘unique and compositional voice’, he embarked on the journey to creating his own legacy with works showcased and premiered all across Europe, while establishing his own ensemble – the New Ideas Chamber Orchestra (NICO) – and working closely with Kristjan Järvi of the Baltic Youth Philharmonic along the way. Adopting a traditional work ethic, Gediminas proudly works with pen and paper across all his compositions. He grows, chases and explores an organic idea when it comes to mind and injects his own unique blend of pop and classical cultures. With many of his pieces already performed at a number of prestigious events, Gediminas’ work defies all genres and makes it accessible to a wide audience.

“Having myself worked on the Gstaad Menuhin Festival press campaign in both 2015 and 2016, I am delighted to welcome the festival team to work with us again,” our London Director, Olivia Brown, comments. “They present an inspired programme, in a truly beautiful setting, year on year.

“I’m also very pleased to be expanding our roster of contemporary composers by welcoming Roberto and Gediminas. We look forward to introducing their music to UK and European audiences, reaching and expanding on the broadening new audience of contemporary classical music.”

(Written on January 3, 2018 )

It’s been an incredibly busy year at WildKat and we are so excited to continue our successes into 2018. As always, we’ve tried to pack as much as we can into a blog post for you all. The projects and clients mentioned below are a tiny portion of our highlights – Enjoy! 😊

First, a message from our Founder, Kat, who is already in the Austrian alps, ready to start the holidays:

“2017: you beast! I must admit I am quite glad to see the back of it… We launched and worked on so many projects and events, it felt like we somehow skipped the usual “quiet periods”. It has certainly been a challenging year; the uncertainty of the cultural and creative industries was felt across our sector and so internally we had to rethink our offerings, our staffing and general structure.

We have had some fantastic new clients and projects signed up to WildKat. Some personal highlights have been:

And so many more.

Mostly this year has been for me expanding the WildKat offices, opening a new one in Paris next year and working on our non-profit arm, Noted.

I have travelled for both companies to all corners of the world, and have had some great meetings and events take place, centred around the ethos of sharing and forwarding our industry. I think there is amongst all the anticipation on what future events (including Brexit, US etc) will bring a sense of renewed movement forward. I am encouraged to see so many positive ideas. The Noted Fellowship is in the next stage with announcements to follow in the New Year and our roundtables have come to life in Berlin, London and New York with fascinating thoughts and exchanges. My vision of having the newly graduates give the artistic director ideas on the future of our sector, is coming to life and its VERY rewarding!”

 

Internally we also have some great news:
  • Carolin is embarking on the ultimate WildKat perk: a 2 month paid sabbatical to New Zealand. (We are all just a tad jealous (“a tad” is putting it very lightly!! – Olivia)
  • Great staff have joined our teams all over the world, waving at at Eliza, Rachel, Alex, Nicolo, Maddie, Katja, and our continually growing pool of freelancers, consultants, and collaborators
  • Olivia was promoted to our UK Director and is, as expected, thriving in her new role. She also hits the 5 year anniversary mark next year and will at some stage embark on her sabbatical

Olivia says, “2017 has been a pretty turbulent year on all counts – whilst we have celebrated some truly inspiring projects, and championed everything that is BRILLIANT in our sector, and what it has to offer, we have all had to face a heavy and consistent hailstone of, let’s face it, awful news in the general media and across socials.

Saying this, one thing that our sector does best is use these events to inspire creativity, and to reflect and respond using our art and passion. Following the development of the “B-word”, we had the hilarious “The United Kingdom of Earth: A B***** Opera” at Tête à Tête’s 10th festival. Soosan Lolavar’s “ID, please” had its UK premiere at the same festival, reflecting on Trump’s travel ban. Ariana Grande sold out the Manchester arena for a benefit concert, following the bombings. There are many, many more examples, and there will continue to be.

As we look ahead to 2018, it’s important to remember the important of collaboration, cooperation, and participation. We have had such fresh ideas in discussion and have started to make change happen. We want to continue to work together, create conversations, involve diverse & conflicting voices, and create progress for classical music and the arts. I’m so excited for what is to come…”

Olivia visits New York for the first time!

Before Carolin heads off on her travels, she says, “Launching the Noted Fellowship this year was a real highlight, and I was so inspired to see all the innovative ideas that came through the application process. The only downside was choosing who would go on to stage 2. Good luck, everyone!

I’m very excited to make the most of my 2-month sabbatical, part of the WildKat perks, to not only have a long holiday (!) and travel the world, but also to return to the company and the industry with a refreshed and revived perspective.”

We are all really looking forward to 2018, particularly as we are celebrating 10 years of WildKat with a big party (joint with Music in Offices – happy birthday to you too!) and lots of fun events.

Thank you to everyone: clients, industry, friends, colleagues – the ones who champion us, critique us, support and dismiss us. We love you all and we look forward on what’s to come!

Happy holidays! 🎄🎄🎄
