IMG Artists is delighted to announce that it has signed Armenian/American conductor Arman Tigranyan for General Management. Arman, the Founder and Artistic Director of the Camerata Armonia chamber orchestra, will be represented by Artist Manager Natalja Slobodyreva from the company’s Hannover office.

Born in Moscow, Tigranyan studied the violin at the Tchaikovsky Central Music School. After his family emigrated to the United States, he continued his training at the Peabody Conservatory. He furthered his education with Jean Ter-Merguerian in Marseille, before attending Karlsruhe Musikhochschule under the tutelage of Prof. Josef Rissin where he graduated with honours. He transitioned to conducting in 2010, beginning at the Freiburg Musikhochschule before studying under Vladimir Ponkin at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, graduating in 2016.

His conducting mentor, Paavo Järvi says, “Arman is a great talent to watch for. A charismatic conductor of deep musical insight, style, and subtlety. A naturally gifted artist who I would like to see develop an internationally successful career.”

Arman says, “I am honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with IMG Artists. With the brilliant management of Natalja Slobodyreva, as well as IMGA’s global network of professionals, I am confident that together we will achieve results of great artistic significance. I look forward to this exciting journey.”

Natalja says, “I am looking forward to working with this gifted and dynamic young American conductor. Arman’s refined musical sensibilities, expressivity and compelling presence will take him to new artistic heights.”
