We are delighted to share the news that Enticott Music Management, in association with IMG Artists, has signed the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year, 17-year-old cellish Sheku Kanneh-Mason for General Management. Kathryn Enticott, founder and director of EMM released the following statement today:
Reaffirming our commitment to the nurturing and development of exceptional young artists, Enticott Music Management is delighted to announce that cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason is joining our roster for General Management. Winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, Sheku’s ‘innate musical intelligence’ (Classical Source) was obvious throughout the rounds and the final with Dobrinka Tabakova (Jury Chair) commenting on his ‘electric‘ performance of Shostakovich’s first cello concerto and The Guardian noting that Sheku “is just what classical music needs.”
We look forward to advising and guiding Sheku as he embarks on his musical career, ensuring that he also has the space and balance he will need to develop as a musician in the coming years. It is a privilege to be involved from the outset.
