Violinist Simone Lamsma Departs IMG for Paris Boutique Talent Agency

Dutch violin virtuoso Simone Lamsma has left management agency IMG - to join the roster of the Paris-based boutique agency Solea Management

It has been announced today that Dutch violin virtuoso Simone Lamsma has left management agency IMG - to join the roster of the Paris-based boutique agency Solea Management.

A graduate of the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal Academy of Music, the 31 year old violinist is a former major prize winner at the Oskar Back, Benjamin Britten and Indianapolis International Violin Competitions.

“I am thrilled to join Solea Management for my worldwide General Management …” Simone has told The Violin Channel.

“It is an exciting and positive new path in my career … and I very much look forward to a great partnership …” she has said.




Founded in 2005 by Romain Blondel, Solea Management’s roster currently includes violinist Daniel Hope, pianists Beatrice Rana and Seong-Jin Cho, conductor Fabien Gabel and the Modigliani Quartet.

The move comes as a further blow to IMG following the announcement in January 2015 that Ex-Senior Vice President Charlotte Lee had left the company to form boutique agency Primo Artists – taking with her stars Itzhak Perlman and Nicola Benedetti amongst others.

It was also announced in May 2015 that violinist Joshua Bell and Time for Three would follow agent Matthew Zelle from IMG to the New York-based boutique talent agency, Park Avenue Artists.
